Question Furring strips always required?


I am planning on putting beadboard paneling up on a wall and I read tutorials. They all say to put up furring strips.

If I am putting it up over drywall, do I need to worry about that?

Furring strips would only be neccesary if you were using the old traditional bead board [narrow strips] No need for it with paneling. Be sure to have your 4' seams land on a stud.

Look at the Georgia Pacific website. Under building products there's a quide to installing their beaded plywood. Anybody elses would be much the same. It's nails into the studs and adhesive elsewhere. And Marksrs tip about the seams over the studs is important. If the ends aren't nailed solidly the panel can peel away from the wall.
