This post is going to show Greenville SC homeowners how to hang a pegboard.

Pegboards can help you organize your closets, work spaces, garages and basements.  Once you start to see how handy they are you will probably want to install more.

Step 1: Allow for Sufficient Space Behind the Pegboard

When mounting pegboard, it’s critical to remember that it must be mounted so there is a little bit of space behind the surface of the board because the hooks or pegs are designed to insert through holes in the board and hook from behind.

Step 2: Mark the Location of the Wall Studs

As with cabinets and shelving, you’ll first need to find the wall studs behind the drywall for mounting the pegboard support strips. A stud sensor will simplify the job of finding the wall studs. Once you’ve located and marked the wall studs, use a level to scribe a horizontal line on the wall to serve as a guide.

Step 3: Create A Framework Backing for the Pegboard

Mount a horizontal strip of wood to the wall with wood screws using the mark as a guide. Drive the screws into the studs to provide adequate support. Follow this same procedure to install strips to create a framework backing for your pegboard, including some vertical strips across the center area to provide median support so that the pegboard is structurally sound once it is mounted.
