Tips Placing Wood Siding Panels On The Wall
Wood Siding Panels – Installing wood panels is an effective and aesthetic way to cover minor imperfections and damages on the walls. Among the defects that cannot be covered are mold, moisture or severe deformation. Owners can place wood panels over existing plasterboard or over racks. There are two alternatives available: individual planks themselves or panel sheets that look like these. The latter come with a finish, while the planks may also require sanding and finishing. Remove all moldings from the walls.
Clamp the wood siding panels strips horizontally into the wall separated by 24 inches (60.96 cm). It begins in the sky and the floor, even if that means that some strips are less separation distance. Coating slats are thin pieces of wood that support the individual planks and prevent tension from being supported by the plate or plaster. Inspect well what you have done to see if there are spaces between the wall and the slats.
Cover the wooden wedges with glue and insert them into the holes. If necessary, hit them with the mallet to secure them. Put the first wood siding panels in the corner and place finish nails through it as well as the cladding strip, both on the right and left sides. If you are using planks that have a notch or guide, pass the nails through this, until you finish joining the plank to each liner.
