Most of the panels are unusable due to holes along the tongue, groove or middle of the panel. Panels cup as soon as they are removed from package. Pieces are almost impossible to join. Tried installing for a customer but gave up after 1/2 hour of trying to join planks together. tongues or grooves would crack. wound up using another product. Had to absorb the cost of the panels.
Cons: Difficult to Install, most panels unusable, hard to join together, panels cup

Review 2 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
More than half of the product in each 6-pack was damaged or unusable. Most common was the grove side damaged or broken, warped and very hard to line up the tongue into the grove. If your going to install this on a wall longer than 10ft, plan to take a lot of pieces back to the store or plan to cut off the back side of the grove and install like shiplap. Product is nice looking once installed but the installation process is incredibly time consuming.
Pros: Stylish, Light Weight
Cons: Difficult to Install

Review 3 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
The cedar planks were very easy to install. They kept their shape and V notch was not broken; as the pine planks I have also installed. The cedar planks looked and smelled great. I used the Behr clear coating for cedar. A fun project to do for the weekend. Enjoy!

Review 5 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
the package i grabbed looked like it had already been opened. A few of the tongues were broken before I left the store. I had a hard time lining up the tongues and grooves, which isnt surprising considering each is less than 1/8". I had a few tongues snap off. All this aside, the wood itself is quite nice for the price. I only used it for a small spot. If I were to do a whole room, I'd contemplate cutting off the bottom groove and using it more like shiplap.
Pros: Vibrant Color, Stylish, Light Weight

Review 8 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
We used these planks for lining the back of an old entertainment center we were repurposing as an armoire. After removing the cabinet's original plywood back we cut the planks to length and nailed them at the top, bottom and center shelf edges as well as the side edges. Directions for using the planks as wall paneling were included, as well as information on sealing the wood but we left ours unfinished for the moth-repelling cedar scent. Now I have the perfect freestanding cedar closet for storing the woolens I use in crafting handmade rugs.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Straight, High Quality, Light Weight
