Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mac02 Easy to Use but TERRIBLE quality control
I really enjoyed how easy this product was to use for our wainscoting needs. This was the first time my husband and I had ever attempted to install anything like this in our home. My only complaint, and it is a BIG complaint, is that most of the panels arrived to our home chipped and broken (see pictures). There were at least two or three chipped panels in each box of six and one box was full of completely unusable paneling! Because we had to order these panels we could not go to the store to buy more. Fortunately, I ordered extra paneling and we were able to hide some of the chips in the tongue and groove paneling. The company needs to have better quality control or a better way to pack and ship these materials so that you are not left dealing with a defected product.
We used this product for both our bathroom and our dinning room. In the bathroom we used the suggested baseboards but in our living room we kept the existing 100 year old oak baseboards and it was easy to fit on the existing baseboards. So do not feel obligated to order the baseboards that come with this kit as you can complete the task with existing baseboards that have a flat top to them.
We did order the chair rail, chair rail cap and corner pieces for this product and all of those pieces were well packaged and free of damage. I would recommend this product to other users but with the caveat that you order more paneling than you require so that you have decent panels to work with from each box.

I can't believe how much this transformed my dining room. The product was not hard to install, even for me. My family is impressed, and my friends think I hired a carpenter. My basement is next!

I first bought the stock item in red label package at Home Depot. That was complete garbage. After extensive online research I found this available through online/special order. The price was high but the product is good. Cuts well with little to no chipping. Primed panels are nice and smooth. Takes paint well. Exactly 1/4" thick. They do get banged up in shipping with dinged corners. I was cutting mine so able to work around the damaged sections. Order more than you think you will need.

the wainscotting looks awesome in my bathroom and the chair rails are the icing on the cake.

I installed the beadboard using the existing base molding and chair rail. This material cut easy with great results. Unlike some other material we had seen the all of the surface detail was perfect. The tongue and grove feature slipped together leaving a very nice result.
