Can I glue shiplap?

Shiplap can be installed directly to sheet rock/drywall. Simply mark the stud locations for nailing the shiplap or you can apply a construction adhesive such as liquid nails. If applying directly to the studs, you will need to check local building and fire codes to ensure the proper requirements are met.

Considering this, can you glue shiplap to a wall?

Shiplap planks can be fastened to walls either vertically or horizontally. Simply nail through drywall directly into wall studs. You can use construction adhesive if installing on ceilings or over other surfaces in good condition—just finish-nail in place to hold the pieces while the adhesive dries.

One may also ask, how do you hide your nails on shiplap? Use the tongue & groove boards to hide your finish nails. Placing your finish nails at a slight angle on the tongue of the board allows your to hide the fastener head with the next board which gives it a very seamless look without needing wood filler or patching to hide your nail holes.

Furthermore, do you nail or glue shiplap?

Tip: You can attach your shiplap boards with construction adhesive or nails or both. Place a nail through the top and bottom of each shiplap board where it crosses a stud. Use adhesive to glue the board down first or ask a partner to help you hold it in place.
