Green Remodeling: Exterior and Whole House
Choose plywood with soy-based adhesive
Hardwood plywood is a common building material and a major source of formaldehyde exposure in homes and buildings.
Conventional plywood contains urea-formaldehyde, which releases toxins into the air, but the eco-friendly, soy-based adhesive eliminates these toxic gases. The area then becomes cleaner, and risk of airborne illness is greatly reduced, making it particularly beneficial for homes with children.
