Installing the plank ceiling was almost certainly the easiest job in the Library I bought wide, tongue and groove, pine planks. Soon after going to Menard’s & Property Depot tonight and realizing how limited the choice is for tongue & groove 4″ X 8′ L lumber I got fairly a headache! I have a feeling my stomped ceilings will demand scraping to do away with the greater points and permit the planks to be uniform and flat. Use the project estimator to calculate the number of ceiling planks and accessories you’ll need to have. But not to worry, when the ceiling is finished, you do not see them at all, it will all appear extremely smooth. I then screw the stabilizing tongue and groove board to my saw horse using deck screws – just my way of carrying out it.
You can not see it standing on the floor, but when you happen to be on the leading of a ladder, up close and individual, seeking across the ceiling, you can see it. Which indicates your planks will probably have a tiny bit of waffle” in these identical spots. I discovered this product at Lowe’s and am going to do my daughter’s kitchen ceiling as it is TERRIBLE! Bostitch pneumatic finishing nailer and 16 gauge 2″ finishing nails utilized to blind nail the tongue and groove boards. Install the initially board tongue out with the groove side of the board facing the wall.
Seat the nail head so that it is flush or slightly countersunk with the tongue surface so that it does not interfere with the tongue and groove joint. Beadboard or beaded ceilings are designed utilizing wood tongue and groove boards assembled to create a paneled finish. After the ceiling joists are marked, measure and cut the tongue and groove beaded boards for set up.
To install tongue and groove boards appropriately, you will require to determine the direction and location of the ceiling joists. We’ll just locate the ceiling joists with a stud finder, mark them with chalk lines, and nail gun them into the joists. Planks can be installed using a new or current 15/16th suspended grid technique that’s been modified for WoodHaven. Despite the fact that genuine beadboard is constructed working with individual tongue and groove boards, these days beadboard surfaces can be created using a few various solutions.
When calculating the quantity of material to order, keep in mind that 4″ beaded tongue and groove boards provide only 3 1/2″ of a finished surface due to the tongue. We’ve removed all the popcorn ceiling in our renovating also, but have the master left to do. I’ve usually loved planked ceilings and we’ve talked about this as an solution when we get to the master. We did it a couple of days prior to this post was published (June 1) and they’ve nonetheless got a complete end cap full of ’em at our regional Lowes. If you do it your self the price is about $.97 to $1.50 per square foot.
