No preparation needed for the wall behind. Install them directly on, Sheetrock, wood or metal framing,

  1. Take the first panel and cut the "fingers" off the left side, to create a straight edge. Any wood cutting tool will do the job.
  2. Glue the back with affordable construction adhesive like Liquid Nails. Apply a few screws.
  3. From left to right, install the next panels until the last one will reach the end of the wall.
  4. Measure the remaining wall surface to cover and cut the panel on the right side accordingly.
  5. Repeat the above steps if you need more rows of panels to cover your wall.
  6. If you create a wainscoting simply use the Ledge Trim to cap the top of the panels.

DONE!
No grouting, sealing, cleaning or caulking needed. It's THAT easy.
