Here at Painter and Decorator Hull, we provide a wide range of services to all of our customers, and one of our specialties is wallpaper. We can strip down your old wallpaper and hang your new wallpaper in its place and most importantly, we will do it properly. There are a lot of amateur contractors out there that will attempt this but will end up making a mess of it because they simply aren’t skilled enough to do it right. When stripping down the old wallpaper, you must make sure that you do it correctly. You must be very careful not to damage the wall underneath and not leave bits of the old wallpaper left over and also not create any marks or dents in the wall. If you damage the wall, then this is very obvious, especially when applying the new wallpaper afterwards. After spending the money on the new wallpaper, you want to make sure that there is a nice smooth surface left over on the wall on which to apply it and also you want to make sure that the new wallpaper is applied correctly. You want to make sure that the wallpaper sheets are aligned perfectly so as they all blend into each other effortlessly. It is also important that there are no missing patches or areas left on the wall, especially near doors, windows and skirting boards. The wallpaper should be hung all the way to the edge of the wall leaving no missing areas. This is why you need to call on a professional painter and decorator to hang your wallpaper. There is a lot of margin for error and if it is not done right then it can look really bad.
Advantages of Wallpaper
Some of the advantages that wallpaper has over paint is that there are a lot of different textures available to choose from. There are a lot of different types of wallpaper available and a wide range of prices available, depending on what type of wallpaper you’re looking for. You can also buy themed wallpaper which can really transform a room. These are really nice in children’s rooms where they can choose their favourite sports team, singer or cartoon theme and completely transform their room. You can also buy thick wallpaper for some walls that are old and weathered looking. Applying some wallpaper to these types of walls can cover up the cracks and completely change the way it looks.
Disadvantages of Wallpaper
Some of the disadvantages that wallpaper has compared to paint is that it is more expensive. There are a wide range of prices where wallpaper is concerned, but on the whole, wallpaper does tend to cost a bit more. Wallpaper can also tend to fade, if left exposed to sunlight too long and is much more difficult to remove compared to paint.
