Hereof, what kind of beadboard do you use for ceilings?
Pine is the most commonly used material in the creation of beadboard planks, which are approximately 5/16” thick, 3 ½” wide, and available in eight-foot lengths, such as these Hakwood Knotty Pine Beaded Planks (available from The Home Depot).
Likewise, can you use flooring on the ceiling? Although you won't need to worry about constructing a subfloor, wood floor ceilings still require support. Contractors can install wood flooring planks over a flat drywall ceiling in good condition. Wood flooring planks can also be installed on an exposed ceiling.
Similarly, you may ask, are beadboard ceilings expensive?
Installing a beadboard ceiling can provide you with a nice option for the ceiling in any room. It's available in a variety of colors and finishes. Beadboard is also one of the least expensive materials that you can install on a ceiling. You can usually find it for $1 to $2 per square foot at a lumber yard.
How do you cover beadboard seams?
- Fill the seam joint with wood putty.
- Sand the covered joint with 220 grit sandpaper.
- Wipe down the seam with tack cloth to remove the dust created by the sanding.
- Refill the joint until the dried putty is even with the adjoining pieces of beadboard.
