Out with the Old…In with the New.

If you live in your Dallas area home for awhile the day will probably come when you will need to remove old wallpaper and install new.  The old wallpaper CAN be easy to peel off or hard to penetrate depending on what it covers.  As with all things such as this patience and skill are tantamount to completing the job!

There are three types of wallpaper…porous, non-porous, and dry-strippable.  Porous wallpaper, for example will absorb water quickly and loosen up, making it easy to strip.  You will be able to tell if it’s porous by applying some water to part of it using a sponge.  Some wallpaper has a decorative nonporous layer.  Dry strippable wallpaper may be the easiest to remove.

If you are married, would you like to stay that way?  Trying to remove old wallpaper and installing new could be a hazard to your matrimony!  Just kidding (not).  We are Home Pro Services serving the Dallas area for many different home improvement projects for years.  Call us and we will assess the job at (214) 886-3326.
