Thanks, do you know from where I can buy this wall in GTA or who can help for installation?PointsHubby wrote: ↑ Ya...
Make sure you use the right products for whatever you intend to apply
(Backing, adhesive, etc)
Otherwise it’s a disaster waiting to happen
The heavier the surface material the more important this is
Too heavy and not only can you screw up the drywall (would need a plywood backing)
Or ... the flooring / supporting structure ... from the weight
Also, if you do do something like this
Don’t cheap out like the guy did from this pic
You want to go right to the ceiling
And unless you have a massive wall ...
you probably want to go wall to wall too
Or at least to a point where there’s a more natural feeling structural break / end zone

Go in the store & talk to someone
Explain it’s an interior application ... for look only
Bring photos & measurements of the wall you want to do
A KNOWLEDGEABLE Clerk should be able to give you advice
Also possible that a Big Box DIY Store may offer up a workshop, on line videos, or a printed/ downloadable install how to guide
ALSO ... if your intent is to do an electric fireplace
Or hang a tv on that same wall
Let them know that ... as that’s a lot of extra weight
Cuz the situation will definitely need to be prepared to handle that load too
(Such as a plywood backer board installed ... and not just the clips for the faux stone screwed into the studs)

Yes but that defeats the purpose of a fireplace as you can't have it going with the tv pulled down. This is why I took out our fireplace in our family room as it was not working with the furniture layout... we have plans to add one into the living room at a later date.redzone wrote: ↑ there are some nice wall mounts that pull down. So you can achieve the look but still have a decent tv viewing experience long term.
