Preparation

Do I need to acclimate Stikwood?

Yes! 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 often shorter . We recommend a time frame of about 48-72 hours.

What do I need to do to prepare my wall for Stikwood?

You wall needs to be primed/painted (doesn't need to be newly painted though), have all nails, dirt and grease removed and just prior to installation you want to wipe the wall with a clean, dry rag to remove any dust (or vacuum it!). You should also remove any outlet covers.

INSTALLATION

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.

How do I cut Stikwood? Is it easy?

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.

How long will it stik?

Stikwood will stick until you decide to remodel again. The adhesive is rated for 10 years.

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!

It's not absolutely necessary to seal Stikwood when it's used as a backsplash. If you are concerned about water exposure, we can offer an add-on product called Splash Safe for $2.00 extra per square foot. This features commercial grade sealant applied to the front side of the planks for added durability.

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.

Can apply it to a fireplace surround or breast 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!

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.

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.

Can I put it outside? What if I don't 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.

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.

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.

Can I hang pictures and paintings on a Stikwooded wall?

The wood takes on the strength of what you stick it to, so things like picture hangers and thumbtacks work great in stikwood and the underlying wall. For larger items like shelves, they should be hung like they would be on a wall without stikwood - the screws should fasten toa stud within the wall.

Can I paint or seal Stikwood?

Yes - you can apply paint and sealer to stikwood. We do offer a Splash Safe Polyurethane sealer option on most products. Make sure to test it on a small spare piece so you know you like the finished look.
