  • Prepping the Walls for Wallpaper

    CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD suggests priming your walls before applying wallpaper.

    Looking to change the interior painting of your home? If you've lived in your home for a lengthy period of time, then you may find yourself growing tired of the design selections you or your house painters made some time ago. How about livening up your home with wallpaper? With wallpaper, you can play around with new hues and textures. You can even be creative by mixing and matching!

    CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD, a commercial painting company, is your source for house painters that provide outstanding wallpaper installation services. Our commercial painting contractors urge you to not let wallpaper scare you! We know that there may be many negative connotations associated to wallpaper. For instance, we've all seen the television shows or movies that reenact just how much of a hassle wallpaper installations can be. Or have heard people say that wallpaper is drab, ugly, and somewhat tacky. However, in most cases, this is not always true. Wallpaper can look absolutely fantastic!

    What's also great about wallpaper is that it's a dream for house painters to work with-when handled properly anyway. Properly prepping the walls is the most vital component when it comes to a long-lasting wallpaper installation. Prepping the walls is the secret as to why commercial painting companies, such as CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD, are so successful. Our house painters want to remind you to be sure to prime the wall before applying wallpaper as it will create a better seal and make future removal much simpler. Wallpaper doesn't stick to the wall by itself which is why we use a primer so that the wallpaper can adhere to the paint.

    Wallpaper primers are specialty products that prevent the wallpaper itself from softening and permanently becoming a part of the wall. Choosing not to prime the walls just creates a nightmare for if you ever did want to remove it. Wallpaper primers can be either acrylic or oil based and are easily accessible at a home improvement store or commercial painting store.

    You can instantly change the way your home looks by simply using wallpaper. For questions about our commercial painting services, wallpaper installations, the difference between acrylic and oil based primer, or any other painting projects, contact CertaPro Painters of Upper Marlboro, MD! Our teams of house painters are wallpaper installation experts!
