Wallpaper removal is a struggle for many owners of Highlands NC homes. Removing wallpaper is never as easy as it seems and while you may have like the paper you chose at the time you may be ready for something new. Many home buyers see dated wallpaper as something to be removed in a home and while you can simply paint over it this is not something many home decorators would recommend. If you are buying Highlands real estate and wallpaper is turning you away from a home do not despair, you can remove it.
Wallpaper can be removed easily if you know what to do. If the walls were primed before the wallpaper was hung the process will be a smoother one. If you can loosen one corner and pull a full sheet off then the walls have been primed and you will have no problem stripping the paper from the walls. If the process is going to be more difficult there is no need to fret. Water, plenty of it, will help you get the paper off, it will just take patience.
If you are considering adding wallpaper to a wall in your home prime the wall(s) beforehand. This will make its removal far easier when the time comes to change it out for a new style or removing it for painting. Wallpaper does not have to be your nemesis, you can remove it yourself if you have the time and patience to handle the task.
