My wallpaper is peeling along the joins. Any thoughts?

Postby redgannet » Fri Apr 23, 2010 12:45 pm

Hi, my wallpaper is peeling along the vertical joins. Would this be due to a poor paste mix or poor application or.....?
Any thoughts on how to refix?
I have tried re-moistening, squeezing paste under the peels and using a join roller, but they still won't stick.
All advice and tips gratefully received.
Thank you

Hi, what surface did you put the paper on ie, gloss paint bare plasterboard etc and did you size the walls first. Let us know and we may be able to give more ideas on how to put it right.
