Step By Step Instructions
For ease of installation, unwind cork, pre-cut – invert pieces & place weight(s) to flatten. Be sure wall is clean, dry and that the existing surface is secure.
The cork can be trimmed with a utility knife, carpet or linoleum blade. It may require more than one pass.
We recommend Henry Brand #356 or #176 applied with a v-notched trowel. Apply 100% adhesive coverage to the wall surface.
4 ) Installation:
After careful application of adhesive, lightly position the cork sheet*, and press firmly in place (rolling is recommended). Use brads/headless nails in all corners and areas that may not adhere.
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.
6) The perfect wall:
Cork wall covering does not show scratches, dents or nail holes. Ideal pin-up area. Absorbs unwanted noises. Easy to maintain. Use fine sandpaper to remove any unwanted marks.
