Question

How to remove Pine Paneling without breaking it?


I have an early 60's house with real overlapping pine paneling. I need to get behind one wall.

What is the best way to remove this (and the trim) without destroying any of it?

What you have is probably 3/4" tongue and groove


The tools you will need:hammer,large heavy duty painters tool,small flat trim bar and a pair of channel lock pliers.(nail set too)

TRIM;Cut any caulk,use the painters tool like a chisel and gently drive it between the trim and the paneling,use the tool to loosen the trim a bit at a time.

Some times it's best to put the painters tool on top of the nails(between the trim and the paneling) and smack the handle with the hammer-that will actually pull the nail out through the back of the trim.

The paneling is tongue and groove,it is nailed on the tongue side.

You need to figure out which side of the wall (left or right)had the tongue.

Remove the first piece,it is probable that it is face nailed.Use the nail set to drive the nails all the way through the board.

Remove the board-with the nail set drive in the nails in the tongue-remove the board--Repeat

Use the channel locks to pull any nails out through the BACK of the board.

Use tape and number the boards before you start.

It's tedious but not hard. HAVE FUN---MIKE---
