PVC Wainscoting Kits

We've assembled wainscoting kits of the most popular beadboard sizes. Each kit contains 8 running feet worth of beaded planking in addition to a wainscoting cap and wainscoting base. Not only does purchasing in kits facilitate the project planning... you'll even receive reduced shipping rates.

If your ceiling height is 8 or 9 feet, choose the nominal 30 inch kit; it is ideal for covering one-third of the wall height and closely matches the sink height in a standard bathroom. For half wall applications, choose the nominal 42 inch kit. This kit is generally high enough to go beyond the sink and provide for a backsplash area while remaining below the electrical outlets.

Have a claw tub? Consider the nominal 60 inch height to cover two-thirds of the wall; this height is also ideal for tub surrounds.

Click here to purchase beaded planks and moulding separately. You'll find 96 inch planks for full-wall applications as well as 22 inch planks for tub aprons and jacuzzi skirts.

 

Questions:

Question:

How well do the PVC wainscoting pieces cut with a chop or table saw? Any special considerations?

Answers:

  • PVC cuts very well with a chop saw or table saw. Consider a woodworking blade with a higher tooth count such as those sold for trim finish carpentry. Use blue painters tape on the face of the trimwork to prevent miniscule chipping when cutting high profile pieces. Avoid blades for plastic or metal.

Question:

Can these be installed over tile? If so, what's the best way to install and attach?

Answers:

  • We recommend a construction adhesive like ECO-BOND Heavy Duty (HD150) for its versatility, eco-friendliness and unsurpassed performance. It will bond PVC to tile without the need for scouring.
