Re: Wood panel wall problem
Seasonal wood expansion and contraction is primarily across the grain with very little length wise. If you install thin strips of wood across the paneling and attach the faux tin panels to them you should have no problems if you first pre-drill the strips with holes a little larger than the shank of the headed nail or screw you use. Do not over tighten the screw or nail, fasten one end of the strip firmly.That way the paneling can expand and contract and the nail or screw has enough play to move with the paneling while the strips stay in place.
