At what stage of the renovation is it most appropriate to lay wallcoverings? 2022-10-31

In the final stages of decoration, mistakes are often easy to occur. For example, the basement film pollutes the floor and door pockets, the wallcovering is broken and polluted, and the uneven wall surface causes too much gap between the wallcovering, skirting line, and door pocket, etc. Although it is not a big problem, but it affects the appearance. These problems are caused by the unreasonable arrangement of the construction time of the wallcovering in the decoration process. So, when is it more appropriate to lay wallcoverings?


01The treatment of wall and metope is the first

The quality of wall base treatment not only determines whether the construction personnel can paste the products smoothly, but also directly determines the quality of pasting and the service life of wall materials. Although it is sometimes time-consuming, it is not worth the loss if we ignore the basic treatment of the wall, which causes problems such as wall mildew and internal bubbles. Wall treatment shall be as follows:

① Do a good job of waterproofing

Wall seepage is a big taboo, to prevent wall seepage should do a good job of waterproof engineering. Here is a special emphasis on the wall next to the bathroom, the wall in the bathroom must be waterproof, so as not to make the wallcovering affected by the humidity of the bathroom.

② Ensure flatness

If the wall is pitted, it will not only increase the construction difficulty, but also difficult to ensure the construction quality, affecting the appearance. Therefore, the flatness of the wall is very important. The method to judge whether the wall is flat is extremely simple, which can be observed with the naked eye, or observed with the help of an incandescent lamp in the corner of the wall, or you can lean a long stick against the wall to see whether there is a gap.

02There are seven conditions for laying wallcoverings

Wallcovering construction is the last process of house decoration and hard decoration, and the beginning of soft decoration. It should be carried out after all hardware, such as woodworking, painting, water and electricity, plastering, and cleaning are completed.

NO.1 The floor and skirting line are installed

① Avoid making the wallcovering dirty by laying the keel, sawing wood, etc. when laying the floor.

② Avoid vibration when installing the skirting line, which will cause the wallcovering to separate from the wall surface, resulting in wallcovering bubbling.

③Avoid a large amount of dust pollution and damage to the wallcovering when cutting the baseboard.

④ Generally, putty will not be applied to the bottom of the wall, and the wallcovering cannot be cut neatly after laying on it first. After a long time, it is easy to warp the edge and cause the wallcovering to roll up.

⑤ Avoid the skirting line from sealing the wallcovering with glass glue, so that the water molecules in the wall cannot be discharged, resulting in mildew on the wallcovering at the skirting line.

⑥After the skirting line is installed, the straightness of the wall and the skirting line may not be enough or there may be gaps. , After paving the wallcovering, it has the effect of covering up the gap.

NO.2 Door cover and door installed

Installing the door first can avoid the damage and dirt of the wallcovering, and facilitate the repair of the paint. If paint repair is carried out after the wallcovering is pasted (the gap between the door pocket and the wall and the gap between the skirting line), the wallcovering will be dirty. The size of the door may be different. If the size is too small, stick the wallcovering first, and there will be blank after the door is installed; If it is fully pasted, it is easy to pull the wallcovering when installing the door, causing damage to the wallcovering.

NO.3 Wall wardrobe installed

If you want to choose a custom wardrobe, you should prepare the wardrobe first, so that the part of the wardrobe does not need to be pasted with wallcoverings, and the measurement of wallcoverings is more accurate.

NO.4 Wood is well painted

You can't paste the wallcovering first, and then do the wood paint. Because wood paint will be atomized during construction, the paint will stick to the wallcovering, and the finished product should be protected during paint construction, especially the surrounding walls such as cabinets, doors, and partitions should be pasted with protective films. If it is atomized onto the wall, there is no guarantee for the construction quality of the wallcovering, and problems are prone to occur.

NO.5 Air conditioning hole is well drilled

① Avoid punching holes to cause damage to the wallcovering.

② Avoid the vibration of the wall when punching holes and cause the wallcovering to fall off.

③ Avoid dust contaminating the wallcovering when punching holes.

NO.6 Curtain hanging rod holes shall be drilled

The position of the curtain hanging rod support is well designed, and the holes are well drilled to avoid the contamination of the wallcovering surface by punching in the later stage.

NO.7 Clean up well

Preliminary cleaning is mainly to clean up stubborn stains such as construction waste, doors, windows, floors and other glue marks in the home, and wallcovering construction will not produce such garbage, so the wallcovering should be pasted after preliminary cleaning.

After doing the above steps and then pasting the wallcovering, many problems can be avoided! Did you learn it?
