HOW TO GET READY
TO WALLPAPER INSTALLATION
SMOOTH WALLS
Wallpapers are delicate material and require what all the walls should be complete smooth (untextured) to level .
Pleas let us know if you need our help with smoothing.

PAINT & CAULK FIRST
Paint ceiling, adjacent walls, and baseboards first.
Leave a 1/4" margin of adjacent colors overlap onto the wall to be wallpapered for best results.

Caulk baseboards, framing, trims, cabinets first.

Important!
Do not paint the walls to be wallpapered.
Freshly painted walls should cure for 3-4 weeks before priming to wallpaper.

CLEAN AND CLEAR PROJECT
All the dusty jobs need to be done prior to wallpapering.

Please make sure room is clean and sanitized especially toiled areas that we will need to get up close and personal with.

Please have area cleared from all personal/small/fragile items. We need at minimum 3 feet of space in front of walls.
PRIMED WALLS
Walls should be primed with specific primer rolled with 1/2" nap roller, not sprayed!
NO PVA primer!

Which primer?

- If walls have been skimcoated, they should dry for a week before priming.
Please use this primer only for skimcoated walls - ZINSSER GARDZ (clear)

- if walls have been already painted with flat/matt paint, wet wipe the walls, dry and prime walls with one of these
PPG seal grip gripper or Fresh Start Acrylic

- if walls have already been painted with eggshell/semi gloss/ gloss paint, it need to be sanded and washed before priming. prime with one of these:
PPG seal grip gripper or Fresh Start Acrylic

Do not paint the walls to be wallpapered.
Freshly painted walls should cure for 3-4 weeks before priming to wallpaper

PLEASE
make sure you wiped off all the debris and dust from the wall before applying a primer


MAINTAINED TEMP & CLIMATE
The temperature of the room should be maintained between 65°F to 70°F for 5 days prior wallpapering and 5 days later.

Please close windows and doors and turn off the heating, to enable your wallpaper to dry in the right conditions.
Otherwise it can dry too quickly, resulting in unwelcome shrinkage at the seams.

Please put the wallpaper rolls in the same room it will be installed, to let them acclimate for 3 days prior to installation day.
