Wood Paneling FAQ
You have questions, we have the answers. Each wall paneling project is unique and requires special attention to details as well as in depth knowledge of everything from wood product specification to how it gets delivered. Let us help you navigate the choices and understand what to expect when it comes to realizing your vision.
See the full FAQ section including questions about Elmwood as well as ordering and shipping questions.
What is acclimation and why/how do I need to do it?
Acclimation is the process of allowing the wood to equalize humidity levels and conform to its new environment. This is an important step in the installation process and ensures the wood boards stay tight. We recommend separating all of the bundles and acclimating our wood products for 7 to 14 days depending on your space and based on the type of real wood you are acclimating to. It is important that all “wet work” such as drywalling and mudding be fully complete and that there will be no additional moisture added to the space before acclimation and installation. It is also advisable to have the HVAC system up and running to ensure that the space is at normal humidity levels.
How much extra material should I plan on ordering?
This can be a tricky question depending on your space and how you plan on installing the wood wall panels. For a normal installation where the material is running parallel to the walls we would typically advise you to order at least 7 to 10 percent extra overage for cutting and fitting. If you plan on installing in an angled layout you will want to add more material as the cuts will add up and you will have more waste. We also do recommend having some extra material as “attic stock” in case the wood wall planks get damaged for any reason.
What are actual vs nominal face widths?
Similar to going to a lumberyard, a 2 x 4 is not actually a 2 inch by 4 inch dimension, our wood paneling is specified in full inch increments. The actual face width will be 1/2″ less after milling, so for example, a 7″ plank will have a face width of 6 1/2″. We will always do the calculations for you, so, you will end up receiving the correct square footage.
How to clean wood paneling?
Wood wall paneling that is left unfinished can be dusted and cleaned with a vacuum hose attachment. Prefinished wood wall paneling can be dusted the same way or also with a microfiber towel that will collect the dust on the wall.
Random widths vs single plank widths, what should I know?
Single plank widths can be challenging to produce in certain products and depend on available wood stocks. Imagine making a 5″ product and our stock is 5″, 6″, 7″ and 8″ planks, we will have to create substantial waste and rip the wider planks down to achieve enough of the 5″ width to complete the order, this adds cost and does not make the most of the value available for these resources, not to mention not being as environmentally friendly. While we are happy to accommodate your order there is added cost in doing so. Random widths help us to maximize the wood and are typically more cost effective, while, at the same time creating a very natural look and feel. Most of our orders are placed in a random width pattern for these reasons. When ordering random width material you will want to install in a truly random pattern, as you will not receive exact lineal footage of each width. We do however ensure that you will receive enough of each width to achieve a natural looking product.
Can Elmwood provide a Class A, non-combustible finish (ASTM E-84)?
Yes, we provide material to commercial projects regularly, and, in many cases, this is a requirement. The main product we use penetrates deep into the wood and gives a class A rating. While it can slightly darken the color of the wood in most cases there is no visual difference.
What colors go with wood paneling?
Wood wall paneling is a versatile product that can fit in with just about any design style and color pallet. The wood walls tend to be an accent for many spaces and play well with soft and bold color tones.
Can you stain wood paneling?
Yes, we offer our wood wall paneling in a wide range of stain colors and also have the ability to custom craft an exact color for your project with our bespoke program.
What types of finish can be ordered on a pre finished product?
Depending on the product ordered we have several different options for finish. For a more complete resource on finishing our wood products please visit our finishing page.
What is Bespoke paneling and how does it work?
We have a wide range of textures and colors that make up our flooring collections, but we know that some projects have specific needs that fall outside of this box. This is where our Bespoke program comes into custom tailors a product that is specific to your project needs and design vision.
How much does wood paneling cost?
Wood paneling has a wide price spread that depends on the width, length, thickness, species, and finishes that are applied. The range on paneling here at Elmwood is from $7-$15 per square foot.
