Customer Questions & Answers

Can I used this panel like a door for the back yard.

Asked by: LaPrieta
Definitely not a door. But a 32 inch gate....sure! Just make sure you bring it inside if it's going to rain.

Is the MDF paintable ?

Asked by: Maggie
That's what MDF is for, is to paint.

can i use a different baseboard instead of the one included?
Asked by: james
I don't own this product but am a contractor, you do not have to use same trim that comes with it. You can install trim first and install bead board resting on top of molding, or the better way would be to install beadbord first all the way to the floor then install molding over top. When regular beadboard is installed we do not use grooved molding. We install molding over beadbaord and the chair moulding is either installed sitting on top of the beadboard or we use another peiece of trim to cap it.

Would it hold up well in a bathroom?

I live in a very humid place, and want something like this in my bathroom. Would this hold up?
Asked by: Beca
I live in South Florida and used it in my kitchen area. I coated them in 3 coats of paint to help "seal" the MDF to keep any moisture out. I would be skeptical to use these in the bathroom as it is MDF as it is in constant contact with humidity.

In comparing single 8ft wood panels versus this MDF paneling, I could buy 3 MDF kits for the price of 1 wood panel. The installation of the paneling is a little more time consuming, but it made it a little easier with having to work with the numerous outlets that I had along my walls. The paneling is MDF, so I am somewhat concerned with possible swelling due to moisture, with having 3 dogs and an active household, but I applied 3 coats of latex based paint to help prevent any problems with that. I used contact cement, which is probably overkill, on one section of panels. On the other wall of panels, we used finishing nails and silicone caulk. All the panels fit pretty good and there were no gaps in between each panel. I am going to purchase more kits to finish the rest of living room. Great product. Please excuse the mess in the picture, we are still remodeling the house/kitchen.

The primer was very smooth and easy to paint. I would recommend painting both sides as the panels do warp a little. I would definitely order this product again for another project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Inexpensive and adds a great look This product is a perfect addition to give a room a stylish look and depth. We've used it in our master bedroom and everyone remarks on it. It makes a difference and we love it! We didn't really need real wood wainscoting -- if we did we would've paid more and gotten real wood. This was much less expensive, easy enough for our hired handyman to install (he has the tools and the know how). It painted easily and is perfect where it is since there really won't be much traffic there. If I were to install bead board in our main hallway then I would definitely go with real hardwood since the purpose of wainscoting is actually to save walls that get high traffic and usage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I am not a carpenter, by any means, but I needed to finish my bathroom remodel on my own, due to a large unexpected expense. I wanted beadboard wainscoting, which is what I have in my kitchen, the real wood kind. Not being a carpenter and being afraid of sharp power tools, I first tried beadboard-look wallpaper. Despite the Amazon reviews which said it looked like the real thing, It Did Not. So, I looked around and found this MDF kit for a reasonable price, it took two kits for my tiny bathroom. I think the whole thing with baseboard and top rail was only 32 inches high, which left it hiding behind my radiator and looking dumb beside my vanity. So I made it taller by installing it further up the wall. I left in place the baseboard I had put in when the plan was wallpaper. I added a decorative bit of trim board to the top of that and then another decorative piece between that bottom layer and the bottom wainscot baseboard. With those modifications, I am pleased with how it turned out. It's MDF so it cut like butter with my Japanese pull saw. I used Loctite glue for paneling and a few strategically placed nails to hold it. I counter sunk the nails and filled in with spackle. Sometimes there would be a popping out of the MDF around the nail hole, so when that happened I sanded it down and touched up the paint, which I had to do after filling the nail hole anyway. The product comes primed, I painted it the color I wanted, front and back due to it being in a bathroom, a more moist environment. I have a little sanding a filling to do yet, which you can probably see in the photo I attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed modification Used this in a bathroom thus I primed the remaining sides/edges with an oil based primer (two coats), then final coat of latex white paint (two coats). This extended my project time by a bit but seemed to make sense. The modification was that the bath had a tile floor and about a 4" tile "splash guard" base along the wall. I could have just whacked off the tile "splash guard" but instead I took the top rail, and it worked (as well as looks) beautiful installed, right on top of the "splash guard" so it is now the bottom base for the panels. Next I took the bottom base and circular sawed off 1" from the bottom and ran the bottom thru a table router to dress it up and viola I now have top rail! Of course this also extended my install time but it was a great re-use of existing paid for product and it looks great, if I do say so myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy, but also annoying I like the way this comes as a kit. For me it was much easier. It is definitely easy to put the pieces in place. However, I found that not all the pieces are milled the same. Some are a little thicker than others. This makes the fact that they are panels show up a lot more. I ended up using white bathroom caulking between the panels to achieve a more finished look. This worked well, but is definitely time consuming. Also, not all pieces were completely flat, so I had to use more nails then I wanted to. I used finishing nails on the panels. My advice, don't. The nails caused the wood to pop out a bit. After painting, I had bubbles on the panels. After much and I mean much, sanding, they finally look halfway decent. If you are going to use nails, tape the panel first. I just used ordinary packing tape. I found that made all the difference. I used liquid nails on the chair rails with a couple of nails as well as the pieces, again, were not completely flat. My project isn't finished yet because I have had to do so much to make it look decent. For the rest I will use liquid nails. So while I would definitely recommend this product because it will look great when I finally do get it done, I do so with the above problems/recommendations.
