Wood Veneers Installation Guide

Installing wood veneer is quick and simple, it requires the same tools as installing a typical vinyl wallcovering. It is important that the pre-installation and installation conditions are met and that the areas to be covered are prepared correctly.


Key elements for a successful installation are:

  • Surface Preparation
  • Adhesive and Primer Selection
  • Environment Conditions
  • Quality Worksmanship

The appearance of architectural wood veneer wallcovering is largely determined by the matching and slicing method. There are 4 types of veneer matching to consider :

  • Book Match

  • Swing Match
  • End Match
