Residential Papering header addition

Paperhanging has changed from a trade into a science. With the addition of prepasted papers, the trade has become more difficult. When we used to add paste it was always the same. Now each paper has a different formula. You can only learn how to wallpaper through experience. You have all heard the horror stories of your friends. Some papers do hang nice, but how do you know?

The most important step is wall prep. Many paperhangers are skimping here to keep down the price. This usually produces devastating seams. Some walls need more than size or sealer. Some need a color on them to give the paper depth. Keep in mind your walls will only look as good as they really are even with paper on them. Any imperfections not properly prepared will show when the paper dries. We use a residential pasting machine and a diluted solution of pastes on all prepasted papers. The pasting machine ensures a uniform distribution of paste without any skips. The counter ensures the pieces are always cut to the right length and never to long.
