Problem: You notice a lot of bubbles right after wallcovering is installed
Solution: It is very common that some bubbles develop right after the wallpaper is installed. But don't freak out. Wait until the next day to check for bubbles. Give it 24 hours. chances are all bubbles will disappear after the glue dries. Of course the installer should smooth out any bubbles during installation. In case there are a few stubborn bubbles left, just puncture with a thin needle and slowly smooth it out. Or cut an x-shape with a sharp blade over the bubble and repaste the flaps down.
Problem: The wallpaper seams are too visible. Common problem when applying dark wallpaper on a white or clear wall.
Solution: Before install paint the wall same approximate color as the wallpaper background to disguise the seams.
Dark wallpapers often produce more obvious seams because the paper they are printed on is white, which means the thin edge of the paper creates a white seam. In this case use a dark crayon that matches the background color of the paper and color the edges of each strip before hanging.
Problem: Don’t have enough wallpaper to finish the job. And the paper is discontinued.
Solution: Call customer service of the company you bought the paper from and ask for the manufacturer who produced the paper. And call the manufacturer asking if they have any left.
Also, take note of the wallpaper run number. The run number is specific to a batch that your wallpaper was printed in. As colors and even the spacing of prints can vary slightly from one batch to another.
Problem: The wall paint color is showing through the wallpaper.
Solution: Not much you can do after the installation.
Before install, Always prime or paint the wall with a tinted primer in the same color or similar shade to the background color of the wallpaper.
Don't go darker than the wallpaper background color
Problem: The wallpaper is all splotchy with irregularly shaped spots after installation.
Solution: The best way to prevent this from happening is to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding paste. Especially when the paper material is very delicate. There are lots of different kinds of paste used to hang wallpaper. Many installers don't use the right paste.
Problem: Wallpaper in high moisture areas such as bathrooms tend to peel.
Solution: Always select "splashproof" wallpaper. This wallpaper wipeable and is specifically designed for high humidity areas.
Problem: Wallpaper looks only as good as the drywall it is installed on. Bad surface preparation results in terrible installation.
Solution: 2 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SHOTCOUNT WALLCOVERING INSTALL
When it comes to commercial wallcoverings, it’s important to work with a company with quality work you can trust.
As opposed to residential wallpaper, commercial wallcoverings can be much more expensive — and if it’s been installed incorrectly, it can leave a bad impression on your partners and clients.
With more than three decades of experience in the industry, our team can help you choose and install the best wallcoverings for your business. But before you send us a message, here are two things you need to know about the commercial wallcovering services that SHOTCOUNT Walls provides.
OUR WALLCOVERING PROCESS
Unlike many other wallcovering companies, we adhere to a process that may take a little longer than usual… but the results speak for themselves. Here’s what you can expect when you work with us:
First, we’ll prep your wall by creating a perfectly flat surface. Most walls aren’t perfectly flat, whether it’s because of holes made from hanging picture frames, dents, scratches, or something else. We’ll patch up any irregularities with drywall compound and sand them down to a flat surface.
Next, we address any textural issues on your wall. If your wall is textured, we apply a layer of plaster to cover it up and create a smooth surface for your wallcovering.
After that, we’ll wipe down the entire surface area of the wall with our vinegar solution to clean it and remove any loose debris or dust still hanging on.
Finally, we install your wallcovering using our proprietary, Old World methods. Once that’s complete, you can enjoy the new look of your office, reception area, or commercial space!
