I put up new pine tongue-and-groove paneling with nails (no glue) in my bathroom last winter. I live in Michigan, so the summer humidity is much different from the winter, and around May, every two feet or so, a seam came away from the wall. It was very disappointing...so much so that I still haven't done anything about it...
I have two questions:
If I just add some (carpenter's?) glue, should I be able to just tack it back up? Is that enough to defeat the expansion? Or did we put it in too tight? Can I just take a little off the end pieces on each wall or should I refit the whole thing?
Also, I realized that I failed to prime the green board behind the paneling! I was in a hurry because it needed to be up before the tub was installed...and of course now it is... Do I definitely need to prime? (I think I already know the answer to that one...)
Thanks to anyone with a little experience to share!
