Thoroughly removing wallpaper and glue is essential to a successful paint job.
Wallpaper can be lovely if installed properly and done tastefully; but unfortunately, it is one of those things that go out of style quickly. Nothing dates a home quite like outdated, peeling wallpaper.
Removing old wallpaper can be painfully time-consuming and just flat-out frustrating. There are some helpful tips to make the job a little more tolerable. Stripping wallpaper is one of those areas that you can’t afford to cut corners in. If you don’t remove the old glue completely, no matter how many layers of paint you apply over it, the paint will crack and flake like an earthquake hit it.
Here are a series of steps to follow, and if done correctly, you should have a clean surface ready for your new design.
Definitely a process that tries the patience, but as with any renovation, it’s rewarding in the end. Request a free estimate from a professional painter to bring some modern design to your home.
