Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by r00k82 Great material to work with.
I used this as the back paneling for a wainscoting installation for a nursery project. The wood was easy to work with and was ready for a coat of primer/paint. The finished product looks amazing! I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a multi-use piece of underlayment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thetexasdeb Tile Underlayment
I purchased 10 sheets to use as an underlayment for my peel-n-stick tile. I had OSB and I knew the tile would not stick to that. It was easy to use, lightweight which made it easy to handle for one woman and quick to install. I used an air stapler and laid all 10 sheets within 2 hours. Two of the sheets needed to be cut to fit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hardwired56 Very good quality underlayment-some good enough for finish cabinetry but watch the price
Very consistent quality with no voids. Used 70+ sheets on my last job to fix the floors in a rental home so we could install new floors. The price jump in < 3 month is outta this world. Paid $9 sheet for the first 30 and now it's $12.47 at a HD 5 miles away. My local HD has it priced at $14.47! It pays to shop around your area HDs as prices do vary.
Personally, I glue and screw the stuff down to make the floors as solid as possible. At the minimum, use ring shank nails to keep them from working up especially if you are going to lay laminate over it. We have used it to make very good looking utility cabinets-with a little stain and polyurethane the panels have a very good appearance.
I'm a bit confused about the wood substitute part...this stuff is wood but there is no indication anywhere as to what species it is. None that I have bought has been mahogany; the traditional material for luan panels. It is very moisture resistant and works very well in damp locations (use rust resistant fasteners and an adhesive for best results)
These panels are imported unfortunately. The last batch came from Ecuador and Chile, nothing from China yet. No offensive fumes/out-gassing. My wife can handle the panels easily as they are very light. You would be hard pressed to find a better choice for underlayment or projects. Hope this helps and of course, your mileage may vary!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KrisAnn great for a roof for pet enclosures
This was a great idea to make a roof for my outside cat enclosure. and the guys cut it for free to my measurements. I painted it and it looks great. It is very stable and durable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MattB A Bargain!!
This is outstanding underlayment. I am using it under a peel and stick vinyl tile and it is working great. Better quality and less voids then luann costing almost twice as much. Glued and stapled down with a air stapler over a really BAD and old hardwood floor.
