Installing The CDX Plywood Flooring
Plywood has a unique grading system on the basis of which it is used. If you are new to CDX, then you must know it is the exterior grade plywood and X in the name refers to waterproof glue and the exterior of the wood. The letter D refers to the face quality of the wood. A is for highest quality and B, C & D refer to a quality lower than the former.
CDX plywood flooring has become a lot popular lately. In order to get started with the flooring, first the vinyl from the floor is removed and plywood is installed. Usually, planks or squares of plywood are cut so that a design is formed when the flooring is applied.
The plywood floors are suitable for any room. It is recommended not to use this type of flooring for the kitchen because of water spills. Similarly, plywood floors are not recommended for basements because it is the area of the house is damp. If used in such areas, the flooring will get damaged soon.
CDX plywood is also used as a subfloor. For example, if you want to install laminate flooring, the CDX plywood subfloor has to be secured in a way that no movement is made. Once this is done, a foam underlayment is used. This will let the laminate easily expand and contract.
If you want to remove CDX plywood from the subfloor, that process is easy too. You simply have to cut the plywood into strips so that none of the vinyl backing is left. Removing the staples might be a hard process. For this, you will need nose pliers. In case you don’t know how it is done, do not experiment with it, just call a professional to handle the task. You can always look for different designs in plywood flooring for home décor.
