In just 9 easy steps, you can get the look of cast concrete using urbanCONCRETE faux concrete wall panels. These concrete wall panels simply screw directly onto your wall without the need of any extra reinforcement. Follow these 9 quick steps to get the look of a concrete wall all by yourself!
Remove all pictures, nails, etc. off your wall as urbanCONCRETE faux concrete wall panels can be installed directly over gypsum, wallpaper and other flat wall surfaces. Using a stud finder, mark the studs to install your faux concrete panels onto.
Depending on the look you are going for, you can start from the center out or from an edge out.
Make sure that your first panel is level. Using the tongue and groove, screw your first panel into the wall. Spacing out the screws every 12" - 16", or following your studs. Drywall/gypsum screws or wood decking screws work best for this.
You can also mount the panels by screwing into the face circles or the panels pits to help fasten the boards to the wall. Don't worry about screw holes in the front of the pane, you can use the urbanCONCRETE caulking to hide these screws.
After the first panel is installed, overlap the side tongue to install the next panel. Ensure that the spacing between urbanCONCRETE panels is equal to help with the lines. Also, make sure that your first row if 100% level.
Once you have you are at the end of the row, you will need to measure and cut a panel to fit. Using a table saw, make the cut and install the urbanCONCRETE as you have installed the other ones. Overlap the edge and ensure the panel is level.
Now that the first row is complete, finish each of the other rows. Once you get within 24" of the ceiling or the top of your install, measure the remaining wall. Cutting these panels to fit so you are still mounting them using the tongue and grooves.
With your panels cut, install them by using screws on the face circles or pits. Slide them into place using the tongue and groove system.
Once you've installed all the panels you can cover up seams, holes, or screws using the urbanCONCRETE caulking that matches the color of your panel.
Enjoy your amazing urbanCONCRETE wall!
