    Re: OT Plywood question

    This is why you must fasten the temporary beam to the bottom of the joists, you don't want anything kicking out when pressure is on it. You can get killed easy. Maybe you can find a local...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    Probably just tackle it in two sections. You only need to lift/support half the length at a time. Then tackle the other half. Wish I could be there to help out. If the outside wall has dropped at...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    You can do this Cebu. Get a couple of stantionjacks and a laminated beam or screw together some 2 x 12's. What is the length of the rotted area? If it is less than 10 feet then a couple of...

    You should see the shit I am dealing with right now. I bought a property across the street from me. It finally went up for sale and after 15 years of putting up with barking dogs, rap music, drug...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    I am assuming a crawl space. You will need a couple bottle jacks and blocks on each end of a temporary beam to keep the joists up while you replace the sill plate. If it is that bad, you may need...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    This is true. I've noticed a drop in plywood quality over the last 7 years. I have been retired since last year but still do odd jobs. The actual size of the sheets has been off for the last 4...

    Yeah, maybe we could get back to the moon again with the power of OSB!

    Re: OT Plywood question

    OSB (Oriented Strand Board) is perhaps in its infancy. Think of the possibilities that would come about with newer technologies. If you could actually weave the wood together, like in some of those...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    I remember reading about an enormous marine plane developed by Howard Hughes that was made of plywood; The H-4 Hecules, also known as the Spruce Goose. I guess with the proper resin/binder, anything...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    No worries my friend. You can use the OSB just as long as you seal it well. I trowel filled and sanded the OSB in my shop/man cave upstairs and used a quality paint on it. I painted a large...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    I wonder if they are still using popple/poplar in OSB. Popple rots fast when wet. It is actually nice wood, just not for a wet location.

    Those damn carpenter ants can really do some damage. They got into a pile of plywood that I had stacked outside under plastic and really went to town on it. I had a bunch of hardwood stored in a...

    It doubt it's gotten better in that respect so I would still not trust it. I think for a patch it would be ok. I remember years ago when framing houses in the winter or in rainy weather, the OSB...

    Re: OT Plywood question

    This is true in my experience. I still do not fully trust OSB and it is nowhere near as strong as plywood. I actually did a couple of gym floors where the architect and mill spec'd OSB for the...
