    INCREDIBLY SKILLED WALLPAPER HANGER
    I HIGHLY recommend Gyorgy! He is skilled beyond belief. I purchased very pricy glass beaded wallpaper as an accent wall for behind my bed. I was in complete panic mode because I didn't know any wallpaper hangers. I saw a commercial for Thumbtack, and gave it a try. What luck that I found Gyorgy! His work is meticulous - which is exactly what this type of wallpaper required. He studied the instructions and watched the video prior to arrival. I was very impressed with his preparation. I also purchased custom wall plates for the two electrical outlets that would be visible once the furniture arrives. Gyorgy cut around each template for a seamless look. When some of the delicate glass beads fell off one of them, he discarded the entire piece and started over. I could not be more thrilled with his attention to detail. My accent wall is now complete flawlessly thanks to Gyorgy! Not only is he a skilled professional, he is very personable and kind. It was a pleasure spending the day with him!

    Amazing work!
    George does amazing work. He came and wallpapered and painted the nursery my husband and I were preparing for our son. He help me find a wallpaper supplier that could produce the kind of product I was looking for and he was very patient as I changed my mind numerous times on what I wanted in the room. Our apartment is a bit old and the walls were uneven and we even ran into a leak problem (which George was able to identify for me so I could speak to the Super before it became a bigger problem) and through it all he remained professional and his work was outstanding! I will definitely be using him again when we purchase our home!

    Perfection!!
    Absolutely amazing and meticulous work! A true artist!! Had some guests over last night and everyone thought the wallpaper was actually a painting because you can't see a single seam! Quote was slightly higher than the others I received but I knew 78 and Sunny was the one to go with because of the images of past work and the professionalism in the correspondence.. I was not disappointed!! Don't go with the less expensive option when you can have perfection!

    George did an excellent job removing old grass cloth from an accent wall in a bedroom and installing new grass cloth in its place. He promptly replied to my initial Thumbtack inquiry and offered to come see the job for an appraisal at my convenience. I loved the reviews and photos I saw of George's work on the Thumbtack site so we set up a time to meet. He arrived promptly, assessed the job and provided me a quote on the spot. He was friendly, relaxed and professional and gave me advice on where to look for new grass cloth as well as how much to buy. He also sent me a written quote later that evening. When we finally selected a new grass cloth the seller informed us the product was on back-order. George was patient during the many weeks we waited for the new grass cloth to arrive and made himself available for the installation as soon as it arrived. The entire job was completed within about 5 hours and we love the results. I would absolutely recommend George and his work to anyone.

He is meticulous in his work, shows up when he says he will and works very hard until he is finished. He stripped my walls, smoothed out all imperfections and primed them before applying the paper. He is also a very friendly and professional person. I would highly recommend him!!! Thank you again Gyorgy for the wonderful job you did - my bathrooms look amazing!!

    My experience with George was everything you could hope for. He came by the apartment to assess the project and helped me to determine how much wallpaper I needed to order (this was my first wallpaper project). As I had questions, George was quick to respond. He was punctual both for the assessment, as well as the main project, as well. Finally, the quality of matching and overall attention to detail was strong. George takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows. I couldn't recommend him more enthusiastically.

    Gyorgy is a real pro! Well above expectations. From the very first contact, all the way through the completion of my project (a mural installation), his professionalism, skill, and attention to detail stood out. The result is top quality. It is rare to find this level of excellence these days. I would recommend him without hesitation for the most demanding projects - he is an expert. Still, his quote was very competitive. In addition to the mural, I also asked him to fix a few cracks on my other walls, which he did with great skill: the result is perfect. I am impressed. Finally, Gyorgy is nice, easy to communicate with, clean, punctual, reliable. Really, a great find. I am so happy with his service that I am now planning on hanging wallpaper in my bedroom, too. I look forward to working with Gyorgy again.

We had a unique wallpaper and design in mind - Gyorgy was able to work with me to make the vision come true! The quote was very competitive and included everything. He is professional. The team is very thorough and clean. The work was completed in a timely manner - as discussed. I will most definitely be using Gyorgy on my next project!

He made himself available quickly and gave various times he could come work on the project according to my schedule. He did an amazing job hanging the wallpaper (came out perfect!) and arrived at my building on time (early actually) and completely prepared.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We answer every phone, text or email enquiry and provide fast, free no obligation quotes. Our prices are competitive. While at times we do get booked out, once we commit to a time and date for your booking it becomes our top priority to ensure we’re there on time and complete the work when we say we will. We do work nights and weekends too if necessary for those ultra critical dates or functions. For businesses we can offer high quality finishes with quick turnarounds, out of office hours to create minimal disruption to your work force or your customers.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Your expectations is our endeavor and assured the finish will be stunning. We are experienced in wallcovering installation ranging from the more conventional wallpapers to more complex larger murals, silk, seagrass, paper, velvet coated, fabric, woven, suede, vinyl, grasscloth, silk hessians, fabrics, glass bead, hand printed papers, bamboo, leather, digital prints, metallic, commercial vinyl, non woven.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
We provide a comprehensive service for preparing your walls and ceilings for painting. We make all cracks and defects on you walls disappear, allowing you to have a perfectly clear and smooth “canvas” for your new look. We have the experience to know how to remove your wall paper most efficiently and we are committed to restoring your walls to their absolute best. Preparation of the walls is so important even though they will be covered, bumps and nicks will still show through. We can advise on materials, adhesives, paints, wallpapers, etc
What types of customers have you worked with?
We work with a wide range of clients including interior designers, architects, photographers from small residential to large commercial jobs.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Wallpaper calculation to make sure correct amount of rolls ordered prior the installation. If your wallpaper is from overseas, if could take 6-8 weeks to arrive. On handmade wallpapers the pattern may not match precisely even within the roll. Always order more than enough at the same time. The next batch may be slightly different. Order extra rolls for future repairs. Wallpaper WILL NOT cover defects in walls. Walls should be fully prepared beforehand. Walls have differing porous attributes, they will need to be primed/sized first. If the walls are not completely flat, the wallpaper will not hang flat. Consider a plasterer to skim the walls first. To reduce the effects of contraction/expansion of the wallpaper due to weather/air conditioning/heating, it is recommended priming/sizing the walls the same colour of the base colour of the wallpaper. Seams will be less visible. After hanging DO NOT TOUCH wallpaper during drying time. Touching the wallpaper during this time WILL damage it. Allow to fully dry, 2 days normally, air bubbles, visible joints will disappear in the drying time. Do not use air conditioning/heating during drying time. Allow to dry naturally.
