Frequently asked questions and answers

Wall covering

We advise you to start by checking that the walls where you are going to install the cladding are smooth, dry and level (if there is an unevenness, it should be corrected with leveling paste before installing the battens or with wedges in the battens themselves).

No. Think that it is a living element and has to acclimatize to the room where it will be placed. The material must be left in this room for at least 24 hours in a horizontal position and never in a vertical position.

They are low-cost square strips that are placed on the wall to fix the wall covering or frieze.

In each box you have the m2 they cover, calculate the square m2 you need and add at least 10% for trimmings.

It is not difficult, we advise you to drill the holes by placing the strip to the wall and drilling both at the same time; then fix it with screws that already incorporate the dowel and with a hammer are placed with a few blows and seconds.

This is one more advantage of this type of coating. You can place it horizontally, vertically, half-height or diagonally. Remember to always place the strip perpendicular to the frieze. That is to say, if you decide to place the frieze horizontally, the strip must be placed vertically, if you decide to place it vertically, the strip must be placed horizontally.

We recommend that you always start at the corner and with the female side (the side of the frieze with a tongue protruding from the uncoated material) towards the exposed side, i.e. towards where you are going to continue the fitting of the slats.

No, it is necessary to leave space for the dilatations, so it is necessary to leave between 1 and 3 cm of space on the floor and the same on the ceiling.

This first slat is the one that marks the good anchorage of the others, so you must level it very well and nail it at the hidden end from the surface (the nails will not be seen later, since they are hidden when the complementary moldings are placed). Leveling is achieved by driving a single nail, leveling and nailing the rest.

The planks are tongue and groove so that one part goes inside the previous plank and the female part, which is on the outside, is fixed to the strip with staples, nails or clips. We recommend clips because they allow expansion and do not damage the pieces, so that if we want to disassemble them in the future, they will not be damaged.

To do this you must remove the complementary moldings, having taken the precaution of installing with Clips will allow us to remove the slats from the opposite corner to the beginning without damaging the slats, replace the piece and reassemble from the point of replacement to that corner. Replace the complements.

We have at your disposal complementary moldings to be placed on top of these joints in the same design as your siding. First we have the baseboard for the lower part of the frieze, the cornice which is placed in the same way as the baseboard but on the upper part and then, depending on the corners, we have corner pieces and corner corners.

Take advantage of the fact that you are mounting battens to lay more cables and install more switches, sockets, light points, antenna points, etc… Drill holes with the hole saw to install or reposition these light points on the frieze.

With doors and windows is very simple, it is necessary to frame with battens all around.

We have one of the widest ranges on the market, if not the widest. You can give your home warmth, joy, sobriety, style, elegance and all this thanks to the different woods, textures, materials together with different widths and shapes of friezes.

There are different options to cover walls but with the frieze you get to cover any defects in walls, you get better insulation both thermally and acoustically your room and of course the decorative factor is very high.

Coated frieze is an alternative to solid wood. It is generally 50 to 70% less expensive than traditional solid wood. It is anti-allergic and does not accumulate dust mites. It is more resistant to discoloration caused by sunlight.

Another advantage over wood is that you don’t need to varnish or any other kind of maintenance, just routine cleaning.

No, on the contrary, it should be cleaned dry (slightly damp cloth) or with a vacuum cleaner.
