1.) Attaching Accessories
Windsor Faux Panels® are designed to work with accessory pieces. Accessory pieces make the job go smoother with professional results. With accessories, there are no exposed edges and no caulking required.
2.) Adding a Ledger
The Ledger Piece makes an ideal transition to other materials. In this application, the ledger will go directly over the top row tongue.
First, measure the total length of ledger required.
3.) Measure and Cut the Ledger
It is important to end both sides of the wall with finished ledger ends.
It is best to take the total length, and cut equal amounts from the center of the wall. This allows a tight union between the pieces and finished edges on each side.
Measure and cut each ledger for a center union. Cut each end square for a good fit.
4.) Attaching the Ledger to the Wall
Toe Screw the Ledger to the underlying Substrate, with screws placed minimum 16" apart.
Additional gluing is recommended. Before gluing, lightly sand the ledger gluing surface for better bonding.
5.) Fit and Transition
Interior applications do not require any flashing.
Transitional materials fit flush onto the ledger, covering the screws for a professional finish.
6.) Exterior Flashing
Exterior applications require flashing for moisture control.
The flashing covers the screw attachments for professional results.
