Georgia-Pacific Provides Rainy-Day Solution for Sub-Floors
Georgia-Pacific (Booth W3159) will be showing builders attending the upcoming International Builders’ Show in Orlando how they can protect their sub-floors from Mother Nature during the initial stages of the construction process — before the roof and exterior walls ever go up.
Plytanium DryPly plywood from Georgia-Pacific absorbs up to 40% less water than plywood without a protective coating for up to four weeks, the average time sub-floors are typically exposed during the construction process.
Using the plywood for sub-floors can help avoid delamination, warping and excessive edge swell, and Georgia-Pacific is offering a 100% builder satisfaction guarantee against those problems.
“Given that builders are looking for ways to protect the homes they build from the weather at every state of the construction process, we feel they will find this product very beneficial,” said Pat Lynch, vice president of sales for the structural panels business of Georgia-Pacific. “Plus, the 100% builder satisfactions guarantee gives builders added confidence in their sub-floor.”
Plywood has long been a choice of builders for sub-floors, roofs and walls because of its stiffness and durability. Many home owners prefer plywood because it lends itself to quieter floors and it provides them with the versatility to change floor coverings, whether carpet, hardwood or tile.
