Paneling in fish house

5 posts in this topic

Our paneling keeps warping up. If we put poly between the studs and paneling will this keep it from warping? Or is this a problem from constant hot/cold/hot/cold enviroment? We used that paneling from menards that's looks like real cedar but it's actually a picture printed on the sheet. (we've had arguments with people who swear it's real wood) It's really not cheap paneling so we're getting sick of fixing it every year.

We had that problem in my Dad aluminum custom house. It has a aluminum frame and after like a year it was warped terrible so we contact where the house was built and they said they used a plastic covered paneling looks like wood but it has a plastic look to it. It is all attached using plastic rivits. Then between the paneling and studs they put a vapor barrier ours looked like a piece of about 1/4" foam faced with a piece of cardboard. Ever since we did this never have had problems with it warping. The house still will sweat and condense but no more warped paneling every year. Go under the icefishing forum understanding posting pictures link and look at the picture I took of Marine_Man behind him is the paneling that is in ours house. I would think that you can find something like this at Menards.

Make sure you use plywood backed paneling! At home depot it tells you if it is suitable for mobile homes right on the back! Thats what you need! I bought mine at Menards last year and made sure that it had real wood backing and works great! Another thing you can use is called Luan Plywood also available at menards, it is 1/4" thick but very light! Works well also! Hope this helps!

I used 1/8" mahogany paneling in mine but I turned it backwards so the ruff side was to the interior of the house then I painted it white so the inside of the house is very bright even with low lighting. I did put a vapor barrier between the paneling and studs, I've had no problem with it warping and it has been in use for 15 years.
