Wallpaper Removal | J. Stevens Painting

Should You Remove Your Wallpaper for the Winter Season? 

With the transitioning of seasons comes the need to update the interior look of your home. Whether that means giving your kitchen a fresh coat of paint, buying a few new decorations for the dining room, or stripping down your wallpaper, there is something about a new season that inspires many people to try new things with their choice of décor.

As the trees begin shedding their brilliant colors to prepare for the coming cold, it’s a good time to start thinking about removing your wallpaper for the winter. Although it’s not an easy task, a professional team of painters in Canton, Georgia can help you get the job done.

Why Removing Your Wallpaper is a Good Idea

Generally speaking, wallpaper is a rather outdated look when it comes to interior home design. Getting rid of it in favor of a color palette that complements the other rooms in your home will give it a modern look and make it aesthetically appealing.

Wallpaper Removal is Not an Easy Task 

Changing up your wall décor choice from wallpaper to paint isn’t as easy as simply tearing off a few sheets of paper, unfortunately. In addition to being time-consuming, there are a number of methods required to begin the wallpaper removal process, each varying in difficulty depending on the type of wallpaper you have.

For example, there is dry-stripping wallpaper, which is specifically designed to make the removal process easy. But if your wallpaper is made from foil or vinyl, don’t expect the process to finish up quickly. These can take significantly longer to remove and the procedure is much more complicated.

Additionally, after you strip the wallpaper, sometimes you find multiple layers of wallpaper underneath; and sometimes you accidentally damage the drywall in the process. All of these are risks you take when you decide to handle the removal process yourself – and if you aren’t experienced, you could end up with an even bigger mess on your hands.

Switching From Wallpaper to Nice, Fresh Paint Doesn’t Have to Be a Pain

It’s not all bad news, though. You can spare yourself a lot of frustration and wasted time by having a professional painting company handle the wallpaper removal, as well as the wall repair (if needed) and the subsequent paint job.
