Tools & Materials Needed For A Professional Installation:

  • Sharp Utility Knife, Carpet or Linoleum Blade
  • Adhesive – recommended Henry Brand #356spacer or #176 (or comparable vinyl adhesive)
    • Carefully follow adhesive manufacturer installation instructions available online at:
  • 3/16” x 5/32” V-Notched Trowel
  • Hammer
  • Brads/Headless Nails

(All materials needed, including adhesive, available at True Value, Do It Best or your local hardware store)

Preparation: Be sure wall is clean, dry and that existing surface is secure.

Cutting: The cork can be trimmed with a utility knife, carpet or linoleum blade. It may require more than one pass.

Adhesive: We recommend Henry Brand #356 or #176 applied with a v-notched trowel. Apply 100% adhesive coverage to the wall surface being corked.

Installation: After careful application of adhesive, lightly position the cork sheet, and if correct press firmly in place (Rolling is recommended). Hammer brads/headless nails into all corners and areas that may not adhere.

Finishing: Cork is a wood product and can be stained, painted or varnished. We suggest you test on spare piece first. For the perfect built-in bulletin board, you may tack picture frame molding around the cork.

The perfect wall: A cork wall covering does not show scratches, dents or nail holes. Ideal pin-up area. Absorbs unwanted noises. You may use fine sandpaper to remove any unwanted marks. Our toll free number is 1.800.663.1921.
