Hanging wallcovering is not just about gluing it to the wall!
Unlike many wallcovering installers, at Shotcount we employ a highly structured wallcovering install process. We strictly adhere to our traditional method that has proven itself for decades and yields picture perfect results every time.
Often times wall prep takes longer than the hanging of wallcovering itself.
Most walls have small imperfections and are not perfectly flat. In fact, wallcovering magnifies flaws in the walls. Wall prep is is the most important step to achieve a picture perfect wall.
Our goal of wall prepping is to achieve a smooth and perfectly flat surface. Which requires repairing/patching the drywall from any holes, dents and scratches with drywall compound. When compound is dry it is sanded smooth.
In case the wall has some texturing, it will cause the textures to show on the wallcovering. To address this, we apply a new layer of plaster to cover the textured areas of the wall. That way the textures will not intrude on the wallcovering.
allways The last step in the prep of the wall is to clean the wall by wiping it down with a vinegar solution to remove any debris and dust.
Remember Only after the guidelines mentioned above are completed that the wallcovering installation can begin.
