Nantucket Beadboard

Stock Substrates

A substrate is like a sculptor’s stone; it’s the basis for your finished Nantucket® BeadBoard product. And so, it’s very important to carefully select a substrate that satisfies the requirements of your building project.

When choosing a substrate, consider where your beadboard will be used: if it will be exposed to excessive moisture (such as in a bathroom), if it will be indoors or out, or if it will be used for a ceiling or wall application.

All of our substrates are durable, stable, and can be delivered to you pre-primed—saving you valuable construction time. If you need assistance selecting the right substrate for your project, contact us—we’re here to help.
