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!

Forget the paneling... Go with pine car siding

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.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
