I just bought an old house. Not sure how old but it appears under all these panels walls, there is actually tongue and grooved planks.
The thing is, most of these panel walls are waving, I’m guessing from capturing moister between it and the wooden walls.
In another room they seem to have added rigid insulation but it still does the same thing just not so bad and I could live with it.
Now I would like to renovate some of these walls and redo some of the mistake the previous owner. Some of the wooden windows are glued shut using some kind of caulking (it’s tan) which I would like to make them functional and remove some rot that I have found as well.
So my main question is, how could I add some paneling without causing havoc over the years. Is there like some kind of breathing membrane I can use between the walls and the panels? And if so, what do you guys recommend? Some of the walls we will leave bare and recondition but wife doesn’t want a house with every wall out of wood.
Thanks in advance
