    Would you be able to remove it without damaging the wall? Or is the contact cement permanent?

    The contact cement is pretty permanent. If you want to be able to remove it, you could adhere the cork to a piece of plywood and then attach the plywood to the wall.

    Is it true that Cork roll is good treatment for damp walls?

    Actually cork should not be installed to damp walls.

    Is this cork waxed? Interested in staining it darker.

    The rolled cork is not waxed so can be stained. We suggest using a water-based wood stain and testing a small piece prior to be sure the color is what you expect.

    What is the best material and thickness for a backer board?
    What is the brand name(s) of the contact cement?
    Thanks for the video.

    For the backer board, do you mean the cork or what to adhere the cork to? The thickness and material depends on your application. If you want cork thick enough for pushpins, the cork would need to be 1/4" (6mm) thick. We recommend using water based contact cement. A good brand is 3M. We'd be happy to discuss any questions with you in more detail. Please contact our customer support team (the link to our contact information is in the video description) and we can help you out.

    thanks. it is 3/8" 4'x8' roll cork and I want to install a large bulletin board onto a sheetrock wall. I also want to be able to remove it at some point so I'll drive screw to the studs. I was wondering is mdf or plywood sheathing is best – probably only 1/4" is needed. I also will rip the whole affair so it is 2'x8' or 3'x8'.

    Yes – 1/4" thickness is good. You can use either plywood or mdf – they both work fine.

    which glue will be more effective to stick the cork sheet to the concrete wall

    We recommend water-based contact cement. With a concrete wall, however, you need to ensure the wall is as smooth as possible for maximum adhesion. It cannot be raw brick – should be painted first. If you can fasten a plywood backer first and adhere the cork to that, that would be ideal. We'd be happy to discuss this with you in more detail.

    Hello – where did you get/find those large rolls of cork? I only see super thin narrow rolls or 12×12" squares
    Thx

    Great video – I'll be installing my 1/2" roll in a week or so – you made it look easy.
