Brief History Of Wainscoting
Importance Of Professional Wainscoting Installation
Wainscoting is considered timeless if done correctly. And by correctly, we mean done professionally, by professionals like Houston Carpenters. There are many DIY tutorials out there demonstrating to adventurous homeowners how to handle this project. But there is more than meets the eye with this project. This is a project that can quickly spiral out of control without the proper tools and experience. We’ve come across plenty of half baked wainscoting ideas which quickly turn into rescue projects where wainscoting is applied to a dining room wall crooked, or the wall was a bit crooked to begin with and the wainscoting did not line up correctly, nails not being flush with the boards, hammer indentations in the bathroom wainscoting where the nails were hammered with the wrong type of hammer, the list goes on and on. All we are trying to say is Wainscoting can be absolutely beautiful and bring so much elegance to a room when done correctly.
