Before you start
Please read these instructions carefully before hanging this wallpaper. A professional decorator should be used.
Before hanging, check that rolls are undamaged, that the product code and batch reference are the same for each roll and that all colours match with no other faults are present. Please ensure that there are enough rolls to complete the job.
Do not assume that the wallpaper will come off the roll the correct way up. Always refer to the pattern reference or contact us at email@example.com
It is the responsibility of the decorator to ensure the wallpaper is correct and, during hanging, to check there are no visible faults. No claim for hanging costs in excess of one roll will be accepted. In the event of any complaint, please quote the reference and batch number on the label.
Non-Woven Wallpaper Hanging Instructions
Check the label included with your roll(s) for the match point.
The wallpaper matches edge to edge with the next drop to form the pattern repeat.
The wallpaper can be matched edge to edge at any point.
The wallpaper is lowered on the second drop to create a diagonal effect pattern repeat.
To prevent white edges showing at the seams, dark coloured wallpapers may need their edges colouring with slightly lighter chalk or pastel.
-Walls should be dry, clean and even.
-Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
-Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.
-For best results we recommend that walls are cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion.
The lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wallpaper.
Pasting and Hanging
- This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallpaper
- A good quality, solvent-free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.
- Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper.
- Butt joints and use a decorator brush to smooth down the wallpaper, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
- Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
- No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wallpaper.
- The paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
- Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
- Wide width wallpapers, grasscloth and textile wallpapers are supplied untrimmed with a 10mm overlap to each edge for a double cut on installation. The selvedges should be removed with scissors before hanging to allow pattern matching. The overlap should be cut through (both drops) with a sharp blade and metal edge at a slight angle (mitre) – use a new blade for each drop as a dull blade will tear the wallpaper. Remove both trimming strips and brush flat (allowing for the angle of the cut) for a perfect join.
No claim for hanging costs will be accepted for goods in excess of one roll.
