I've used a lot of it but it does have a downside. It nicks and tears up easy when you hit it with a mower or something. Also the ends and around nicks and tears and nail holes will absorb water and deterioate over time. Have also had some swell (probably for water) at the lap joints and then want to pop the nails after a number of years. Other than that is is cheap siding which I use for sheds and dog houses. You need to keep it painted good.
