INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR VINYL WAINSCOTING
“Perfect Finish” Ready-to-Install PVC/Cellular Composite Wainscot * NO PAINTING REQUIRED!
Its made from high strength PVC materials. This material works like wood: cuts, glues or nails. However it will not splinter or crack and has no knots. This product has a lifetime warranty on rot. The product is for interior use only.
Tools: Mitre Saw or Hand Saw, Hammer, Level, Square, Caulking Gun, Tape Measure, Pencil
[image 1 ]
Panel Adhesive (PL Premium or No More Nails Tub Surround), 1’’ finishing nails or brad nails (Optional)Installation Tips
Use a quality panel adhesive and follow manufacture’s instructions. When tapping panels into each otheruse a wood block or end cut of one of the panels. Do NOT use the hammer directly on the panel or butt panels too tighly. Allow for normal expansion and contraction (1/32").
For better holding strength angle all nails and drive nails leaving 1/8” above surface and finish using a nailset. When possible nail into moulding groove. This avoids surface damages. For cleaner cut, saw into the finished surface.
When you approach an outlet, turn off the power. Take careful measurements of the outlet location and cut out the opening.
Installation: Base Trim
Measure your wall, if your wall is longer than 8’ pre-mitre the joining end with the next piece of base board you will be using.

Make certain the Base Trim has the pre-grooved end up before glueing or nailing. Apply glue in a zig-zag pattern on back of Base Trim and apply to wall. Make sure Base Trim pieces align on the wall

The correct installation of the first panel board is the key to an easy and successful installation.
Begin at the left most corner of your installation (opposite if you are left-handed). Each panel is tongue and grooved for a uniform fit and easy installation. Determine which side you want to enhance your room beaded or smooth. Keep the groove edge towards the starting corner. Using a level make sure the first panel is absolutly square. When necessary, scribe and remove material from the panel from the groove
side (inside corner).

Next, determine the height you want for your wainscot and cut only if necessary.

Do not force fit pieces together. Apply glue on back side of panel place into groove on Base Trim and position into corner.

(Optional) Nailing the top, middle and bottom tongue every 16” will ensure better adhesion.Carefully measure and fit next panels. The last panel may also need to be trimmed to fit into the corner.
Installation: Chair Rail
Make sure that all panels are correctly installed.Measure your wall, if your wall is longer than 8’ pre-mitre the joining end with the next piece of Chair Rail you will be using.
[image 7 ] Make certain the Chair Rail has the pre-grooved end down before glueing or nailing.

Cleaning your Vinyl Millwork with a damp cloth makes it look like new.
John GuerriereApr 1, 2022, 03:38 PMThough it's been 6 months since I purchased the Elite Trimworks vinyl beadboard kits, it's only just now that they've been installed in my newly remodeled master bath.__________
All 3 kits arrived in perfect condition. The color was uniform throughout the separate kits, and the finish is a beautiful satin - not overly shiny. The shade of white was just right for us, not a glaring white at all. So, goodbye painting!__________
The panels and trim installed perfectly using a quality construction adhesive, and tiny air-driven nails along edges where they're forever hidden. I wish I could add photos here to show how ingeniously my installer figured out a beautiful way to end the beadboard at an outside corner, using exterior solid vinyl brick mold for door trim!__________
The kits have changed since my purchase. A person with a very discerning eye can tell that my beadboard planks are thicker on the outer edges than in the middle. That causes a very minor undulation as you look down a wall. You can see it best when you look down at the baseboard piece, where the gap increases and decreases repeatedly along the wall.__________
It's actually very minor, and I assume the newest design now being offered has eliminated that issue. Overall, my wife ad I are quite satisfied, and recommend the Elite Trimworks vinyl beadboard kits which, surprisingly, have actually gone DOWN in price!!
