T1-11 on camp walls.

We used the pine wood T1-11 siding for the inside walls of our addition at camp in the spring. This past weekend was work weekend and we built some a couple sets of bunk beds so we can now sleep 16 comfortably. We decided we would like to use some sealer or polyurethane on the T1-11 walls as they are pretty rough if you brush up against them. We did try a can of no odor polyurethane from Lowes for $48 but the wall seemed to suck the stuff right up and didn't feel any smoother than when we started. Although the stuff did seem thinner than normal polyurethane. Besides sanding it down or giving multiple coats does anyone have any experience working with this stuff?

Hunting is not a matter of life and death. It's more important than that.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

We used it at our place your options are sanding it down, multiple coats, or dropping more money and using a commercial grade poly that they use on bars or like a gym floor.

I would have just used a different paneling from the start. But since it is up a few coats of poly is what we did and your best option.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

We did the interior of our camp with T1-11 about 8 years ago.
We did not put anything on it.
It yellowed a bit but still looks good.
The cost and work involved to coat it with a finish was not worth it in my opinion.
You would probably need 4-5 coats of poly before you would see results.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

We put it in our camp in 1973 feeling that it would hold up well with the humidity and it did, still there and still looks great. I stained the panels before hauling them up to camp and then just touched up where we had to make fresh cuts, still holding the color for over 40 years. As far as the rough finish, it never really caused a problem. T-111 is a good choice for unheated interiors.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

I decided to go the knotty pine direction because of what u had mentioned but I still like the look. Wondering out loud I thought that good oil based poly is not available in pa. But could be wrong.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

We put two coats on, which did nothing for the texture. But it gave it a real nice rustic look.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

Honestly, I'd just deal with the rough texture. I'd tell all the camp members to not get so drunk that they brush up against it constantly. And if they must, don't wear their best silky shirts.

I found this on Amazon and may just give it a try. It is oil based and kind of reasonably priced with free shipping. A couple of coats might do the trick. The first coat from the gallon from Lowes did give the wood a nice look. Soaked it in pretty quick in the section of wall we tried it on so 5 gallons or more will be needed to finish the job. Thanks for the tips and suggestions.

Re: T1-11 on camp walls.

Word of caution. Since you already put a coat of poly on it, there may be an issue of having any type of oil based stain or paint getting it to "stick" effectively. I would test that out somehow before dumping a wad on multiple gallons ?
