Hi! This is Jim Tiner, professional paper hanger, and this is how to hang wallpaper. Part of how to hang wallpaper is estimating and once your estimate or your material comes in, it's time to check your wallpaper. Take the wallpaper out of your package, make sure there is no damage to the edges or any other part of the wallpaper. If there is not, next thing you look at is the label to make sure the numbers are the same. These numbers indicate the type of pattern and the Run number.
After that, you'll take your paper out of the roll, open it up and we are going to be looking through the first 6-8 feet of this wallpaper. We'll be looking for any obvious damage. You might want to check this with your partner to make sure you don't miss anything, but if there is any obvious defects, you'll find them in the first 6-8 feet. Next, after you've checked you wallpaper, we'll be talking about preparation; preparing the walls to receive the wallpaper.
