Kelowna Drywall Repair: Why Hire Professionals To Remove Wallpaper

Why hire professionals to remove wallpaper

If you have old wallpaper on your walls and want to remove it to give your space a fresh, new look, it’s a lot harder than it looks. Wallpaper is notoriously difficult and time-consuming to remove. The best course of action is to hire a pro to take wallpaper off so your walls can be a blank canvas for your new decor. Handyman Connection offers drywall services in Kelowna including wallpaper removal and painting. Here’s why we recommend using a professional for wallpaper removal.

Get It Done Right the First Time

There’s a lot more to wallpaper removal than simply peeling it off. If the wallpaper has been on the walls for many years, it can be hard to remove in one step. After removing the wallpaper, there may also be damage left behind to the drywall that would need additional smoothing and home repairs.

Contractors can take on this job and get it right the first time. Homeowners that try to tackle a stubborn wallpaper removal job may end up causing more problems to their drywall. A DIYer may also have to try to remove the wallpaper multiple times if it’s really stuck on the wall. Instead of struggling with this tedious job, homeowners should use a professional who can determine the best way to remove old wallpaper.

Have the Proper Tools and Materials

Another reason to hire a pro is because of the specialized tools and materials that may be necessary for a complete wallpaper removal job. It’s not as easy as just peeling it away without any type of chemicals or tools. Homeowners may not have all of these tools available, and it may be expensive to buy everything that is needed for this job.

A contractor will have the right tools and materials to refresh your walls. They will have ladders, scoring tools, spray bottles and putty knives for the removal. Drywall pros also have access to professional-grade chemicals that break down wallpaper glue. Because some of these chemicals are toxic, contractors also have the right type of protective gear and materials to keep their workers and your belongings safe.

Save Time and Energy

While it may be less expensive to remove wallpaper on your own, it will take a lot of time and energy. Some homeowners don’t realize the time commitment they will need to remove wallpaper. This type of job may take days or weeks instead of one or two days by a professional.

Scraping and peeling off wallpaper is also a very labour-intensive job that most homeowners don’t want to take on. Imagine coming home after a long day of work and having to spend the rest of your evening scraping off wallpaper bit by bit. Most people are too busy to give up those precious hours after work for a tedious home improvement job.
