Plywood or Melamine: Which Materials Do We Use?


Materials make a difference when it comes to the quality, durability, versatility, and value of your cabinets. For these reasons, we prefer to use ¾ inch plywood here at LSG Woodwork. Though Melamine may be a less expensive material, it has a reputation for being prone to water damage and swelling. This can lead to the depreciation of the value of your kitchen and it’s enjoyability.


With its superior construction, plywood provides long-lasting strength that holds up to daily wear and tear, adding value to your home. It’s multiple layers of wood veneer, along with edge banding applied to the plywood, gives this material a moisture resistance giving you peace of mind.

Do you want to stand out and make a statement? Plywood is a versatile material which can be painted or stained. So, whatever your style is, we can match it.
