Frequently Asked Questions
Is this real reclaimed wood?
YES! All of the wood used for our reclaimed wood planks has been saved from going to the landfill. The wood used for the planks has already lived a long hard life and now is getting a second chance at being beautiful again! We source all of our wood locally in the state of Oklahoma.
How can I cut the planks?
For best results use a miter saw or chop saw, you can use a simple handsaw with a miter box as well, which you can purchase for around $10-$15 at any hardware store or online.
Are the Peel and Stick Planks Permanent? What if we want to remove them later on?
Yes, the adhesive strips we use are industrial strength and are considered permanent just like using a liquid construction adhesive. A solution some people use if they want to remove them later is to attach thin plywood veneer or hardboard (available at your local home improvement store) to the wall, then attach the peel and stick planks to the plywood.
What if my boards won’t stick?
In the proper application, your boards should have no problem sticking, however, if you notice a corner popping up or have a stubborn plank, it could be due to the surface not being completely clean or dry. No worries – just add a couple of small trim nails to hold it in place.
Do you offer some samples? Do you recommend trying the plank first?
Yes, we offer samples. Just send an email and we will send you a free sample. If you are unsure about the surface you are applying the planks to, we do recommend trying out the peel and stick planks on an inconspicuous area first to make sure the adhesive will work for your application.
Do I need to acclimate the wood before installing it?
We recommend 48-72 hours since wood changes in different environments and humidity levels.
Can I apply planks to the ceiling?
Yes! If your ceiling is relatively smooth you can use the peel and stick planks. You still may want to tack in a few trim nails for added strength. If you have a popcorn ceiling, we recommend using our “Nail Up” planks (without the adhesive) in combination with liquid construction adhesive.
Can I use the Peel and Stick Planks on a textured surface?
Our adhesive strips work best on a smooth surface. If you are unsure, we recommend trying a sample piece in an inconspicuous place, waiting a few days, and then checking the adhesion. You can choose to use our “Nail Up” planks on a rougher surface.
Can I use it around my fireplace?
In most cases, the planks can be used around a fireplace as long as they are not exposed to combustible materials. Each situation is unique so we recommend referring to your fireplace’s safety manual for instructions. We have many happy customers that have transformed their fireplaces using our reclaimed wood planks.
Can I order a custom amount if I don’t want to order one of the regular size boxes?
