3 Reasons to Remove Old Wood Paneling

Due to its affordability, wood paneling was popular in the 1950s through the 1970s, but it’s fallen out of fashion over the years. If you’re tired of your wooden features, you can have a drywall contractor remove them.

Why You Should Have a Drywall Contractor Remove Wood Paneling

When wood paneling is removed by a professional, they’re able to create a new look while causing the least amount of disruption to the surface below, leaving it prepped for whatever comes next. Here are a few benefits that come with professional drywall removal:

1. Change Up Your Design

Wood paneling locks you into a rustic look. While you might have liked it when you first moved in, removing the paneling gives you more design flexibility. You can go for a modern or contemporary style, or paint the walls a new, exciting color. Getting rid of dark panels will brighten up your space.

2. Make Your Home Look Brand New

Most people associate this style with traditional homes, so wood paneling can make your property look outdated. Removing the panels and creating a feature wall with a bright color or fun wallpaper will bring your house to the 21st century. 

3. Increase Your Property Value

Since wood paneling is out of style, many potential home buyers may see it as a downside. This could make or break a sale. If you’re considering selling your home in the future, hiring a drywall contractor to remove this older feature is a must. Even if you’re not looking to sell soon, keeping your house updated over the years will make the selling process less expensive and tiring when it’s time.
