Hello JM, thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Yes, the Engineered Cedar Shiplap Tongue and Groove Planking can be used in exterior applications. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.
What a good question, Kerri. After talking with our product expect, we were told, "It is not considered aromatic, but it is made from cedar, so there will be some cedar scent to it. But “aromatic” cedar is something different than this." So to answer your question further, your planking is not the cedar that is strongly scented as that scent and oil is from the wood of the eastern red cedar.
Hello Violetdaisies, This planking is knot-free, and has a clear, vertical grain.
Hi JP, We suggest that you contact your preferred Home Depot location to see about the 30 package "limit". Most likely, it's all that your store keeps in stock. If you made an order for 60, for example, Home Depot would do its best to accommodate you. Of course, you would need to do this over the phone or in-person as the system would not be able to go beyond its allotted number. Now to your question about the "engineered" shiplap. Think of the shiplap wood straight from the manufacturer as a value-added product; that is, you're not getting just wood. It's been specially sawed, routed to fit perfectly into its sister board, perhaps there are hidden fasteners, and a nice finish has been applied.
There are 6 boards included in your purchase; each board is 8’ long, 5.25” wide & 0.6875” thick. So based off the actual dimensions, each board offers 3.5 square feet of coverage. 3.5 square feet (per board) x 6 boards = 21 square feet. Your going to be able to cover 8’ long x 2’8” tall.
Hi there, this has a smooth finish. This information is found in the item specifications. We ask that you read over the product page to ensure this merchandise best fits your project needs. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!
