Wallpapering a conservatory - temperature changes and paper problems

Postby ianmarkin » Mon Jan 07, 2008 9:09 pm

Hello, I have a large conservatory in my Garden (it's not attached to the house) Throughout the year it gets either very cold in winter and really hot in the summer. With this in mind can I wallpaper inside there? Would the extreme temperature changes cause the paper problems? Thanks Ian

hi, you should be ok as long as there is no damp.
your paste must be one with fungiside added,(most do) make sure your paper can be used with this paste. plus add some pva to your paste it will cope with temp change better.

Thanks, I'm finally getting round to doing the wallpaper. How much PVA do I need to add to the paste? I have a bag of paste enough to hang twenty rolls which is plenty, in fact I'm only using 6 rolls. The paper is durable vinyl.
