jskolnik,

The do-able is a firm board ...the Parkland plas-tek can be rolled up. As of two years ago and even more recently, there has been no do-able east of the Mississippi as far as I know. Obviously you are east of the Miss. but it isn't this far east (NY) yet. Two years ago I settled for the Parkland Plas-tek which is pretty good if you can't get do-able. In another posting of mine (and others) I listed the SKUs. Good luck with the do-able!

There always seems to be some Parkland plas-tek at the Loew's near me in Plant City, Fl.

Hawaii23,

The parkland is a different product than do-able. I bought the parkland (no do-able) anyway with some 5/8 mdf for a backer. Will build the screen and if not like will then cover in BO or Photo paper but seems fine.

I am thinking I should use the back side of the Parkland material for the screen instead of the front. The back seems much smoother. Hawaii23 can you comment on that?

Thanks,

You'll see postings here with it hung both ways. I use the rough side. I can't see much of a difference. On mine the smooth side has the sticker. However, I did cut a 7" strip off the end (to fit the screen on my wall) and from time to time have placed that smooth strip over the rough side I use as my screen and really don't see much of a difference so I have left the rough side as my screen. By the way, I have the plas-tex on top of my awful whiteboard (see earlier postings) for stability. I just use small curtain rod hangars (not the rods...but the kind of hangars/supports, whatever they're called, used for little curtains to hold a rod on the inside window of an outside door) into my wall and place the boards onto those. Simple. Just a tiny screw at the top of the boards (both corners) and into the wall to keep it from falling forward. Hardly noticeable. AND if you put a black border around the edges you would never see those screws (I did not bother with a border since my walls are dark.) I explain this a little better in my earlier postings 2 years ago. If you care, just search "hawaii23". Good luck with your set-up. If do-able ever comes around here I may look into that since everyone says it is the best for just hanging something cheap. :-) How is Chicago...miss it...spent 14 years there until '98.

Crescent City is about 10 miles from the CA/OR border. The Home Depot there has a variety of Do-Able.

Did the forum reset? I posted a link to the ClosetMaid Do-Able replacement at homedepot.com in this thread earlier today, and now the post is gone...
