No. The regular carbide blade will do.

Sawing Paneling

WHEN CUTTING A SHEET OF PANELING SHOULD THE PANELING BE FACE UP OR FACE DOWN.

What kind of saw are you using? Cut face up on a table saw and face down with a circular saw. You want the point of the teeth to cut the "good" side.

Whichever saw your using, put on a fine toothed blade.

My Two Cents

Hello: jsuper

A fine tooth blade will produce the best finish results. Cut only one end of the paneling. Allow the molding to be used to cover the cut end or side cut.

Be sure the panel being cut has good support beneath it. Helps to produce good cutting final results. As will as new blade specific for cutting paneling.

Blades can be obtained at the lumber yard where the paneling is purchased, any local hardware store or check in the diy store.
