Wall paper border removal.

Wall paper removal in North Attleboro, MA.
Not all wall paper is the same when it comes to removal. Usually the top layer is the most difficult and the backing is the easiest to remove after wetting it down.

But on this job it was the opposite. The backing was extremely difficult to remove. The original installer must have used a lot more paste than was necessary to apply this wall paper border.

After removal of wall paper, Jcb Painting, machine sanded to remove all left over bits of paper and glue, patched and sanded again and then primed and painted. It's tough to price this kind of job. You never know what to expect.
No two wall paper borders are the same when it comes time to remove for painting. It's a lot of physical work plus a lot of clean up. One of the hardest things to do when painting a room.
