Yep. Masonite. $16 for 16lf @ the big orange box.

I've seen it work if installed w/ the appropriate components, but ONLY if it is painted impeccably & maintained the same way. Once water absorbs down past the tempered finish, it swells, & goes bye bye.

I like MDF moldings, from an inspectors POV. I can see moisture problems real easy!
