covering lines in wood paneling.


Hi.
Can you guys give me suggestions on how to fill the lines in painted wood paneling. Will spackle or mud work for this? Thanks

I have seen it done with mud but I don't think I would do it.I wouldn't trust it.How much paneling do you have? Have you thought about covering it with drywall?

Did you look to see what the walls are like under the paneling?

I would prime the paneling with oil Cover Stain, then spackle (joint compound) the recesses. I just watched another guy do it on another part of a job I'm on. Looks good. I don't think you would have any problems with delamination.

I've done it several times over the years with mixed results. Epson is right, most of the time it's more trouble than it's worth. You fill the cracks, let dry, fill again until you get it flush. Then you have to sand and throw dust everywhere. It's a big process and in the end you still have paneling. I actually like leaving the lines. After painting, they blend in and aren't quite as noticeable. Follow JSheridan's process if you really want to fill them in. Another old trick which I don't recommend is covering the gaps with masking tape.

It is a lot of work. Couldn't you install a heavy wall liner and just paint that?

I would just throw up new drywall. Seems like it would be more trouble than its worth to fill the cracks.

See what's under the paneling.I have run across a lot of houses with paneling over drywall.
