Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pat Ceiling Planking
I had some ice dam damage from a couple years ago and ended up demoing the ceiling in a first floor bathroom as a result. I hung new greenboard and sloppily taped it myself and so it stayed until last week.
I had been thinking about how to finish off the space with a little character and not much investment and stumbled upon this product. I viewed it as a low risk-high reward opportunity and installed the planking over the greenboard with construction adhesive and brad nailed the tongues into the ceiling joists. All told I completed the ceiling (60ish sf) in less than 8 hours including staining and poly.
The planking received the stain well and was thin enough that for some of the notching, I was actually able to score and snap. Some of the planking had some rough spots but I was able to bury most of those in the spoil when I cut the planks to length.
Time will tell how it holds up in the high humidity bathroom environment but it seems to be doing fine so far.

I used this in 3 different rooms of my house. If you want to talk about gorgeous, this is it! Sure your going to get some pieces that are less than perfect, but they can be used for short cuts or filler. I don't see why some people don't like it. Patience and persistence is all worth it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stacey Nice bookcase backing
I replaced a small stair railing with a bookcase and was looking for a bookcase backing that would look nice from both sides. This was beautiful, affordable, and pretty easy to work with. Some of the boards didn't come together as nice as others, but I didn't end up with any gaps either. I did take a little time picking a nice looking pack of wood.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bobthebuilder Great value and look for the price
I just installed the Trex rainaway system on my raised deck and used the panels as a cieling on my lower deck. I installed them in a herringbone pattern and it looks great. The installation is a little tricky at first, but it was not a problem. The panels may bow a bit, but they are thin enough to easily move into position. You just need to start at one end and work down the panel of the heavily bowed pieces. But, most were a breeze to install. I had very little waste, but needed a lot of shorter pieces for the herringbone pattern. This is a good product for the cost concious DYI'er with good to above average skill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NJNailbender Terrible stuff!
Extremely flimsy, more like a thick veneer than a plank, makes it very difficult to fit planks together and tongues and grooves blow out with even the slightest pressure. Agree with previous reviewers, better to slice off half the groove and install like shiplap. Clearly there is no quality control wherever this stuff is milled and packaged, is full of holes, broken tongues/grooves, under-width planks, out of six per package usually two were rejects. Warps as soon as you unwrap it, watched one piece go banana-shaped in just seconds. Finally gave up, returning unused, had to start job over. Am kind of surprised that HD would think this stuff is worth carrying.
