Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Great for use over old ceiling tiles
I went to take down old 12"x 12" ceiling tiles and found the person who installed them used about a tube of glue on each ceiling tile. So went to plan b put up firing strips every 12" over the existing ceiling then nail gunned the breadboard to the fir strips. Putty all nail holes and caulked around the crown molding then painted. Wife is so pleased with the results. Had a little issue with tongue and groove damage but nothing we could not work around by using damaged as cut pieces. The store was great about taking back any badly damaged pieces. Project came out excellent looks 100 percent better.

Folks it is not that expensive and what you pay for it, it looks awesome. Ran it horizontally to get a shiplap look and achieved it 100%. Painted it with Behr CEILING white paint, wanted a flat finish and all paints with the added primer will not give you that wood/flat look. Did NOT caulk where you locked it in nor paint that or other grove so the lines would stand out and get a maximum real board/plank look. Have French Country design and it totally works. Master Bathroom, ceiling (primed back) 1/2 way down walls and bottom the wainscot HD sells in 3X4 sheets. Entrance same except ceiling, added behind white slip covered C&B sofa, DR behind fireplace and a few other places for design. Did not go wall to wall only used the 8ft length and on each side ran the panel down (vertical) the sides. It totally rocks and easy to do. IF you prime any of the back, do not get it in the groves so its easy to attach to another piece. Should post pictures, but still busy on projects. Go for it, plaster walls are so boring and add crown molding with this I think is a must.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will Plain walls are better than cheap imitation plastic
This product seemed to get higher ratings so I thought it would be worth ordering. I had it delivered to the store and did not even bother bringing it home.
The product would have been better if it had deeper grooves to simulate beadboard. You can barely see the grooves at 3 feet away and it would look like smooth walls viewing across the room. Grooves are the only reason people want to use beadboard - if they are nearly nonexistent then why bother.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMom Great Value - looks great!
This product is a perfect addition to give a room a stylish look and depth. We've used it in the guest bathroom and in our mudroom/hallway. Everyone comments on it. It makes a such difference and we love it! This was inexpensive and easy enough to install myself. I had no issues with the tongue and groove. It slid together nicely! It painted easily and is the perfect way to upgrade a space without spending a lot of money. Totally recommend it! . it really makes the space look nice!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TJ Not what it used to be BEWARE
The change in manufacturer was not an improvement. This stuff is poorly milled hard to work with and poor poor quality. What once was a great product is now not much more than paper with no body, no strength and poor fit. Step past this unless you enjoy frustration. Virtually impossibl to put the tongue together into the groove. without damage (assuming you can find a pack that isn't damaged in the store.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYWorkerBee Material is good quality, solid, water-resistant & nicely finished
I hope they continue to carry this product. We're using it to skin over an old plaster and it's working really well. Material is good quality, solid, water-resistant & nicely finished. Our installation is glue and nail, with some sections screwed into the studs for additional shoring and support. I like this product a lot! My room turned out great. No movement in boards. Will use this again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LouLou Easy to install, looks great
We installed this planking in our family room and it looks great. It was pretty simple to install, we used the moulding that goes with it and the planks fit into the pre cut groove. It's pre primed so was very easy to paint, only needed one coat! The only problem I had was I had to go to two Home Depot stores to get enough planks for my project.

I bought a similar product from HD 6 years ago and it was a breeze to work with. This is garbage. Even in short lengths it was almost impossible to engage the tounge and groove without damaging the board.
