Another thing that is for sure is the money you will save by going faux.  All that is required to install them are a few standard tools, either caulk or glue, and a little willpower.  The faux wall paneling itself is super affordable thanks to the material it is made of.  Each of our faux wall panels at Faux Direct is made from a high quality polyurethane foam.  Polyurethane is versatile in that it can be formed to whatever it is cast from.  Because of this, each panel looks and feels exactly like the real deal, including all of the same grooves and textures.  No one will be able to tell that your ‘brick’, ‘stone’, or ‘wood’ isn’t even real because of how authentic the polyurethane is, and  you will save money in the long run.

What else is for sure?  How resilient and long lasting your faux wall panels are!  Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material.  This means that no moisture can penetrate its surface.  Because of that, it is very resistant to mold, mildew, and rot.  You will not have to worry, especially when using wood, about protecting it from every drop of moisture in order to keep them in tact.  They are even designed to withstand the effects of weather, both hot and cold.  No need to fret if you want to place them outdoors!  They are also UV resistant so they will not be damaged by the sun.  No need to worry about cracking or chipping like you would with authentic stone or brick, because the polyurethane is very resistant to that.  Lastly, we have fire rated options available should you choose to place them around a heat source such as a fireplace or stove!
