Will you provide a free estimate?2017-09-13T13:10:44+00:00

Absolutely! Please keep in mind that there are many factors that can affect an estimate:

  • job location
  • room dimensions and layout
  • type of wallcovering
  • material width
  • pattern repeat
  • pattern match
  • bolt length
  • the condition of the surfaces where the material is to be installed.

Ordinarily, these factors can be determined only through an on-site survey or from accurate drawings and wallpaper specifications.

How do you estimate, by the roll or by the job?2016-01-18T21:17:48+00:00

I estimate by the job, due to the many factors listed above.

What will I receive in your free estimate?2017-03-28T22:33:33+00:00

You will receive a proposal listing the amount of material required, the labor charge and the estimated job duration. Review the proposal carefully and then submit any questions you might have. If the proposal is acceptable, sign, initial and date it in the designated areas and return it. If a down payment is required, it will be specified in the proposal. Payments are tendered by cash, check or money order with final payment due upon job completion. All work is performed by qualified craftsmen.

How quickly can I have my material installed?2017-09-15T11:08:37+00:00

After all of the required material has been delivered to the job site, and after any prerequisite remodeling has been completed, your installation can be scheduled to begin as quickly as possible. All work is normally scheduled between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

How should I care for my new surfaces?2017-09-13T10:49:02+00:00

Allow the new wallcovering to dry and strengthen before hanging pictures or affixing other types of decor. Depending upon environmental factors and the type of material, this may take from hours to days to weeks. In shower or bath areas, always use the exhaust fan to remove steam and moisture which could otherwise cause the material to loosen from the surface, especially near the ceiling. For cleaning, you should follow manufacturer instructions included with the material. In general, naturals may be vacuumed, papers may be sponged lightly with clean water and vinyl may be washed with mild soap and rinsed with clean water.
