Glen is still working on my project but so far I couldn't be happier. He was hired to remove ceramic tiles from 3 rooms and then install porcelain wood-look tiles in the same 3 rooms. I find Glen to be a very conscientious worker. He makes sure his work is done right and cleans up when his day is done. Since this was such a large project he has been at my home for about a week and when I get home from work there has never been a big mess. I would definitely recommend Glen to anyone needing things done around their house and actually already have. Since job is not yet complete I don't have pictures to post but will try to add some later.

Tim removed a section of hardwood floor and replaced with a 'hardwood match'. He did a fantastic job. I wouldn't hesitate to contact him again.

Actually, it is hard to find people who remove old wallpaper. Most companies who install wallpaper, do not offer removal of old paper at all. They will install new paper over the old paper, but not remove it.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best way to remove wallpaper?

There are several proven methods for wallpaper removal; each has its pros and cons, but some are definitely easier. Peeling is usually the least painful, followed by soaking and stripping. Dry-stripping is the next most time-consuming, and steaming the most work. The average wallpaper removal job costs between $360 and $560. The method of removal can affect the cost, as steaming takes longer than peeling and will therefore typically cost more. Peeling wallpaper off is usually the quickest method. To see if your wallpaper can be peeled off, try gently edging up a corner and carefully peeling the paper off the wall in strips. If you can’t peel, then you’ll have to score and strip it, either by dry-stripping or by soaking and then stripping. Plaster walls can withstand moisture and can stand up to soaking and stripping, but drywall should not be soaked. For very stubborn wallpaper, steaming may be necessary, which is time-consuming but effective. If you prefer not to attempt these methods yourself, wallpaper removal pros have the proper tools and experience to quickly take down wallpaper and also repair any damage to your walls.

How much does it cost to remove wallpaper in a room?

The national wallpaper removal cost averages $360-$560, which will typically include multiple rooms. Pros often charge by the square foot to remove egregious wallpaper that is long past its prime. Wallpaper removal cost may range anywhere from 60 cents to $1.50 or more per square foot. A pro may estimate removal costs ranging between $160 and $300 for a medium-sized room. Costs can vary due to ceiling height, and some pros add a skim coat to make repainting or re-papering smoother. Here are some examples of average costs to remove wallpaper:

  • Foyer: 36-120 square feet, $21.60-$180.
  • Powder room: 16-36 square feet, $9.60-$54.
  • Living or dining room: 120-252 square feet, $72-$378.
