Fitting Wall Cladding Myself

The 8 Step Expert guide to DIY Installation of Hygienic Wall Cladding

1. Wall Preparation
The wall substrate must be dry and free from any dirt, dust and grease. Walls should be flat and even. Flatten high spots and fill in low spots. Remove wallpaper, soluble or loose paint and other foreign matter that would interfere with a good adhesive bond.

2. Concrete Block & Brick
Level uneven surfaces with plaster or concrete compounds. Use adhesive. Adhesive cannot be expected to adhere 100%.

3. Special Wall Conditions and High Humidity Rooms
Be sure concrete walls are well cured and completely dry. If concrete or brick walls are below grade or where moisture can penetrate and interfere with a good adhesive bond, use furring strips and install with mechanical fasteners.

4. Painted Surfaces
All loose paint must be removed. Adhesive will bond only to the paint, so make sure that paint is well adhered to wall. It may be necessary to use fasteners as well as adhesive to provide adequate bond strength.

5. Uneven Surfaces
PVC Wall Panelling Installation over uneven surfaces will result in less than 100% adhesion to the wall substrate, therefore creating the potential for air pockets to form behind the panels. This will not compromise the Sani Clad wall panelling, provided the recommended spacing and sealing procedures have been followed.

6. High/Low Temperature Conditions
Follow guidelines for expansion/contraction allowance carefully. Make sure adhesive is recommended for use under these conditions. Follow adhesive manufacturers Installation recommendations carefully.

7. Applying Adhesive
Follow all the adhesive manufacturer’s recommendations for appropriate height of adhesive bead left by trowel. The biggest problem encountered with adhesives installations is too much or too little adhesive. Make sure adhesive extends to all edges of the panel.

8. Attaching to Wall Panels
Always start installation with the bottom profile: J-Connector or Floor Wall Cover. Start at a corner. Draw a vertical line. The first panel should laid set precisely along a vertical line. Where several panels are used on a high wall, both vertical and horizontal lines should be used to assure alignment. Install one-piece corner profile. Apply silicone sealant in profile. Slide panel into profile and withdraw 3mm. This will provide the appropriate gap as recommended. Align with plumb line. If installing with adhesive, begin in top corner nearest profile and with laminate roller begin rolling down and out towards the edge without the profile.

Working your way across the panel, continue rolling down and out, away from the previously installed pvc wall panelling or initial profile to remove all trapped air. Install fastener as each panel is being put into place and before right hand profile is put on. This will help work out any air pockets and help ensure a flat installation.We are the U.K’s leading Hygienic Wall Cladding installers
