Basically, this’ll be a one-stop shop for you to get all the faux wall paneling q’s you’ve ever had answered.
Grab a snack, kick your feet up, and get ready to be enlightened.
- Can faux wall panels be used outside?
Abso-freakin-lutely! Their ability to be used outdoors is probably what makes them one of the most versatile products on the market. All of our panels are :
This makes them an excellent choice for exterior paneling on the outside of a home, mobile home, mobile home skirting, outdoor shed, entry gate, business signs/marquees, fence posts, etc.
- Are your panels fire-rated?
This is an excellent question. No, not all of our panels are fire-rated. However, we have a decent amount of our panels that can be ordered in the fire-rated material. If it is an option, there will be an option to click the ’15% additional cost for fire-rated panel’ on the website page for that particular panel.
By selecting the fire-rated option, you are ordering a panel that looks exactly like the one photographed, however it will give you the ability to safely place it closer to a heat source. We still recommend a distance of around 10-12” from the actual heat source for your utmost safety.By ordering fire rated panels, you are able to use them surrounding a fireplace (indoors or out), behind a wood-burning stove, or even as a kitchen backsplash behind a stovetop.
- How big are your panels?
This is another excellent question. All of our panels vary by size based on their style. To find out the exact dimensions, simply scroll down to ‘Additional Information’ and you will find all possible specs on the panel with exact dimensions. This will give you an excellent idea of how many panels need to be ordered so you’re able to successfully complete your project.
- Can your panels get wet?
You betcha! Our panels are made from a material called polyurethane. Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material. This means no moisture can penetrate their surface. This makes faux wall paneling the ideal material for use in a bathroom, inside a shower, behind a bathtub or even outside around a pool! They are easily wiped down with a damp cloth, with no harsh chemicals necessary to get them clean.
- How do I install the panels?
Last but not least, many people want to know about installation. We’ve actually created an installation guide just for you. It is so basic, that any average Jane or Joe can complete it. All that’s required are a few standard tools, an adhesive, and simple caulking. Most people can get the job done in a single afternoon!
