I believe you are referring to MDO and not MDF and it's not the laminate that's the issue.. it's the core......
how many here have commercial outlets available to them...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Yes the exterior version of MDF. Almost every large city has a commercial wholesaler. Or you can purchase through a local cabinet shop, have them order it for you when getting their order. I use to do that from time to time for customers. Opens you up to many more products available, and better quality. Most of the big box stores use import (think China) for their lumber products, not all but many.

I'm not speaking about MDO (medium density overlay over plywood) Look up Medex, it's the largest supplier of exterior MDF. It is 100% MDF used in outdoor signage nation (possibly world) wide.

I know this is late. I did this 11 years ago and it is holding up well. I used ceramic tile, which a lip.
