ALL FABSCARTE WORKS REQUIRE EXPERT INSTALLERS. THE COMPANY DENIES ANY RESPONSABILITY FOR PROBLEMS DUE TO NOT FOLLOWING THE ISTRUCTIONS.

We remind you to check that patterned wallpaper match your requests and expectations before proceeding to the installation. All Fabscarte works are hand made: the slight potential color variations are the result of a genuine craft. The cutting was done by hand and any minimal imperfections are part of the craftsmanship.

 

SURFACE PREPARATION

The quality of the fina result depends on a good preparation of the surfaces. The wall must be dry, smooth and clean. New plastered and strongly absorbent surfaces must be properly insulated with a layer of an appropriate acrylic resin. It is advisable to cover the walls with raw lining paper, to obtain a suitable surface for the hanging of the wallcover. Specific surfaces: – The wallpaper must not be hung on old layers of wallcover. Where not possible, make sure all layers are properly fixed – When it’s not possible to entirely remove shiny, enameled or paintend surfaces, it is advisable to prepare the surface with an appropriate bonding mortar in order to obtain sufficient cohesion – Avoid using oil paint, because oil could stain the paper – Paper with gold and silver painted backgrounds must not be applied on wall with anti-mould or treated with lime plaster because the alkaline base may demage it.

 

WALLPAPER HANGING

absolute reference to the numbering shown on the attached floor plan. Upon request the trimming will be executed directly by Fabscarte with an additional cost. Some kinds of patterned wallcover have starting indications on the top horizontal edge. The numeration that may be shown on the back of the paper must be strictly followed, in the interest of keeping the pattern order. Before cutting the rools place at least three sheets to verify that the hanging is correct. PASTE It is advisable to use a paste fitting the product type, the installation procedure and the local climate.

 

HANGING PROCEDURE

Apply a coat of paste on the back of the sheet and fold it in order to let the paper soak. Wait 3 to 5 minutes, depending on paper thickness and climate conditions. In detail: – thin paper or humid climate: less soaking time – thick paper or dry climate: more soaking time Apply the wallcover on the wall with an upholstery brush, or spatula, according to the type of paper. Gently apply pressure using a roller or a soft brush. Remove possible paste leaks with a damp sponge. Once applied the wallcover, while still wet, proceed with top and bottom edge trimming.
