Initial Walkthrough

Working alongside the client, our specialists here at CertaPro Painters will identify key points around the house to focus on. Some clients may only want Wallpaper removed from a single room, while others want a total and complete removal process. With thorough communication and understanding, the CertaPro team is here to help any client regardless of the scope of their project.

Remove Wallpaper

The Wallpaper is removed by gently lifting the paper so we do not damage the walls of your home. The difficulty of this process is dependent on how long the wallpaper has been applied and how loose the wallpaper has become. Assuming speed is a priority, our team is well trained in using steamers to create moisture on the wall's surface to aid in wallpaper removal.

This part of the process can become lengthy and time consuming depending on if the client attempted to remove the wallpaper themself beforehand. For example, digging a blade too deeply into a wall to try and remove the wallpaper, may lead to indentations on the drywall that have to be repaired before painting can begin. From surface abrasions to other imperfections, the CertaPro team is ready to apply a skim coating and begin sanding as soon as the wallpaper removal has been completed.

The wall is cleaned and a fresh coat of paint primer is applied. Primer serves as a foundation and base coat before proper painting can begin. It also protects the surface from further abrasions that may necessitate repairs. This step is why the initial assessment is so important, so we can start priming in preparation for the painting planned.
