Asked
Questions

You’ve seen the gallery, you’ve imagined our products on your walls, but you want to know more before you take the plunge and commit to décor excellence. Will it work in your space? How do you measure? Where can you apply it? This is where you’ll find the answers to these questions and many more. It’s almost like we can read your mind.

1
Do I need to acclimate Stikwood?
Yes! Similar to wood flooring, acclimation is the first step you should take before installing Stikwood. The great part about the product is that it's thin, so the acclimation period is short. We recommend a time frame of about 48-72 hours.

3
How long will it stick?
Stikwood will stick until you decide to remodel again. The adhesive is rated for 10 years.
4
How do I clean the Reclaimed Weathered Wood?
A vacuum attachment can easily remove any dust.
5
How is Stikwood shipped?
Stikwood is shipped in boxes that contain 20 to 40 square feet.
6
What if I want to remove it?
Stikwood is semi-permanent. Meaning, if you choose to remove Stikwood you will need to pry it off of the wall. Once the planks are removed, the adhesive will need to be removed from the work surface and some minor repairs may need to be done as well.
7
Is it easy to cut?
Stikwood's thin planks make it easy to cut. You can use a mitre saw, chop saw or hand saw, but be sure to use a fine tooth blade with whichever saw you use.
8
Do you have issues with the adhesive not sticking?
If Stikwood is applied according to the recommended directions for application, then you shouldn't experience any issues with it not sticking to your surface.  However, if you are having issues, then it is likely one of a few things that could be causing it: 
  1. The area was still damp before Stikwood was applied
  2. The area was not totally clean before hand.
Note: In the off chance that you see any curling or have issues of it not sticking, you can simply apply a couple of small tack/pin nails and continue to enjoy your transformation!
9
How do I cut Stikwood?
For best results, you can use a miter box saw or a miter saw.
10
It's called Vertical Caramelized Bamboo, but I see that everyone has it horizontal. Does it matter?
Not at all. The description designates the way the bamboo is laminated onto the sheet. Strips are stacked vertically and pressed edgewise versus laid horizontally and pressed face-wise.
11
Will Stikwood really stick?
Yes! Stikwood's adhesive system is considered a semi-permanent interior wood solution.
12
How thick is the product?
Our reclaimed wood planks are 3/16" thick and our sustainable hardwood planks are 1/8" thick.
13
Is this wood or wallpaper?
Stikwood is crafted from 100% real sustainable and reclaimed wood planks that can be used to decorate your walls.

What's the width of Stikwood?

Is this real wood?
Yes! Stikwood is made out of 100% real wood planks.

We don't offer boxes in 5 square feet increments, but we do offer boxes in 10 square feet increments!
22
How many square feet do I need for my project?
By multiplying the length times the width of a wall (in feet, not inches), you can find the square footage of the area that you will need. You can also use the Stikwood online calculator if you're using inches.
Note: We recommend a 5% waste factor in your calculations when ordering.

Stikwood can be purchased directly from our website by visiting our products page.
27
How much do I need to order?
That depends, you need to calculate the size of the space you want to transform. Please note that our minimum purchase requirement is 10-square-feet.  
  1. You need to measure the height and width of your space in inches. 
  2. Multiply the two numbers. 
  3. Divide the sum by 144. We recommend ordering 5% extra for trimming. 
Note: We also offer a square footage calculator on the left-hand side of each product page. Look for the "Calculate Your Square Feet" button.
28
What can I Stikwood?
Stikwood will stick to any interior surface. The surface needs to be clean and smooth. If you'resticking Stikwoodto a wall that is not painted, you'll need to apply a coat of primer and let it dry completely.
29
Do I need to seal it if I use it as a backsplash? And what kind of sealant can I use?
It's not absolutely necessary to seal Stikwood when it's used as a backsplash. If you are concerned about water exposure, we can seal it during production for an additional $1.00 per sq. ft.
30
Will it work in my bathroom or near moisture?
It can work in a bathroom setting as long as you take the proper preparation steps before installing it. First, it's important to be sure that your wall doesn't exceed 9% moisture content before installing. If possible, let your walls dry out for a couple days before installing and again after installing. It's important that you allow the material to acclimate unwrapped and outside of the box for 48 hours in whatever environment you are installing it in. Be sure to also use a J-Roller during installation to ensure proper adhesion for each plank. 
31
Can I apply it to a fire place or near heat?
In most cases, Stikwood can safely be used around a code-approved fireplace as long as the surface you're applying the Stikwood to is not exposed to combustible materials. Each situation is unique, so it is important that you consult your fireplace's installation and safety manual before applying, to assure the area you are using Stikwood is considered a safe surface. We have had many customers use Stikwood to transform their fireplace with great success!
32
Are there options for temporary uses?
We are currently testing a new adhesive that is designed for temporary uses. In the meantime, we recommend nailing/screwing a thin piece of primed and/or painted plywood to the desired surface, and applying Stikwood directly to the plywood.
33
Can it be applied to a textured surface?
Some textured surfaces will adhere to the Stikwood products with ease, while others (that are less smooth) may have issues achieving maximum bonding. We recommend sanding the texture down if it is too textured. Once it is sanded, clean the area of dust/debris, then apply the Stikwood to the smooth surface. 
34
Can I put it outside? What if I do not use the adhesive?
Stikwood is not designed for outdoor use. Without the adhesive, professionals (who are knowledgeable regarding the properties of real wood products) have used Stikwood in some outdoor applications. Stikwood is recommended as a semi-permanent interior wall-decor.
35
Can you put this product on a door?
Yes, Stikwood can go on a door or cabinet with ease. Make sure to use a J-Roller to ensure maximum bonding between the surface and the adhesive.
36
Can I apply this to a ceiling?
Yes, Stikwood can be used on ceilings, and it often is! If your ceiling is smooth, you can apply it normally. With that said, if you have a ceiling that's too rough, such as a popcorn textured ceiling, then the ceiling should be sanded first. If you're not sure whether or not your ceiling needs to be sanded, try a sample piece as a test and/or send our support team a photo.
37
Commercial/Retail space, will it work?
Absolutely! In fact, Stikwood is ideal for commercial and retail spaces, because the work can be done within a matter of hours with minimal hardware. Plus, there are no VOCs, so you can transform a space without interfering with your customer's experience.
