Installing wall and ceiling panelling

Wood panelling is available in several types and can be used in many different ways to give the room the desired feel and character. The panelling is normally installed onto some form of wood: directly onto the studs, a wallboard or battens. So the easiest and most efficient method is to use finish nails and a nail gun when you install wall and ceiling panelling. You can read more here about choosing the right tools and fastening materials, while getting some practical tips along the way.

Choosing the right nail gun when you install panelling

Firstly, the nail gun must be suitable for the length of finish nail you need. If you have a major project, it’s a good idea to use a pneumatic nail gun, which gives you extra power and efficiency. But this does mean of course that you will need a compressor. As an alternative, we recommend an electric nail gun with a power cord or battery.
