Neatmatch - Installing on an uneven wall
To Uneven Walls
This collection of pictures shows
the batten method of fixing Neatmatch wall panelling to an
uneven surface. In this instance the surface was uneven brickwork.
The wall which must be
covered with Neatmatch is face painted brickwork from the
Wooden battens (40x15mm) about
450mm apart are screwed to the wall.
and extended round the corner.
Neatmatch sheets are measured –
measure twice and cut once!
And cut with a panel saw, which
is better than a jig-saw for straight cuts.
The first sheet must be vertical,
because it is the guide for all subsequent sheets.
Each sheet is secured to the battens
with wood screws. All sheets should be separated by approximately
1mm to allow them to expand.
Why not make a template with an
off-cut to guide you in a difficult zone…
to achieve this result.
The gaps between the sheets of
Neatmatch should be filled with a flexible filler before you
start to paint.
And close up.
