Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJandShanon Excellent product!
We used this to close in the sides on a metal carport and it worked perfectly and painted up really nicely! We did put caulking in the seams to ensure a tight fit. It cut easily with a regular blade in our circular saw and we did apply two coats of paint which dried very quickly. We would definitely recommend and/or use this again for any project as we've been very pleased with it.

Put an addition on the back of my small house with this product about a year and a half ago. Still looks new. Went up fast and easy and I've never done siding before. Will buy again for my next project!

Be real careful handling, corners soft. If using nail gun set depth just flush with panel face. If screwing just sink bugle head screw to face. I did both on two sheds. Pre-primed, I used a heavy nap roller and painted. 1st shed 8 years old no signs of wear, trimmed out with 2x3 boards corners, top around windows and door. 2nd shed just made first winter no wear. Built 12ft x 30ft shed for friend 1 yr old still perfect. Most economical siding available. Two people can side any 8ft walled shed in a day easily. Overlapping edge handy, plan where they will meet. Standard 2x4 wall construction 16 in OC perfect. I built 3 doors with it also, no problems 8 yrs old, 2x4 framed door opening and 2x4 frame for door. Ensure to install center cross brace in door construction. All 2x4s mounted flat around edges of siding to make door. Standard door handle installation easy then.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 51plymouth Good for the money.
I bought six sheets of this product to re-side the south side of a 35 year old garage that is sided with the same type of product. For new construction I would use something better but for this type of repair this works well. I put 1"x4" batts on the seams because I had to renail the old siding about 10 years ago and I used batts then. Just be careful with the corners, nail it well, and use a good paint and it should last a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Product is great, However BEWARE HOME DEPOT no longer carries the trim
I bought this to side a 16 x 12 shed that I built. I had ordered trim pieces and discovered that I was 4 short. I then discovered that Home Depot no longer carries the trim pieces. The sales associate informed me that they had a clearance.
I would never have bought a product knowing that they would no longer carry the trim, and from what I can tell no one else in my area carries it either.

I used SmartSide as the siding when I added a sunroom to my house. Installation was a breeze. The surface is a textured faux wood grain with a primer finish. You can run your hands over the surface and never get a splinter. I built this a couple years ago and still haven't painted it, and it looks like new. I used the scraps to trim around the inside of my garage doors. That was an easy installation as well, and it looks great.
I want to finish the inside of my storage building, but I don't want to remove everything in order to install, mud and sand sheetrock, so I plan to use SmartSide. I'll just nail it up and be done! Painting will be optional. A big plus is that you don't generate a lot of dust that you'd get with a cement covered products, and it is easy on saw blades compared to cement coated products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Very pleased with the results
Very pleased with the results overall.
Had to "paw" thru the pile of these sheets at my local H.D. since a number of the sheets had "blown-out" corners or edges.
Primed face & edges with bare OSB backside. Front side has 16" on center vertical design. This is very helpful for nailing since my studs are 16" OC for this shed.
Easy to cut with standard woodworking tools; hand saw, circular saw, jig saw or table saw. Not overly heavy to manage by one's self. Overlapping edges makes situating the next sheet easy & hides the seam.
Only drawback was the price. Less costly than T1-11 but higher than the ~$10 "standard" OSB equal.
