Curling edges


Postby the2ems » Sat Jul 07, 2007 10:22 am

A couple of years after wallpapering I always find the edges curling out above radiators. Obviously this is because of the heat. Is there any way of preventing this, apart from re-decorating on a more regular basis?

I don't dry clothes on the radiator, and it isn't in a damp enviroment. It's in my lounge.
