Attaching 1/4" faux brick to drywall - Best Method?
Hey guys.

I have 8'x4' sheets of faux brick paneling I need to attach to the wall.
They are 1/4" thick. This product specifically. <------

I was wondering a way I could attach these without ruining my drywall upon uninstall. I had the idea of nailing or screwing them into the studs of the home but those beams turned out to be metal :mad:

The installation recommendations of this product is as follows:
Installation Surface Recommendation: Direct to stud or over solid surface

Installation Method Recommendation: Nails and adhesive
By 'adhesive' i'm assuming they mean Liquid Nails which would ruin the drywall. I'm not sure how heavy these are, do you think I could hold them up with drywall screws? Here is a photo of the panels installed in someone else's home:

Any ideas? :yes:

That's a cool look for a garage. I think screwing it to the walls would probably work just fine.

glue is for permanence I'm thinking.
