A crucial element that makes or breaks the look and feel of your dream home is its woodwork. And a lot depends on the quality of the plywood you choose. More often than not, homeowners do not put much thought in their choice of plywood, and it is here that mistakes happen
Given that over 80% of the plywood industry is unorganized, your plywood selection must be well researched ON-THE-DOT. Any slip up, and you will end up investing in substandard products that steal your peace of mind.
Let us give you a case of Mr. Mohit Gupta (name changed due to privacy). Mr. Mohit was doing home renovation and was sold (rather pushed by contractor) non-branded plywood saying that its same in quality and there is no difference in branded vs non-branded. To save few bucks Mr. Mohit decided to go for non-branded plywood. In less than 18 months he would see kitchen modular hardware is falling apart because the cabinets is losing its strength (because the plywood was of lower strength). Mr. Mohit’s is not a one off case; it’s very frequent in India that such cases happen to millions of people on a daily basis due to large unorganized market that exists parallelly.
In this blog, we are sharing 5 reasons why to invest in high-grade plywood for your home. Believe us, this one right decision on your part is going to bring you and your family years and years of joy and hassle-free living.
REASONS TO BUY GENUINE-QUALITY PLYWOOD FOR LONG-LASTING WOODWORK
BENEFITS OF HIGH-QUALITY PLYWOOD
1. KEEPS YOUR FURNITURE LOOKING AS GOOD AS NEW
Wouldn’t it be great to build new furniture today and, ten years from now, your guests still think it is brand new and even compliment you for it?
Well, this is possible provided you buy high-quality, genuine and durable plywood for all your home’s furniture and woodwork needs!
This is Simply because good plywood retains its strength for many, many years, making it an excellent and smart investment today.
2. IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE LONG RUN
When you invest your hard-earned money into making your home, you are building a legacy for your future generations. And needless to say, such a lifelong investment deserves nothing less than the very best in the market, so your legacy continues to live.
Now, you may want to cut costs wherever possible. If you choose to buy cheap plywood, you will end up spending much more than you had initially planned.
Why? Because cheap plywood will significantly reduce the longevity of your build. Your home’s woodwork will look old faster, and performance issues are guaranteed to crop up in the coming years. Not just that. Fake, sub-standard plywood is highly susceptible to termite attacks, meaning you will face hefty repairs, additional labour work and lose your peace of mind.
Surely, your loved ones deserve better? So remember to choose wisely.
3.IT GIVES A STUNNING LOOK
The overall aesthetic appeal of your home’s woodwork depends on the quality of its foundation. Choose the right material with excellent finish and design, and you will build a beautiful home that is perfect for your family – not just today but the foreseeable future.
A common mistake homeowners make is to use high-end materials for the outside finish but low-quality plywood for the insides of the woodwork. As a result, during application, the contractor struggles to give the best finishing.
Sadly, the end product is full of undulations, lines, breakages, and cracks appearing within just a few months and cannot be repaired.
4.KEEPS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SAFE
Last but most importantly, buying genuine plywood means you are making the health of your loved ones your top-priority. You see, plywood contains formaldehyde chemicals that are harmful, even cancer-causing in some cases. Do you really want to take a chance?
Do not compromise on the health of your family and buy only high-quality plywood made with at least E-1 or E-0 grade emission norms that ensures long term health and safety.
5.IT WILL SAVE YOU PRECIOUS TIME
Another benefit of investing in high-quality plywood for long-lasting woodwork is saving time. Woodwork tends to happen towards the end of your projects and you want the contractors to give you the best finish on time. You see, inferior products are usually made with a lot of undulation and warping, resulting in increasing the amount of time a contractor takes in building your wood work as they have to make additional adjustments to the product to achieve the desired finish.
At this time, your contractor is left with two choices, better finish or get the project done on time. In addition, the more time spent on your woodwork, the higher the labour costs and more expenses for you.
What’s more, using substandard materials means an increased need for time to time maintenance (hinges coming lose within 1 year or door lock not locking properly within a few days) – which will eat into your precious time and busy schedules.
So doesn’t it make sense to get it perfect the first time around so you can save hours and hours of your time?
