Sealing Spotlight: The Importance of Sealing Your DIY Beadboard with Yellow Brick Home

Sealing a Kitchen

The project discussed in this post is sponsored by the makers of GE Sealants & Adhesives.

Kim and Scott from Yellow Brick Home were in the homestretch of renovating their house near Lake Michigan, a home they lovingly call their “Michigan Tree House”. Their last project was the renovation of their master bathroom, which included all new appliances and a modern beadboard wall. As part of the finishing touches, Kim and Scott, in collaboration with the makers of GE Sealants & Adhesives, sealed their DIY beadboard wall with a high-quality sealant.

Kim and Scott chose paintable Max* Shield Ultra Seal Siliconized Acrylic sealant to seal their beadboard wall. This sealant was a great choice, as their paint project was located in a moisture-prone area – the bathroom. Bathroom projects are especially at-risk for water damage and mold or mildew growth. Fortunately, Max Shield Ultra Seal sealant stretches over 500%1 and has Tri Shield protection: 100% waterproof, excellent adhesion and flexibility and lifetime mold-free product protection2. And, it’s a best-in-class3 sealant, backed by a lifetime guarantee4.
