Wallpaper Removal


If you're looking to remove wallpaper, we can help you with that as well. Removing wallpaper has the potential to damage your walls. But we use the safest methods, as well as after-care like sanding any rough patches, filling in any holes, and ensuring the space is ready for its new life.

Types of Wallpaper


Wallpaper installation method differs depending upon the type of wallpaper. Modern peel-and-stick is tempting because of its supposed ease, but we can tell you it's one of the most difficult to install because it clings to itself like a giant saran wrap nightmare. Peel-and-stick only applies to perfectly smooth walls, so if you go that route make sure your walls are thoroughly prepped. If your walls are very slightly textured, non-pasted paper is your best option. That way the correct amount of wallpaper paste can be painted on to compensate for the divots. That being said, we always sand the walls anyway to ensure there are no air bubbles. Heavily textured walls definitely need to be sanded before attempting to hang any wallpaper.

Whatever your beautiful and chic home dreams are, we can help bring them to life. We install all kinds of wallpaper: vinyl wallpaper, English pulp, silk, grasscloth,  paper, or a full mural, we’re there to help. As long as you’re in the area! We service Raleigh, Carey, Kightdale, Garner, and the rest of Wake County. If you are out of our service zone, we can connect you with someone else you can trust.

"Respectful and clean"

I've had terrible experiences with "handyman" people coming into my house in the past. They left an enormous bill and a huge mess. But Raleigh Wallpaper was GREAT! No mess..... It took them only a few hours to wallpaper my bathroom. They may use me as a reference.

"They save me so much stress"

I flip homes for a living, and so I need a lot of wallpaper removed, and new wallpaper installed. I've gone to Raleigh Wallpaper for this for years and they've always been a pleasure. Even though their team has changed a little over the years, everyone is always fantastic and the owner knows me by name and sends me a Christmas card every year. At this point, I don't see a need to go anywhere else for wallpaper. All my homes look great.

"Totally different house"

My home had wallpaper from the 70's in nearly every room. Way too big a job for me to do alone!!! Raleigh Wallpaper was prompt and professional. Do recommend.

Wallpaper Installation

  • Reach Out

    Give us a call so we can hear about your project. Is it your bathroom, kitchen, or maybe your restaurant's walls? We do wallpaper installation in Raleigh, Carey, Garner, Knightdale, and all of Wake Forest County.

  • Assess

    The more information you tell us about your project, the better. Square footage, ceiling height, wall condition, and number of rooms are all things we would love to hear about. If you need help determining these factors, just let us know and we can assist you.

  • Room Prep

    With any remodeling, it's important to protect everything else. We'll move all furniture away from the walls. After putting down a drop cloth, we will prep the walls by sanding, spackling, and priming. 

  • Hang

    Once the walls are ready, we prepare the paste. Depending on the kind of wallpaper you have, this could involve booking the wallpaper, pasting the wall, or slowly removing peel-and-stick. We then carefully cut out corners, outlets, and trim. If we're spraying water to activate glue, we're careful not to get it on your floor.

  • Clean

    We leave nothing behind except a gorgeous new wall! If we pack it in, we pack it out, including drywall dust, paint flakes and wallpaper scraps.

Removal Service

  • Reach Out

    Tell us all about the wallpaper you want gone. If it was installed in the last 20 years, it should come off easily. Earlier wallpaper can be harder to remove. The more you can tell us, the better.

  • Assess

    There are a few important things to know about your wallpaper project. Square footage, ceiling height, wall condition, and number of rooms are all things we would love to hear about. If you need help determining these factors, just let us know and we can assist you.

  • Room Prep

    We want your furniture and floors to be safe from the wallpaper removal process. To protect your home, we lay down painters cloths. We also ensure all furniture is safely out of the way.

  • Remove

    The wallpaper removal process is different depending on your wallpaper. Some paper will come right off, others need to be dampened, and others need a little more coaxing. Some wallpaper should not be removed, and instead needs to be sanded and spackled.

  • Clean

    As you can imagine, wallpaper removal is a messy, messy process. But you would never know about the chaos after we leave! No scrap is left behind- we clean it all.

Wallpaper Repair Service

  • In case something went wrong

    Wallpaper is best replaced every 2-15 years, depending on the quality, composition, and design. But its life can be preserved through some TLC. 

  • Quick Fix

    Is your wallpaper peeling, but you want it to stick around? Wallpaper older than 15 years can crack and bubble around seams, windowsills and doorframes. Improperly installed wallpaper can form bubbles almost immediately. Don't worry- that won't happen with us. But here are some tips on fixing your wallpaper.

  • Dust

    The peeling corner may have debris in it. Dust out any paint, plaster, or dust that has collected. If any plaster has crumbled away, now is a good time to fill in any damage with a drywall putty. Wait for it to dry before proceeding.

  • Re-glue

    Use a paintbrush to coat some wallpaper adhesive on the back of the exposed wallpaper. Gently press it to the wall, lightly smooth with a flat edge, and allow to dry. You're done!

Pricing

  • Please just call us

    There is a real live human in Raleigh who is a wallpaper installation expert, who can't wait to talk to you (hint: It's us!). We're the wallpaper geeks. Every project varies so much, you really just have to call us.

  • Texture

    For proper adherence to walls, the surface must be smooth and debris-free. Popcorn ceilings and orange peel walls are not good textures for wallpaper. We sand down to what is called a "level 5 smooth".

  • Square footage

    A small project would be a headboard wall in a bedroom, kitchen backsplash, bathrooms, and cupboards.  Medium projects involve all walls in a room, and large projects can go up to multiple rooms. If you are a business looking to wallpaper many rooms, please see our business page.

  • Existing Wallcovering

    In order to avoid creating the wall-of-one-million-layers, we make sure any previous wallcovering is either removed or properly prepped before beginning. The state of your walls are a huge factor in price and time, so make sure to let us know what your situation is.

  • Furniture

    If you need large furniture moved from the room, we are more than happy to take care of that for you. It will cost a little extra depending on how much time that takes.
