Wallpaper Hanging Contract


I am hanging wallpaper more often it seems and I think it would be a good practice to have a homeowner sign an agreement after hanging three strips before I complete a room.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of where to find a sample contract for this situation or what I should at least include in such a contract. If nothing else I will contact a lawyer and get something drafted.
Any help would be appreciated.

I wouldnt install one sheet without a contract. By the yard or by the roll, your time is valuable.

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


perhaps the real question is what to say in it. We are not liable for the customers selection of product. If there is a flaw or non conforming pattern that is not obvious or obvious and consistantly wrong we are not liable for the cost of removal or replacement. That'd be my first fear, alot of papers say unroll and inspect for flaws. I admit I checked a few silkscreened ones over the years but say a black background , can ya really tell till it's up?, or washable where does it say you can't wipe it with rag as you scrub off the glue at eyelevel. Hands up if you always check the roll and unwind checking for flaws!!!!! We should do a poll it'd be a hoot.

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


In your quote or invoice that you use to start the work. You can have your terms.
What your asking would only take a paragraph stating a minimal cost if after 3 strips you do not want to continue with selection or if there is flawed wallpaper. Have them sign that before you start work. The next paragraph would state you have viewed 3 strips of wallpaper installed and I ok the complete wallpaper Installation based on the 3 strips. You can have this paragraph for each room or material. Hope this helps

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


If you really have to do this, push-pins or masking tape with 1/4" overhang for easy removal... have them sign and date the one you hang.

Just specify it in your contract... K.I.S.S.

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


Half the time all I ever seem to do is powder rooms, three strips, is half way done,or three quarters done since there;s a special prime seal so you can remove it in case of error. That'd be a funny time to start signing , you'd need a flower in your hat and some white gloves an some really big shoes

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


Like Pete all I seemed to do was bathrooms and small areas, time I hung three strips the room was half done. Now I find myself installing more and more in getting into bigger projects. Time to think ahead and get a contract drafted.

I'm hanging paper way more than painting again. Trend picked up heavily last year.

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


wow you may be way over thinking this, but do what you feel to protect your company.
i have been hanging residential since I was 15, I am now 47, never had a contract other than verbal and have been paid every time except once, an apprentice dropped a mirror and it cost me a day... but commercial is cut throat and you want to be especially careful because if a GC can find a reason to hold your retainer he will!

Re: Wallpaper Hanging Contract


So, this thread was started by trying to find a Wallpaper Installation Contract but, it seems everyone in here has gone off topic. Can someone please post a link of a Wallpaper Installation Contract?

Have you found a contract for wallpaper installation? Are you still in business?
