Answer: 
The price is per package which covers 15 square feet before waste. Figure 5-10% for waste; more for a herringbone pattern and less for horizontal or vertical. More if you are going to color match.

Answer: 
Yes, this can be used for a porch ceiling, but you might be better off with full-length Western Red Cedar planks. They're not as aromatic as these (really doesn't matter outdoors), but the random lengths of these boards will be a problem since you need to fasten at the end of each board and you'll need to land on a rafter.

Answer: 
I would worry about it either bloating from moisture or drying out even further. That being said, it is not expensive so you could give it a try and replace it with a better quality product if it does not last.

Answer: 
If you want to use cedar, buy cedar in the wood section of HD-1x4(nominal or 1x6 nominal, there may be 1X8, not sure). It is not Eastern Aromatic Cedar. I have recently used for a raised bed planter but not sure about long term reliability.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value, be prepared for work. Not for the feint at heart. My experience is with about 16 cases of this product. I found, on average, only between 30-40% of the product to be immediately usable (straight, no cracks, etc...). Some boxes had only 2 straight pieces and some were well over an inch out of true. That said, this is Cedar, a very dynamic wood that can quite easily be bent out of shape doing nothing on its own in a rack for much more then a week. Think of the last time you bought a 2x4 and had to look through the pile to find a straight one. Now make them cedar, much thinner and hide them in a box... Some will be out of whack. As an amateur woodworker, I was prepared for this so, while it's an inconvenience to cut these down to sizes, straighten and re-mill the end laps, it was doable. If you don't have a table saw and a lot of patience, these could be frustrating. However, they're still almost half the price of some "freshly milled" versions from my local specialty wood-store. It's also way easier then buying 4/4 cedar and milling my own. They are VERY aromatic planks and make for a great closet. If you've got the time to spend, these are a good value, just know that they've probably been sitting around for a while and, because of the natural properties of cedar, will need some love to make straight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used as a flooring After reading other reviews I think one of two things are happening, either people's expectations are way too high or they don't know what they are doing. the material is 1/4" thick it's not going to be perfectly straight just know that when you buy it. Second if you plan ahead and take the ones that have a bad curve and cut them in half you've eliminated most of the bow. Use these newly cut pieces to start and finish your rows and you can use every piece in the box. I didn't line the walls like it is intended for, I used it for flooring in a walk in closet. My only other suggestion is use liquid nail or similar to glue it down in addition to nails. May 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by So much waste due to warping We bought 8 boxes out of every box we couldn't use between 3-4 due to warping. This product isn't easy to work with it is very brittle and not straight. If we had to do it again we would get the thicker version. The smell and grain are wonderful tho. I do not recommend this product to anyone. What a waste of money, time and patience. April 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by useless for the purpose for which they are intended Virtually every board in the 2 boxes we bought was not cut straight so either the top or bottom of the board would not tongue and groove properly with the one next to it. What good is a tongue and groove system when you cannot interlock them because the boards are all cut crooked? Half of each board is waste because in order to make them interlock, you would have to cut half of each board off. Don't bother buying them. February 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The material is warped, brittle, and difficult to work with. Out of the 7 packages I purchased, there were maybe 3 straight long planks. The bowing planks are fine, they can be trained, with some care and a nail gun, but most of them were also crooked. It is almost a joke to include the tongue and groove design since you will not find a pair of planks that fit together along the whole length. Some 4' planks were easily an inch off from straight. The material is also very brittle, particularly the yellow bits. We covered a closet floor with these, it looks nice now, but it took many many hours of cutting planks to size while trying to match imperfections in shape. This material is usable but buyer beware, a lot of work will be required. Spring for thicker better quality planks if you can. November 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Product Installing in walk in closet, new construction. Majority of packages were full length boards, and nice mix of colors. Waste due to flaws was minimal. Only a few planks were warped and was limited to the blond/sap wood. Used a 15 ga. nailer and power miter saw for the 45* cuts. I used glue in some places to span joints that did not fall on studs. Some flex between studs, but I can live with that. Some may want to install over dry wall or chip board. Bear in mind the product is harder than pine and don't try to nail close to the end or it will split. The alternative I considered was 1/2" product and much more costly. August 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A little tip to make the job much easier There are lots of boards that have some sweep in them. Sweep means if you put a 4 foot level along the edge it has a bow. I don't know what people expect. This is a 1/4" piece of wood shipped all over the country. I am shocked any of them are straight. This was my first time so I was disappointed to see that the boards did not line up very often. Much of a gap won't work because the error will accumulate and by the time you get half way there it looks horrible. I started by fighting the boards but that wasn't going all that well. Then I figured out the trick. It is too bad they don't share this little tip with you. It would have saved me some time and frustration. After I opened a box I took out all the pieces. I checked them for sweep and if they were within a 1/4" I considered that good. A 1/4" is easy to push in place. I marked the others so when I cut them in half I got rid of most of the sweep. Where I would cut would depend on where the sweep started and ended. Easy to tell once you did a few. You need lots of short pieces anyway. Once I did all the cutting the project went extremely fast. There was no fighting the boards anymore. I only had a few boards out of 25 boxes that need an added cut due to excessive sweep. I would also highly recommend a pneumatic nail gun. It hides the nail in the tongue and is very fast. The quality of the material is excellent. I didn't have a single board that had any imperfections that we unusable. Now you may wonder how this tip works since you now end up with 2 square ends with a lap. No you do not have to use a router to make a lap. I almost always used the square end at the staring point on each end of the wall. Square ends work perfect for that. I had a few cases where I had more square ends then wall ends so I butted 2 square ends together. It is almost impossible to find them when there are only a few instances mixed in. This is the first review I have ever written but I thought the product was getting a bad wrap sometimes and people were unnecessarily retuning pieces. Good luck and hope that helps.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not sufficiently kiln dried - Warps I purchased packages of this product and also the CedarSafe brand, both at HD. Following the instructions for acclimation on both, I unpacked the products and left it in the area that it was to be installed for at least 48 hours. At the end of that period, 90% of the boards had bowed. Of that 90%, 50% had developed a crook. With this type of product, bowing can be effectively dealt with during installation. However, a crook cannot be resolved and renders the material unusable. These defects are caused by improper kiln drying. I returned both products. If you buy either of these products, keep your receipt. Leave the material out for several days to acclimate to it new environment. Prior to installation, check it carefully for 'crook' warping. If even one piece is warped in a 'crook' fashion, return the lot or you'll be stuck with unusable material. I wrote to the manufacturer of both of these products explaining the problem I observed and neither have responded. August 21, 2015
