How do you attach studs to paneling?

Use panel adhesive and at the top and bottom of the panel, the area covered by molding and/or trim use screws. Mark the location of the studs using a stud finder or with a nail and a hammer. Mark the stud locations on the floor using tape if the floor is finished.

Keeping this in view, how do you attach paneling?

Secure the paneling to the wall with panel adhesive and finishing nails. Load a caulking gun with a tube of panel adhesive and apply a small dab of it on the wall about every 10 inches. Place the panel on the wall and press it into the adhesive. Pull the panel away from the wall and let the adhesive become tacky.

Beside above, can you put up paneling without drywall? The issue of placing paneling only over studs of less than 1/4" does require a drywall. This is due to fire codes. In the event of a fire, paneling will go burn like crazy and the lack of a drywall backer and/or fireblocking is a major issue. SAFETY FIRST!

Then, what kind of nails do you use for paneling?

Panel board nails, sometimes referred to as panel pins or paneling nails, are thin, 16.5 gauge nails used to attach panel board to the wood furring or studs underneath.

How do you hide paneling seams?

To prevent the drywall from showing through the seams in the paneling:

  1. Mark the paneling seam with a pencil.
  2. Move the sheet of paneling out of the way.
  3. Spray black spray paint on the seam along the pencil line.
  4. Install the paneling on the wall.
