Contact Industries 4 in. tongue and groove paneling
Contact Industries' latest addition to its growing line of wood-wrapped innovations is a thinner, narrower 4-in. version of its tongue and groove paneling for use on walls and ceilings. Like many of Contact's natural wood-wrapped products, this new paneling product offers the beauty of solid wood, but in long, clear, defect-free, color-consistent lengths. Contact's advances in veneer technology allow for tongue and groove boards in lengths up to 18 ft., and widths up to 10 in., providing ease of installation, which results in less labor and an overall lower installed cost. Contact's new tongue and groove paneling is available in both hardwood and softwood species, with Vertical Grain Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar being the most popular choices for softwood paneling. Because Contact is able to offer 18 ft. lengths, most surfaces will require no end-joints, resulting in one clear, defect-free board stretching the length of the ceiling. And, the softwood core makes for much easier handling. With Contact's Wood-wrapped T&G Paneling, there is no need for predrilling nail holes.
