Veneer panels are made of finely sliced real timber. They are a sustainable and renewable resource and offer the same timeless appeal of hardwood panels but at a far affordable price. So, what are the best practices when it comes to buying veneer panels for your next project? Let’s take a look:
- Buy Sufficient Enough For Your Entire Project: Since raw timber logs are completely unique, and their colour and grain vary from product to product, it’s recommended to know your exact requirements and buy enough in one go to finish your whole project. Even if you buy the same species, except from basic characteristics, there may be variations in figuring, knots and mineral etc. If you’re not certain about your precise requirements, always buy extra timber veneer. This can help you save some serious time and trouble later on.
- Buying Veneer for the Damaged Parts: First of all, carefully remove the damaged area from the surface of your existing item. Now patch it with a new veneer of similar quality and appearance. Make sure that the new patched veneer matches the texture of grains around it. Secondly, always use a suitable adhesive to fix the patch. This will largely depend on the type of veneer and the technique you are using. Please feel free to contact our professionals for more guidance in this regard.
- Choosing The Right Finish- Before you start applying a suitable finish, make sure the area is clean and free from dust. Check your timber panels for imperfections such as bubbles and ridges etc. You can use a torch light to illuminate the surface and find such flaws easily. These problems must be fixed before finishing. Different problems need to be addressed in different ways. Finishes come in a huge variety including oil, varnish, stain and water based finishes, to name a few.
Decorative veneers are perfect to give any surface an elegant look and finish at a very low cost. No wonder, veneers are one of the most effective and sought-after laminates available to the business owners today.
