Re: Wallpaper Pricing

I price an estimate for the entire job. I have found that every wallpaper job I do requires primer / sizing walls, painting ceilings etc.

I thought pricing by the roll was the expected method of hanging paper but I have yet to take a job where I showed up and everything was ready to go.

Re: Wallpaper Pricing

I am looking at commercial job . This is 54 inch vinyl, 30 yards to the bolt. Have done lots of hanging and have the tools, my only issue is that most of my work has been hourly since they were insurance jobs where we were going in somewhat blind without much lead time

Re: Wallpaper Pricing

I'd give consideration to the kind of vinyl , the cost of it but mostly,,,,,,the stature of the final client. Unlike regular paper which isn.t too cheap as it is , vinyl even more, it's heavy work also
If paint covers all sins ,,,then I guess I should be covered
