      • How does the ceiling kit mount?

      • How do I apply stain, finish, or sealer?


      • Lightly scuff the entire surface of the product that you plan on coating with 120-180 grit sandpaper.
      • Apply 2-3 coats of primer before applying your main coat.
      • Always apply a finish when you're happy with the paint for a long-lasting appearance.


      • Sand the surface on all faces with sandpaper traveling with the grain of the wood.
      • Apply stain very cautiously to a section of the product that will not be visible to gauge the volume and pressure you need to achieve the look you want.
      • Apply the stain evenly with a rag, sponge, or spray gun until all surfaces are coated.
      • Please note that overlapping surfaces may make the stain darker on the overlapped areas.
      • Always apply a finish when you're happy with the stain for a long-lasting appearance.

      Other Notes

      • Fan Cutouts, A/C Cutouts, and other cuts are not standard. Please see custom options for more information.
      • This kit is designed to be installed with foam corners installed
      • We can not guarantee consistency in grain or pattern in natural wood colors as they are made from real wood veneer and sometimes nature is inconsistent.
      • 1/2" Plywood panels are plywood with veneer laminate and because of this, grain will be visible on sides between gaps.
      • Panels are not edge banded as more temperate climates may cause adhesive to melt and banding to peel. For this reason, raw wood is visible on sides of panels.
      • Lights are included when choosing the Single or Dual Puck Light option.
      • This kit ships in a box or on a pallet if you have a larger order. 
      • We are not responsible for damages caused by modification of our panels for your own custom additions.
      • If a panel is damaged, we won't make you purchase a new kit. Simply let us know which panel and we can ship a replacement!
