Installation precautions

1. It is necessary to avoid problems such as uneven wainscoting and different thicknesses of the top strips. During installation, use laser level to check whether the top of the wainscoting is straight. If there are any problems, then you can correct them in time.

2. It is necessary to avoid joint cracking, which is mainly caused by the high moisture content of the wood and its shrinkage after drying. Generally, the unevenness is caused by too small nails, too long distance between nails, and without applying adhesive etc.
