New England Classic® now offers a beadboard wainscoting solution that not only looks totally authentic but out perfoms conventional beadboard wainscot alternatives by a country mile. Featuring a crisp, rounded double bead design, our Classic Beadboard recreates the look and feel of Country and "Cottage Style" architecture at its best.
The system's panel sections, rails, caps and shoes integrate perfectly with other components from New England Classic® including FramePaks® and CasingPaks® for trimming your doors and windows with perfectly matched moldings.
Our paintable beadboard panels are precision cut, typically to either 8"x23" or 8"x31." All components use an engineered wood core which ensures minimal seasonal expansion and contraction, so there are no unsightly gaps or seams. Our stainable wood panels are typically 48"x23" or 48"x31," depending upon the finished height you order.
Each Classic Beadboard® 8-foot kit contains enough panels, base, shoe, top rail and top cap molding to cover eight running (linear) feet. The installed system has four standard finished heights: 32", 36", 40" and 44" cut at our factory. The installation is a snap, requiring less than half the time of solid boards applications since little cutting is needed once you receive the product.
Painting is also quick and simple with no sanding necessary. Our paintable elements are fully primed and ready to paint with latex, oil, or acrylic. One finish coat provides a rich smooth surface and years of satisfaction. Our stain grades are ready-to-finish, as well. You can order your panels with a professional factory finish, as well, at an added, but reasonable cost.
The entire cost of the Classic Beadboard® system will surprise you and the time saved in installation and finishing makes the system more than affordable for almost every situation. There is no better way to bring the warmth and style of beadboard wainscot to your next project than with the New England Classic® system.
