How to Hang Wallpaper

 

Paste the Wall

Please read these instructions carefully before hanging your wallpaper.

This information has been supplied in good faith, but without guarantee, and on the understanding that the installer will have decorating knowledge. We would recommend professional assistance to achieve the best results when hanging our wallcoverings.

1. Inspect Each Roll

Before cutting and hanging your wallcovering, ensure that all rolls are in good condition, have no shade variation and that no other faults are present. Please ensure that there are enough rolls to complete the job.

Do not assume that the wallcovering will come off the roll the correct way up. Always refer to the pattern book or check with the retailer. Examination before hanging is the buyer’s responsibility. No claim can be accepted for hanging incorrect wallcoverings or after wallcoverings have been cut and hung showing defects which were apparent at the time of hanging. 

2. Preparation

Walls should be clean, dry and even. Remove any old wallcovering and loose paint and scrape off powdery, flaky surfaces. Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper. Absorbent surfaces should be prepared with an oil based primer ensuring it dries completely before continuing. New plaster should be allowed to dry out completely. For best results we recommend walls are cross lined using good quality lining paper. Lining should be allowed to dry completely before hanging the wallcovering.

3. Pasting and Hanging

This is a ‘paste the wall' product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallcovering. A premium quality tub adhesive, or an equivalent good quality pH neutral, solvent-free, fungicide protected, light grade adhesive should be used.

DO NOT USE SELF-MIX ADHESIVES. ALL PURPOSE AND HEAVY DUTY PASTES ARE NOT SUITABLE.

Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang 1 length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the roll. Butt joins and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles. Avoid squeezing paste out of joins and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller. No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface of the paper and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst handling the wallcovering. Paste will damage the surface, Jupiter 10 cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste. Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged off whilst moist, using a clean, damp sponge. Trim top and bottom with a sharp knife or scissors. Ensure the wallcovering is firmly adhered, as in the event of fire loose wallcoverings can contribute to the hazard. After hanging 2 or 3 lengths, inspect the result to ensure that no shading or other faults are present. No claim for hanging costs can be accepted once more than one roll has been hung.
