FAQ

Yes. We can supply wallpaper that is on our online shop, there may be wallpaper that we can source for you from our supplier contacts.

We will also install any wallpaper even if you bought it elsewhere.

We can bring some sample books to you to view in your own home.

We charge by the square meter in most cases. However every project is different so in order to work out the meterage rate there are details such as if there is much to cut around like in bathroom or if its to be installed on a staircase that make a difference to the standard price. (see below: what information we need  in order to send you a quote)

If there is masonry on the walls it is best to use a steamer. If on plasterboard do not use a steamer as you could damage the plasterboard.

Without a steamer, the best way is using warm water with detergent. Use a bucket and roller to cover wallpaper. Leave for a few minutes then repeat. Use a heavy duty window scraper to scrape away paper. Ideally you want to take off the top layer first if there are multiple layers.

If it is proving hard to remove; score the paper with a knife to let water in which helps it soak it through.

There are a few times we may need to look at the work before we start:

-If it is a large scale project

-If there is some preparation work to be done before wallpapering

-If it is a combination of painting and wallpapering

-If there is an unusual layout for wallpapering i.e. many angles or a staircase

-All painting work needs to be viewed prior to quoting as we need to see what preparation is involved

– Measurements of area or plans including ceiling height

– Types of wallpaper you have ie. name/brand/code

– Is the wallpaper going on a flush wall or is there much to cut around ie. a bathroom

-Is it for your home or a commercial project

-The only items we ask you to move are small, fragile, breakable items, as well as taking down any tv’s or shelves (if possible) ready for wallpaper.

-We always leave your home tidy, clean and how we found it.

As professionals we will ensure that the surfaces are suitably perfect before wallpapering.

Wallpaper:

-Unless further work is specified in your quote we will give the surface a basic sand to smooth and if there are any pin holes we can fill them.

-New surfaces must be sealed a minimum of 12 hours prior to installation with one coat of a water based paint

Not always. If your project is over a certain amount we would require a 10% deposit and a 10% deposit for materials in some cases. We would always notify you of this prior to starting in our Terms of Trade that you would receive.

Sometimes a part payment is also required part way through the work if it is an ongoing project that lasts longer than 2 weeks or is broken up into stages.
