Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bobthebuilder Cost Saving gone Bad
I have used this product several times over the years and have always been happy with it, until I just bought another batch for my own bathroom. The product is packaged exactly as it used to be and looks similar, however the manufacturer has changed the quality of the fiberboard used and not for the better! The new product is extremely flimsy and crumbles easily. It is much more difficult to slide the pieces together than before. Some executive at the manufacturer probably got a raise for cutting the cost of this product, but had no idea what a substantial change in quality resulted. I would much rather have had Home Depot charge me a dollar or two more had I received the quality product they used to sell.

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.

I purchased Cape Cod Beadboard Planking at Home Depot a couple of years ago and was very pleased with the product so, when I had a new project requiring the same look, I went back to the same shelf at the same Home Depot and got what I thought was the same product. What a disappointment. The original (good) product was made by PGM Products. This new stuff is made by Boise Cascade and it is pure garbage. It is thin and weak and it will not lay flat on the wall. The bead is shallow, the T&G is very difficult (sometimes impossible) to fit together. I have completed a ggod size room with this Boise stuff but if I can find the PGM board (or a comparable product) I am tearing out this Boise Cascade junk and starting over.

Poorly manufactured. T&G improperly milled . I should of took it all back but with a lot of extra work I was able to get it installed . Install area was 3 season porch so I could get away with installing it Rough and ready

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.
