What effect does heat have when hanging wallpaper?
all wallpapers should be allowed to dry naturally in a well ventilated room. drying times will vary depending on wall surface, adhesive, atmospheric conditions, etc. any attempt to accelerate the drying process with heat may cause the wallpaper to dry out too quickly. this can result in shrink back (edges opening up).
What is the difference between pattern "repeat" and pattern "match"?
the pattern repeat is the distance measured before the same part of the design is reproduced on the wallpaper. however, the pattern match refers to the matching half of the design (assuming most wallpapers are trimmed through a motif to make hanging easier) falling in relation to the opposite side of the wallpaper.
What are the benefits of cross lining?
this is where the lining paper is hung horizontally instead of vertically. it is recommended this way, firstly, to avoid the temptation to use a join as a plumb line starting point for hanging the wallpaper onto and, secondly, to avoid the possibility of a join being hung on top of another join. this is very hard to hide and may cause a problem.
When should lining paper be used?
using lining paper helps to provide a good base to paper onto. it will result in a much better finish and so we would recommend always using it.
What paste should i use?
generally most commercial wallpaper pastes are suitable for use with our wallpapers. if you are in any doubt always follow the advise given on the manufacturers label. we would also recommend that the same paste is used for both the lining paper and the wallpaper where possible.
