Wallpaper Installation & Removal

Wallpaper Removal

Removal, surface remedy, and painting is a very common update in the homes we service.  It can be a daunting DIY task and few people really have the time, patience, or stamina to make it happen.

How It’s Done:

Plaster surfaces offer more options from hot water to DIF to use of a steamer.  Drywall surfaces are best done using steamers only, which greatly reduce the risk of damage to the wall.

How It’s Priced:

As experienced industry professionals, Colorwheel adheres to the industry standard of removing wallpaper on a time and materials basis.  What’s that?  In short, the task itself is billed hourly at our current billing rate.  The materials themselves are billed too, but these are generally minimal.  Concerned We’d Milk the Clock? Don’t be!  For two reasons, let’s put your mind at ease:  1)  our customers are our best source of future work, referrals, and positive reviews…. so we have every motivation to keep you happy!   and 2)  we really don’t like removal, which translates to wanting it done as fast as possible!

Common Mistakes:

  • Scoring tools, used with too much power, damage drywall substrate
  • DIF solution gets on adjacent surfaces like trim or flooring
  • Hot water (or water-DIF mix) saturates woodwork, causing warping or other damage such as discoloration
  • Paste residue gets tracked across floors
  • Paper tid-bits get embedded into flooring
  • Electrical outlets short circuit when not properly covered or monitored
  • Moisture levels impact other product application (excessive steam on ceiling when painting of ceiling occurs)
  • Assuming all glue is gone when in fact sealing/priming is critical to paint adhesion

Wallpaper Installation

Installing wallpaper is one of the easiest (visually easiest) ways to bring high-impact, unique, even rare touches to your home.  Whether you choose a subtle design or a brilliant eye-catching pattern, the point is, the choice is yours!  Otherwise, we’d recommend that you work with an interior designer  and/or a wall-covering store to help you in this endeavor.

How It’s Done

Sheryl will carefully go over the manufacturers installation tips and suggestions, and ensure she knows the pattern, the repeat, and more.  She’ll then carefully measure and place each piece!

How It’s Priced

Each project is so unique, that Sheryl must know what paper you have chosen, and also look at the space first-hand, in order to come up with a price.  Ultimately, the price of the paper, materials, and labor will dictate the outcome.
