Wallcover and Wallpaper Hanging
Wallcover and wallpaper hanging is a dying art. Unfortunately this is fact, not fiction.
Wallpaper and wallcover hanging used to be VERY common in the United States.
There was a time period over the last couple of decades, however, where wallpaper and wallcoverings just had not seemed as popular as they once were.
As a natural by-product of this phenomena, the skilled wallpaper and wallcovering hangers of years ago became fewer and fewer as they retired, passed on, etc.
The challenge that our industry has these days is that wallpapering and wallcoverings are making a bit of a comeback…
Folks who have always had wallpaper or wallcoverings in their homes and businesses, and have never succumbed to changing over to painting their walls, are updating their wallpaper and/or their wallcoverings to today’s modern styles.
Many people are accenting certain walls in their homes and businesses as well as wallpapering or wallcovering a certain percentage of their rooms (1 out of 10, 3 out of 7, etc.).
There is more variety of wallpaper and wallcoverings today than there ever has been. Wallpaper and wallcoverings imported from Italy and other places in Europe and around the world is EXTREMELY popular among those that have the desire and the means for this type of luxury.
The reason why this is such a challenge is that although wallpapering and wallcoverings seems like they are making a REAL comeback, there are fewer skilled paper hangers today than most likely there ever have been!!
This is a problem!
Adding to the dilemma is that there are many people out there who claim that they can hang wallpaper or wallcovering but when they attempt to do it, the results are not quite what the people hiring them to hang had in mind…

Why is it a BAD Idea to Caulk the Gaps in Between Shingle Siding?
