Wallpaper pulling paint off the walls following application
We have recently had a decorator in to paper over a 12month wall. The house was a new build 12 months ago and the wall was painted with white emulsion. The decorator has primed the walls in prep for the wallpaper, left it to dry for 24hours and following the application of the paper it has fell off the wall and completely removed the paint leaving the bare plaster on show. Could this be an issue with the adhesive or would it be a case that the paint was not correctly applied in the first place ie Mist coat, dry time and emulsion over it?
The walls were probably not primed before painting. Builders often do not flood the walls, as well as do not dilute the paint with water for the first painting. This resulted in poor adhesion of the paint, necessity of priming 2 or 3 times before putting the wallpaper.
Paint not applied correctly in first place. To cut cost or short cut!
