Installing A Vinyl Beadboard Ceiling On Porch

One of our site visitors, Shelly, contributed this photograph and helpful information about installing a vinyl beadboard ceiling:

I am almost finished installing a vinyl beadboard ceiling. I thought it might be helpful for people looking for a maintenance-free option.

The 6" planks (actually solid soffit material) are run parallel to the joists with plywood strips running between joists to provide a nailing surface for every plank. Each plank is screwed (provides more control than nailing) in 4 places along the 6-ft length.

Screw pattern is staggered so each course is screwed into every other strip. The cut ends (allow 1/4 on each end for expansion, and make sure the screws in the nailing flanges aren't so tight that the plank can't slide) are supported by J channel at the house (just the top of the J channel installed for the siding) and the carrying beam.

Here is a shot of the finished vinyl beadboard ceiling. I still have to finish the bottom of the beam, the other side of the beam (vented soffit) and replace some siding, then I'll share pictures of the whole porch!
