Many of us on Cape Cod have been inside homes that have tacky wallpaper. Some of us may even own one of those homes. While it can be a conversation starter, outdated designs can serve to decrease the value of your home and is often an unwelcome sight for you and your family. Our wallpaper removal services can take care it quickly for you.
At Mad Hatter, we have witnessed the joy and relief our customers have experienced when our crews have removed old wallpaper and replaced it with a fresh coat of paint or a more modern, stylized wallpaper that can inspire those once stale living areas.
If your Cape Cod home has unwanted wallpaper, simply painting over it will not suffice. This will seal the wallpaper, making it impossible to remove in the future. And worse, the surface of the wall will not be as smooth as it would have been had you removed the wallpaper in the first place. Painting over wallpaper will not remove any seams, borders, tears and bubbles, making them visible to the eye.
For similar reasons, we recommend removing wallpaper before replacing it with new wallpaper as it will leave your space looking fresh, clean and up-to-date.
Removing wallpaper can be tricky, as you want to ensure the surface underneath is smooth, free of all blemishes, with no residue left behind. This is where Mad Hatter can help. Prior to starting any job, we will ensure that your furniture, floor and outlets are protected. We will remove your paper without the use of chemicals or solvents. And when done, we will wash your walls so they are clear of any and all remnants.
Should there be any damage or blemishes, we will repair those and skim coat the wall to ensure it is smooth and ready for a fresh coat of paint or a new wallcovering.
Unlike your grandmother’s wallpaper, today’s styles are colorful, refreshing and inviting. Wallpaper is often perfect for commercial settings as it is easy to maintain and clean, all while adding a little life to your office space, restaurant, retail store, conference room, hotel or more.
Whether for a home or business, Mad Hatter will install the wallpaper so it is completely smooth, with no bubbles or exposed seams.
