Can anyone identify this planking (Picture Included)


zap, Mr Hoadley's a idjit, that's obviously plastic.
Easiest way to tell them apart is with simple tool, a match. If it burns its wood, if it melts plastic. If it smolders, giving off toxic fumes composite.

Just reading through this thread. Couple thoughts I had, is wood and and trying to match it exactly may be almost impossible.
I use a similar product in interior use, it is 5/8" x 51/2" tongue and groove spruce.
I buy it from a real lumber store, they warned me last year.
Company they buy it from, updated their milling tools. Even though it looks the same, the old style will no longer interlock with the new, because of the tool change.

I would suspect that you may find something that looks the same, may not fit with the old.
You may need to remove some of the old and just use new in a isolated area as under the stairs.
Will be close enough that no one will notice.
You could spend hours and hours trying to get the exact same thing, how much is your time worth?

matt, its been a month now. We're all waiting, to the point where we're getting repetitious, to see if you matched it and what it is, or if you got a close match and swapped it out.

If the color on my computer screen is right it could be pumpkin pine especially if your home is older. If it is you would most likely have to find it at a salvage yard. Take the piece you have to a specialty lumber yard where they sell different types of hardwoods and show it to someone there. They should be able to tell you exactly what you have there.
