How thick should Plywood be to walk on?
Considering this, is plywood strong enough to walk on?
You need 3/4-inch plywood. The thinner plywood is acceptable when the joist spacing is 16 inches. Thinner plywood can flex when you walk on it -- even with 16-inch spacing -- and this will damage the flooring.
Beside above, how thick should my subfloor be? the subfloors need to be thicker. For joist spacing of more than 16 inches up to 19.2 inches on center, the minimum thickness for both plywood and OSB is 3/4 inch. For joists spaced more than 19.2 inches on center, the minimum thickness for plywood is 7/8 inch and for OSB, 1 inch.
Keeping this in view, how thick should plywood flooring be?
The National Wood Flooring Association recommends a minimum plywood panel thickness of 7/8-inch for joist spans of 19.2 to 24 inches, and a minimum plywood panel thickness of 5/8-inch for joist spans of 16 inches or less.
What is the actual thickness of 1/2 plywood?
Typically, the actual thickness of plywood is 1/32 inch less than the nominal thickness.
