Wallpapering on dry lined plasterboard

Postby petecronin@btinternet.com » Tue Jun 08, 2010 1:46 pm

The house is a new timber framed build, internally all walls plasterboard and dry lined. I would like to wallpaper a few feature walls. Is there any preparation required. All the walls have received primer and 2 coats of top coat.

These walls will not be required for paint finish again.

You advice would be appreciated.[/b]

no problem - sizing will help a lot, though not essential.
