If I am suppose to get plywood flooring for my new house and the and the builder is telling me that he is using edgegold the first question is, is that considered plywood and the second question is how can using edgegold instead of plywood effect the construction
He's giving you a screwing. Edgegold is like a particle chip board. Cheap Cheap. Insist on the 5/8 plywood that was agreed on.
To your second question if it ever got wet for any reason you stand a chance of being alright with the plywood while your pressed board tend to swell up right away.
Plywood will delaminate once it gets wet.
Gold Edge has been treaded and is rated to not change shape or loose strength when it does get wet under normal construction time spans.
It even has drain holes made into the edges.
I've used nothing but this or Advantech since they came out and never had an issue.
May want to down load the PDF to see for yourself the difference.
I also would never use 5/8, use 3/4 T & G instead.
