Wallpaper seems to go in and out of style. If you feel your wallcoverings are dated and you'd like to remove them, we can do that for you, but there are several steps involved:
Removing the visible top paper is only the first step. Under that is the backing paper, which must be completely removed as well.
After that, the glue residue must be removed by being scrubbed by sponge and/or scraped. Once dry, the surface is sanded, and then an oil-based primer is applied, to ensure that any remaining glue residue will not come up through the eventual finish coat of wall paint, causing checkering, or "alligatoring".
Proper preparation is imperative to wallpaper removal, and short-cuts will only cause a visible failure of the paint finish coat.
