We are pleased that you selected our family of products for your project.  Now that you have your planks, you may be wondering what’s next. We have included this guide to help you determine the materials you will need, as well as a general sequence to follow. Don’t worry it isn’t difficult!  A basic knowledge of tools and a general idea how you want it to look is all that is required.

  • First, unpack all your boxes lay out your planks in an area close to the project. Since no two planks are alike, this preplanning will ensure good color variation across your project as you install.

  • Next, make sure your surface is clean and smooth.  Remove any rough spots with sandpaper or a scraper.  Clean the surface using any mild dish washing detergent in warm water and make sure it is dry and dust free.

  • Next, it’s a good idea to mark a level line to ensure your first row stays level as you begin your project.  For larger applications, we recommend marking a line in the middle of the area and work out in both directions.

  • You are ready to begin installing your planks! Simply remove the adhesive strip cover along the back and begin. Align one end of the plank and slowly press the plank to the wall moving toward the other end of the plank.  Work back across the plank, firmly pressing the plank to the wall to insure the best adhesion. Caution, the adhesive on the back of your plank is semi-permanent and will not easily release from your surface.  Removing mis-aligned planks may cause damage to your surface.

  • Cutting the planks is easy.  Measure your cut and mark your plank.  Always use a stable cutting surface and make your cut before removing the cover from the adhesive strip.  Using a square and a sharp blade, make cut about one third of way thru the face of the plank.  Simply snap the plank at that cut and trim the adhesive strips. Tip: Test fit your cut piece before removing the cover from the adhesive.

  • You will have to trim the planks at the end of each row and around any opening or outlet. The planks are rigid enough be cut with a table saw and soft enough to be trimmed with a utility blade. We recommend the use of a jig saw or key hole saw for cutting around outlets and switches. Please use caution while cutting!

  • Your finished product can be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any dust. For more helpful info go to the FAQ page.
