Beadboard is a series of boards nailed together . The term”beadboard” comes out of a series of lumps and vertical lines which form the profile of the plank. When a succession of beadboards are placed together side by side, they eventually become beadboard”wainscoting.” Staircase beadboard is used to add beauty and charm to any stairs. If you’re remodeling an older home for resale or want to dress up your home, you can install beadboard working with a few tools.
Measure up from the stair tread 34 1/2 inches and make a mark. Measure up from the bottom stair tread 34 1/2 inches and make a mark.
Tap on a nail into the wall in the base mark. Hook a chalk line and stretch it tight into the very best mark. Snap the chalk line to make a line on the wall. Here is the very best angle of the beadboard. Staircases are approximately 30 degrees. The miter saw angle will probably be within a few degrees of this.
Stand a part of breadboard vertically. Move the angle and the line on the wall’s elevation into the beadboard. Put the beadboard and put the angle of the miter saw to the angle on the beadboard. Turn on the saw and cut the angle on the beadboard.
Stand the beadboard in place on the measure. Examine the alignment of the angle along with the fit. Use a small level to ensure the beadboard is perfectly perpendicular. If needed, recut and readjust so the angle is aligned with the chalk line and vertical.
Run a bead of construction adhesive along the rear of the beadboard. Put it on the wall and check it for alignment. Take three pin nails dispersed through it, when correct.
Put another piece of beadboard in place locking the tongue into the groove on the opposite from one. Mark the place where the angle begins on the piece. Put it. Using precisely the angle, cut on the piece of beadboard on the mark.
Run a bead of construction adhesive on the rear of the beadboard. Run a light bead of glue inside the groove on the one you installed. Tap on both boards locking the tongue.
Shoot 1 pin nail through underside and the top of the tongue on the piece. It’ll be from the side on the other hand. Shoot the pin nail through at a 30-degree angle so that if the piece of beadboard is set up, the groove matches over the place where you fired the claws .
As you proceed up the staircase, installing every piece till you get to the top, as you did the first two and gluing each piece cuts in series.
Put a piece of 1/2-inch cap on top of the angled line of the beadboard wainscoting. The cap includes a dado on the back that fits over the beadboard. Run a bead of construction sealant inside the dado. Set on the cap and take 1 1/2-inch down pin nails through the top of the cap, into the tops of the beadboard. Space the nails every 16 inches. Use a putty crayon to fill the holes.
