Paneling is a quick and easy way to update your home, office or business. This affordable yet durable material comes in so many designs, colors, textures and styles, it’s no wonder it’s growing in popularity. What’s even better is that you don’t have to pay a contractor thousands of dollars when you can install it yourself, even if you’ve never installed paneling before. However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t encounter some challenges. Instead of getting frustrated, read on for some of the most common installation problems with paneling.
Your Paneling Is Beginning to Bow
Worried Your Paneling Won’t Stick? Here’s What to Do
First, make sure that you are applying your paneling to a clean, dust-free surface. Make sure that all contaminants are removed. You can do this by wiping your surface with a damp cloth. For extra-stubborn spots, you can use a mild soap to fully clean the area. Let completely dry before installation.
Next, you want to make sure that you use a high-quality adhesive. PL Premium is a product we recommend for installation. Liquid Nail or similar adhesives are not recommended for proper installation. It’s important that you hold the panel in place until the adhesive cures to ensure bonding. Prepping and using the correct adhesive are two easy ways to make sure your paneling is installed securely.
