Window frame + Wallpaper = NIGHTMARE!!

Postby xxdevangelxx » Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:43 am


I just got the keys for my first home (yey!) last friday and have been there the last few days ripping up old floor and stripping walls and stuff. Problems is, in one of the rooms, the wallpaper actually goes behind the pvc window frame, so its impossible to strip the wallpaper without bringing the frame away from the wall! Is there any easy way to fix this?

Simply Build It

This is very common with replacement windows.
Just go down the edge of the frame with a stanley knife and strip up to the frame. The paper under the pvc will have to stay there
