Pre-Finished Reversible Vinyl Planking/Wainscot is an innovative product made from
high-strength PVC composite. This product will not warp, corrode, or rot and will not develop
mold or mildew build up. Since this product is pre-finished in white, it does not require any
painting. However, if you would like to have it in a different color, you may also paint it. For
painting, wipe thoroughly with water or an appropriate cleaner, such as ProClean Professional
Prep Wash Concentrated Cleaner, to clean any dust or residue from the surface. Allow it to dry
completely before applying primer. Then apply two coats of enamel paint, such as Behr
Premium Plus Interior/Exterior Hi-Gloss Enamel or Glidden’s
Evermore™ Interior & Exterior Latex Enamel High-Gloss. Please use the
manufacturer’s dry times between coats.
Pre-Finished Reversible Planking
Available in two profiles. Perfect for interior and exterior use, such as
Sunroom, Kitchen, Bedroom, Garage, and Basement. Completely water resistant.
For easy installation, use Liquid
Nails or a similar quality panel adhesive. For better holding strength, use nails.
Angle all nails and drive nails within ¼” of the surface with hammer. Then tap
the board into place with a hammer and a wood block to protect the planking. For a better
square fit, slightly angle the tongue of the planking to the groove. Due to mild expansion
and contraction, do not press them against each other too tightly.
Step 2: Planking/Wainscot
Insert each piece into the groove of the base trim. Apply Liquid Nails or
a similar panel adhesive in a zigzag pattern before installing. For better holding strength,
use nails (see General). Each piece is tongued and grooved for a better fit
and simple application. Begin at an inside corner and work left to right if you are
right-handed, and right to left if you are left-handed. Keep the groove edge toward the
starting corner, and the tongue edges toward your work direction. Nailing top, bottom, and
every 16" to 32" will insure adhesive contact to the boards. Allow space between planking
for expansion and contraction. Measure and fit the next boards carefully. The last board may
have to be trimmed to fit into a corner.
Step 3: Chair Rail
To complete the job, make sure all planks have been applied to the base trim
correctly and check to see that the product is level against the wall. Then apply the chair rail
on top of the planks after measuring for the correct length. The chair rail is pre-grooved at
the bottom fitting over the planks. For additional strength, also use nails (see
General). Fill in any gaps with caulk or wood putty.
Regular cleaning of your planking with a damp cloth will leave it looking just like
new. If the product has been painted, make sure to follow the paint manufacturer’s
instructions for maintaining the finish.
