I was wondering if anyone has heard of cresdek? In the brochure it says for the flooring, we triple our 2x8's on the ends of the home and double them every 8 feet where there is a seam in our decking. These 2x8's are topped with cresdek. Does anyone know if this is good material like they say? It says it is twice as strong as OSB or plywood. Anyone know???

"Cresdek" is another name for particleboard the strength of it is comparable to osb or plywood BUT....DO NOT let it get wet once it gets wet it will warp and then swell to twice the its thickness,and then it will crumble and begin to fall apart ....not good!
