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.

Review 2 for 14 sq. ft. Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks (3-Pack)
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.
Cons: Difficult to Install, cheap appearance

Review 4 for 14 sq. ft. Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks (3-Pack)
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.
Cons: Difficult to Use, Inconsistent, Difficult to Install

Review 5 for 14 sq. ft. Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks (3-Pack)
I had my bathroom remodeled about a year ago. The product comes in narrow sheets and makes it easier to install. Since they are 96" tall, my contractor just cut them in half to make tjhe height 48". Just added trim on top and Coronado baseboard. Just had to paint with semi-gloss. The MDF is moisture resistant also and does not warp like wood.

Review 6 for 14 sq. ft. Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks (3-Pack)
We installed this planking in our family room and it looks great. It was pretty simple to install, we used the moulding that goes with it and the planks fit into the pre cut groove. It's pre primed so was very easy to paint, only needed one coat! The only problem I had was I had to go to two Home Depot stores to get enough planks for my project.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Stylish, Seals Well

Review 7 for 14 sq. ft. Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks (3-Pack)
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.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Seals Well, Good Shape
