We Remove the Old Wallpaper for a Fresh Start! 

Why Is It Important to Remove Old Wallpaper?

Anyone who has painted before is probably familiar with how important it is to have a fresh start. If you have ever tried to remove old wallpaper at home yourself, you realize it can be a very messy and time-consuming procedure. Steaming or wetting the old material on walls can take some time, and scraping can leave grooves in the wall. Pieces of the plaster wall or sheetrock underneath can even break away.

Expert You Need to Remove Any Type of Wall Covering

As with a clean canvas, removing wallpaper gives the paint a fresh surface and better adherence. Some people just think painting over existing wallpaper will take care of it. However, older wallpaper can often flake or tear off during a painting application and contribute to a poor result. RL Waddell is the expert you need to remove any type of wall covering:

Problems That Exist with Flocked or Patterned Wallpaper

Often, paint is used as the easiest way to cover a wall or give an office space a fresh new look. Problems may arise with existing paper that is flocked, embossed, or has a pattern. These designs and images have a tendency to come through multiple coats of paint. This causes a less-than-desired overall effect, and is often a prime reason to have wallpaper removed prior to the painting process.

The Old Glue Gives Way – It All Comes Down

We have even seen entire strips of paint and wallpaper both come away from the wall, especially on DIY projects. This occurs when the paint loosens the old or misapplied glue keeping the paper up. It is best to remove wallpaper and any residual glue, fix any scrapes or pitting in the surface, and prepare the wall properly for the fresh coats of paint.
