Panels FAQ

Install Questions

Our faux panels are very easy to install. Refer to our Panel Installation Page to learn how to install faux panels for interiors, exteriors, ledgers, and trim and electrical outlets. There are a variety of how-to videos and guides that you can use as a resource along the way.

Each wall paneling can be cut very easily with any quality wood cutting tool. Instructions on how to cut a panel can be found in the Panel Instruction section of our website.

Product Questions

All pricing can be found on individual product pages.

Our faux products are made from high-density polyurethane. All are handcrafted by in-house artisans located here in the United States.

FAQ: How many panels do I need? – This will all depend on your project. We recommend taking dimensions and then utilizing our quantity calculator on each product page to help determine what you need. The quantity calculator uses your dimensions, and the selected wall panel dimensions to advise on coverage needs. Using this calculator also accounts for a waste factor of about 10%

Fireplace Questions

Our products can be used in these applications but with restrictions. Although our products are incredibly realistic, keep in mind that they are not real brick, stone, or rock. They are manufactured utilizing high-density polyurethane and have similar burning characteristics to real wood and should be considered combustible. Most of our products can be used around a fireplace opening/insert, and/or stove, provided you follow the fireplace insert/stove manufacturer's specifications for required clearances. When using our products around an open hearth where there will be a "live flame" (i.e., wood, coal, etc.), you must use some type of stone or non-flammable border. 

Please read more of our products and fireplaces information on our terms and conditions.

Yes, Barron Designs offers a Class-A Fire Rated Polyurethane for our wall panels which must be requested at the time the order is placed. Please read more about the Class-A Fire Rated Polyurethane in our terms and conditions.

Where Can I Put My Panels?

Yes. Any of our panels can be used for mobile home skirting. Find instructions on the panel exterior installation page of our website.

No. Our faux panels are rigid and should not be used on curved surfaces.

Yes, in most cases. To install faux panels over most tiling you would only need to ensure that the existing tile is structurally sound and flat/level. If it is an extremely textured (uneven) tile, such as a tumbled marble tile with designs in it, or if it has a different height bullnose tile ruining through/between the tiles, it will need to be removed before installing our products.

If your tile has a low profile/flat face surface,the next step is to ensure it is clean, dry, and secure. We also recommend that you use fine grit sandpaper and rough up the surface of the tiles so that the adhesive works better.

The most important thing with any installation is surface integrity. If your existing tile or grout is loose or chipping, you may have to remove it first. You can install our panels over tile using our adhesive-only installation instructions.

Yes, in many cases. Our wall panels require a structurally sound, relatively smooth surface for installation, so it depends on the texture of the stucco. If it is a “slight” (less than ¼”) stucco, you should be able to install our product over it. If the texture of the stucco is heavy or severe, it will require sanding or removing the stucco so there is adequate surface contact (minimum of 85%) between our product and the wall.

The appropriate installation method will depend on the type of wall beneath the stucco.

If it is some type of plywood, MDF, etc. (standard framing materials) then you would just follow our standard exterior adhesive and fastener installation procedures for panels. If it is concrete or masonry then follow the adhesive-only exterior installation instructions.
