Cutting Plywood

I need to get a few sheets of plywood for my attic. I wanted to get the sheets cut in half to be roughly 2' sheets. I was wondering if Home Depot or Lowes will cut the sheets in the store so that I can transport them home.

I know for certain that HD will cut the sheets, I think they give 2 or 3 free cuts with the purchase of wood. I've never been to Lowes (Canada here)

Lowes will also cut, most charge a fee

yes HD cuts and first few are free. it is worth it to take the time and get them to cut it. they can do a good and fast job. also makes transport easier.

i get all my 2x4 cut by them too.. everything. its ridiculous how much they do for me (and how much i spend there)

alls well that ends well..

HD carries plywood already pre-cut in 24" widths specifically for attic installation. Look where the insulation and rafter vent is.
