Selling Wood Panelling

I have tongue and groove wood panelling all voer my basement walls. I was wondering if anyone knew if a contractor would want to remove the panelling and pay me for it?
in otehr words does it have any value?
I would prefer the sheetrock any.

Very very doubtful, unless it is very old thick wood, or some fancy species. Even then, much would depend on condition.

You might not even need to take it down..sheet rock might be able to go right over it. That would depend on more factors than I have knowledge of, but I know it's been done in upper levels of homes.

Are they planks installed vertically? Or are they actual panels? What type wood? How are they fastened to the wall? Like GG, I am doubtful anyone would pay you for the wood. But it would have to come down in order to make the installation of the sheetrock easier. Window and door jamb extensions, electrical box protrusion all have to be taken into account when layering a wall. It can be done, just alot of work.
