Thank you to Wall Control for providing the product in this project!
Steph and I have installed a lot of Wall Control metal pegboard over the years. With the exception of the replacement plastic pegboard at Steph's house, we've always started on empty walls. This time is different!
Steph's friend, Daniel, installed old school wood pegboard in his garage when he moved into his house a few years ago. Over time, due to the Florida heat and humidity, that pegboard had started to deteriorate. The wood had expanded and contracted making the pegs not fit correctly. It was time for an upgrade!
With Wall Control's partnership, Steph and Daniel, upgraded Daniel's garage from the wood pegboard to metal.
Once the first panel is in the place, it's very easy to add the remaining ones. Although, you can install the panels by yourself, it is much easier with a buddy! Each panel has six holes. If the holes line up with a stud, a 1/8" hole is predrilled, if not, 1/4" holes are drilled to accommodate a wall anchor. This set-up had a combination of both.
Wall Control metal pegboard is a superior replacement for old school wood pegboard. If you live in a hot humid area this may be just what your garage needs.
