Painting and decorating


Wallpapering shall be finished to provide an even and consistent appearance, to established levels of workmanship.

Where wallpaper or coverings are used:

  • surfaces should be dry, even and smooth before wallpaper is applied
  • surfaces should be sized or sealed as necessary
  • adhesives should be in accordance with the wallpaper manufacturer’s recommendations
  • they should be properly aligned and neatly fixed
  • electrical switch plates should be temporarily removed and the papering accurately trimmed so that it will tuck behind the fitting upon completion.
