Background: My fiancé and I purchased a condo in downtown Pittsburgh in late November of 2014. We were ending our rental-lease at another location in downtown on December 31, 2014, and had a move-in date planned for the end of December. We planned to contract a complete interior makeover of the condo before moving in, so we had a deadline of a few weeks to get it done. Augustine Painting came in and completed a high-quality project on 1600 square feet of condominium living space for us, including removing all wallpaper (every room), painting all walls/trim in the condo, repairing damaged walls and electrical plates, repairing damaged doors/trim/fixtures, and assisting in repairing appliances, all while beating our deadline. Communication: Ken responded within hours after we contacted him on Thumbtack, and he was able to come directly to our condo within 48 hours to give us a quote and overview of his services. He was highly personable, professional, to the point, and upfront with any issues or concerns that he had as we made the initial walk through. Following the walk through, he and his wife then provided us with an easy to follow and competitively priced proposal which we accepted. Ken and his crew began working immediately. He kept me informed daily on what exactly was being done, making sure to be straight forward and thorough in his communications. He was also specific, upfront, and reasonable regarding anything that he felt was out of scope from our original contract. We had Ken perform a little more work that we had originally planned due to some unforeseen circumstances, and he quickly provided us with additional contracts/documents of scope where needed. Throughout the process, Ken exceeded our expectations in his responsiveness. If one of us called him and he was unable to answer it immediately, he would almost always give us a call back within minutes. Quality: Our unit was originally designed and decorated in the mid-1980s, so there was faded, peeling, flower-covered wallpaper throughout the condo. The first project was for Ken to remove all of this in a timely manner. To our pleasure, most of it was removed within a few days. To specifically point out Ken’s handiness and versatility, we had one bathroom in the unit which had very thick, hard glue beneath the wallpaper. Ken was unable to use chemicals or steam to remove it, so he had several of his associates sand and detail the bathroom before painting it. It turned just as faultless as the rest of the condo when it was all said and done. The second project was painting, which was also done in a precise and high quality matter. After Ken had finished the initial painting, he allowed us to go to the condo to inspect it. He gave us a blue roll of tape, and he told us to put a small piece anywhere that we wanted a touch up or found a splatter. To our pleasure, we found only a few trouble spots which were corrected the next day. Summary: Overall, we were 100% satisfied with the work that Augustine Painting provided us with. I would recommend Ken to anyone looking to contract interior wallpaper removal or painting.

KMC was fast and did a great job. They forgot to put in cost of materials in their quote, but we worked it out on the first day of the job.

      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.
      • Family room: 192-384 square feet, $115.20-$576.
      • Bedroom: 100-224 square feet, $60-$336.
      • Guest bath: 45-84 square feet, $27-$126.
      • Master bedroom: 168-384 square feet, $100.80-$576.
      • Master bath: 54-160 square feet, $32.40-$240.

      Once the old wallpaper is gone, the average cost to install new wallpaper is $240-$350.
