We’re no strangers to heat and heavy rains—in our country, it’s quite normal to have a sunny morning and a heavy downpour in the evening. While we can protect ourselves from unexpected changes in the weather with umbrellas and boots, we must think about our homes, too. How many times have you feared about the flood entering your property or roofs peppered with holes?

It’s important that you check the roof regularly to see if there are damages that need to be fixed. You may also want to work on a few simple home improvement projects as early as January to make sure you won’t have bigger problems once the rainy season starts. If you’re looking for the best plywood that can withstand tough weather conditions, Santa Clara Marine Plywood may just be what you’re looking for.

A household name, Santa Clara Marine Plywood has been known for quality since 1923. Not only has it become the top choice amongcontractors, property developers, and furniture makers—it’s also the trusted brand of many boat-builders.

The plywood was tested to endure the soaking and drying cycle of boats. When it comes to building or renovating your dream home, the Santa Clara Marine Plywood is often used in areas that are exposed to harsh elements—like the ceiling, wall panels, and as roofing base for asphalt shingles. If you’re revamping the kitchen, the said material has got you covered, too. It can be used for pieces that often get wet or soaked such as the kitchen cabinets and countertops.

According to Randy Ng, executive vice president of SMWPI, maker of Santa Clara Marine Plywood, each plywood sheet that comes out of their factories goes through tight quality control measures and strict processes to ensure the integrity of every ply. After the meticulous log selection, the next steps involve human expertise and the latest technology. Each batch undergoes three days of boiling test to meet international quality standards. When shopping for building materials, just look for the laser-etched logo—once you see it, you’re assured that the piece was manually inspected by skilled workers and has passed quality measures.

Curious about this building material? Santa Clara Marine Plywood is available in all major hardware stores—at CitiHardware branches in Davao and Surigao and at Wilcon Depot (key cities in Luzon).
