A few tips:
- You will have small gaps here and there with the planks. To avoid those being noticeable, paint the surface you are nailing to black. One coat of paint will do the trick, it doesn't need to be perfect.
- Before you begin, mark the location of your studs so you can be sure you are nailing into a stud whenever possible. Use 2" finish nails to install the planks.
- If you are unable to nail into wood studs (for example, in a commercial building there may be metal studs), use Liquid Nail to adhere the planks to the wall along with finish nails. You may need to use shorter nails in this instance.
