Rated 4 out of 5Â by Product It'll do
I knew that the wood wouldn't have to be perfectly matched because of height and location. I do wish that I had set aside the time to really pick through the pieces. The joints are a little sloppy so install techniques took a little fussing and tweaking. In this case because I was installing overhead, I testing my pieces in a run before tacking up. Be prepared to sand and put your gloves in your pocket before your trip to your favorite HD!

After my roof rotted I needed to replace the interior ceiling in the living room. The room previously had 3in of exposed beams with acoustic tile inbetween.After the roof re-do most of the space was filled with spray foam so we cut this product into 2ft strips and nailed it to the beams.
Though it's not recommended I covered it with two coats of polycrylic rather than paint. I have yet to cover the joints with trim but it's on the list. Have to say, it looks ok...(more
However, it does require a non-trivial amount of sanding so be sure to invest in or borrow a good orbital sander. Also, when moving wear gloves it splinters like nothing I've ever seen. Also, make sure you pick out your own boards because many are damaged.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gooby Decent alternative to t&g
This is better as a concept. I used it for a shed ceiling and its an economical alterative to tongue and groove. It was surprised at its flexibility; i torqued it pretty intensely getting it into my car and dropped a bunch of junk on it and it didnt crack or split. Aesthetically, it is just good enough. There is no way it could take a stain, as any gap or inconsistency is filed in with glue (or putty). That said it is just good enough for non-critical spots.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by misterjefferson Pretty decent stuff
If you pick through a stack of this beadboard ply, you can find some decent pieces without cracks or blemishes. It has been ideal for my basement walls, with just a quick coat of waterproofing. The only problem I had was that the laps didn't fit exactly, with the under side being longer than the exposed side, leaving a small but very noticeable extra space between sheets.
