As you know, we have been functioning challenging installing a bathroom in our basement, it has been rather the undertaking. The pine planks are 3 9/16″ wide x five/16″ thick x 8′ lengthy, and are located in the trim/paneling section of Lowe’s They come in a package of six planks, for a total of 14 sq. ft per package. In addition to conventional beadboard, built from single tongue and groove boards, larger manufactured, beadboard-patterned panels are utilized to produce a beadboard-appearing finishes.

Kevin’s in there waiting for me to come help him put up some much more planks as I variety.
Tongue and groove ceiling planks are normally attached directly to an existing ceiling utilizing clips and screws. Recall that individual boards of your beadboard ceiling will expand and contract seasonally exposing additional or much less of the tongue and groove seems in between boards. We started the initial row by putting the tongue side of the board against the wall and completed the initial row, then staggered the seams on every subsequent row. They are very lightweight so they are best for overhead installation, and they are a tongue and groove.
Manufactured exterior grade beadboard planks and paneling that could carry out superior. When ordering beaded ceiling boards, order boards extended enough to steer clear of lengthwise seams. Again, beadboard ceiling constructed making use of 3/4″ x 4″ beaded pine tongue and groove boards painted white. To tighten the boards prior to nailing, use a scrap piece of the tongue and groove board as a tapping block and firmly pound on it with a hammer. We nail them along the back edge only so that it is simpler to click the next row of planks into the tongue on the previously installed row.
Here is the ugly popcorn ceiling just before we started, displaying our grid lines, marking where the ceiling joists are. You can speed up your beadboard install by possessing your material finished prior to installing it. I primed all six sides of the material prior to installing it. This is specially essential if you program to paint the beadboard ceiling after the set up. Tapping the boards not only tightens the tongue and groove joint, but tightens the nails of the boards already installed. The beadboard ceiling boards ought to be installed perpendicular (oriented at a 90-degree angle) to the joists.
Pre-finishing tongue and groove boards are also beneficial in stopping the boards from showing unfinished tongue and groove surfaces if boards expand and contract with seasonal modifications in humidity. Ceiling joist spacing tends to differ between 12″ and 24″ based on the joists and the span distance of the joists. We are undertaking all of the renovations ourselves, so I have no thought what it would cost to have someone eliminate a popcorn ceiling.
