  • Smooth Wall Restoration – We address any uneven texture, nail pops or small holes revealed once wallpaper is stripped completely, preparing your canvas for the next chapter flawlessly.
  • Protective Priming/Sealing – Before leaving, stripped walls undergo premium sealing to establish an optimal base for painting or new wallpaper adherence down the line.

Top 5 Benefits of Professional Wallpaper Removal

By leaving wallpaper removal to the professionals at HBP Painting Contractors, you can avoid the headaches of figuring out the tedious process on your own and have peace of mind knowing your walls will be left undamaged.

Taking down wallpaper incorrectly can destroy your drywall underneath. To do it right, you must slowly saturate the paper until the adhesive releases its grasp, all while not soaking water into the walls.

Adhesives can become near impossible to separate over time without causing tearing or holes in drywall. Does this sound like your idea of how to spend a weekend? Probably not.

Our crews are equipped with top-of-the-line commercial-grade steamers, precise scoring tools, and environmentally friendly, non-toxic removal solutions, ensuring the wallpaper peels away smoothly and efficiently.

Our team is well-versed in managing a variety of wallpaper styles, ranging from the straightforward peel-and-stick to the more intricate and robust heavily woven fabrics, ensuring expert care for every project.

Our skilled professionals meticulously repair any dings or nail pops after the wallpaper is completely removed, expertly preparing your walls to be the ideal canvas for vibrant new paints or stylish wallpaper.

Wallpaper Removal Cost Considerations

While stripping wallpaper costs depend partly on square footage, the key factors include:

  • Wallpaper Type – Thicker specialty papers take longer to penetrate and detach
  • Adhesive Age – Vintage glue bonds require more coaxing to release cleanly
  • Wall Composition – Meticulous plaster may need extra handling over average drywall
  • Current Wall Condition – Severe pre-existing flaws underneath drive the price up for smoothing
  • Regional Labor Rates – Pay reflects expertise levels in medium vs high-cost-of-living cities

By considering these factors influencing price as we assess your unique project from start to finish, our quotes reflect the true scope accurately. Reach out today to transform your home or business walls!

Can You Paint Over Wallpaper?

For smooth wallpapers tightly adhered to surfaces in non-wet areas, painting is possible with proper precautionary steps like sealing seams and edges before applying primer and then painting. But textured or damaged papers should get stripped completely.
