Interior Cinderblock Wall Covering what to use???


What can be use to cover the interior room that's a painted cinder block wall?? Could bead board be used? I just want a fresh look other than looking at all those blocks! Nothing but cinder block in the entire house with skim cover over most rooms, but the last addition wasn't skim with anything! Please see my album of my work in progress!

Thanks!

Make sure your walls are sealed good as most anything will go bad with moisture. In that climate if it were my home I would go with a T&G 1X6 or 1X8. You may get away with using good paneling but stay away from the particle board, MDF or tempered masionite as you will for sure have problems with them. I would strip the walls with 1Xs using deck screws. Drill a hole the same size as the screw, cut some strands of #12 romax, place a single strand of the wire with the insulation in the hole and bend the wire over so it won't slide into the hole and screw the wood to the wall, it will hold for a fact I have hung cabinets like that.

Cypress


Jim,
Would cypress 1x's work as you have suggested? Would it be nessacery to install 1/2 inch installation on those cold walls, or would that be just extra expense.

Cypress would sure work great and it will last. If it were mine I would use as much insulation as will fit on the exterior walls, the more you can insulate the inside temperature from the outside temperature the better IMHO.

Cypress Wall


Thanks Jim, I think I'll be using the cypress, looks like it's going to be my best choice. I do have a good bit of 1x4x12 cypress on hand.
