Why You Should Remove Wallpaper Instead of Painting Over It
A fresh coat of high-quality paint is a simple and cost-effective way to change the look of your home. If your home has wallpaper currently covering the walls, it can be tempting to simply paint right over it. However, most home improvement experts agree that wallpaper should be removed before repapering, painting, or texturing your walls. Painting over existing wallpaper can cause damage to your walls and lead to more work down the road.
Common problems resulting from painting over wallpaper include:
- Damage on the wallpaper often shows through the paint
- The texture and seams of the wallpaper will be visible
- The moisture of the paint can saturate the paper
- The paint can loosen the paper and cause it to shrink, peel, bubble, or detach
- Wallpaper that has been painted over is messier and more complicated to remove
In general, you should not plan to remove your wallpaper prior to resurfacing your walls unless you have a particular reason to leave it on. For example, your walls have multiple layers of wallpaper or were not properly primed when the wallpaper was installed. In these cases, you may want to refrain from taking down your wallpaper. Our experts can help you determine if it would be better to leave the paper up or to remove it.

How Long Does It Take to Remove Wallpaper?
There are several factors that can impact the duration of your wallpaper removal project, including the amount of paper to be stripped, the condition of your wall surface, and the method of removal. Typically, it takes longer to remove torn or damaged wallpaper, or paper that has been painted over or repapered. There is also the time involved in restoring drywall and plaster after the paper has been removed. OmegaPro Painters is often able to complete wallpaper removal in a day, although larger projects may take longer.
