Luan Plywood to Patch Plaster Wall


My first floor laundry/utility room will have a 4' high hole because of plumbing work (below is crawl space). The plumber said he could patch the plaster wall with luan plywood. The laundry room doesn't look that great so I'm fine with it. Do you guys see any problems with patching plaster wall with luan plywood? Like insects coming through the edges of plywood?

Luan Plywood to Patch Plaster Wall


Luan p;y falls apart when it get damp==in short order it will be a mess.

Either patch with drywall or use a better grade of ply.

Plaster is best repaired with plaster from my experience. You will need structure behind the repairs but luan is not the material of choice.

What you want to see is 'exposure 1' or exterior glue--

BC plywood is usually exposure 1----The letters stand for the face grades--A is smooth sanded--B is smooth with some patches--c has tight knots--D had void and open knots
