Wallpaper installation is commonly priced by the roll - Spicer Walls prices are based on Square Footage of surface areas (Walls & Ceilings). We charge according to the room size and complexity because depending on your product selection, more wallpaper may be needed to accommodate for pattern matches or have a higher waste factor to suit your project. Our square foot labor costs accounts for windows, doors, vanities or any other obstacles, as they create greater challenges when installing.
Our Base line for installation per Square Foot is $2 for Residential & Small Commercial Projects.
MINIMUM INSTALL RATE - $350
MINIMUM REPAIR RATE - $150
You have a 30 day warranty with our installation services - Warranty work will not be honored until the final invoice is paid in full. We will return one time following the installation to address any issues pertaining to the installation such as popped corners / edges that may happen following the installation as the wallpaper dries out. Anything past this return trip will be subject to charges.
We are not responsible for manufactures defects such as seams shrinkage and expansion, or any other discrepancies that come from the manufacturers process. We follow the manufacturers suggestions to make sure any warranty claims are valid for their products.
3rd PARTY MANUFACTURER FAULTS
Some issues may arise that are not due to the installation, but rather the product itself. In this instances, we will work to resolve the issues professionally but there may be additional charges. We will asses each situation as they arise. The most common occurrences are:
1. Seam Separation
2. Bubbles after drying
3. Dye coming off the front
4. Inconsistent pattern match - typical in screened patterns
5. Wrong Installation Instructions
With over 35 years experience and countless rolls of installation, SPICER has mastered the fundamentals of installation. We always review product specifications installation instructions and use them combined with these mastered fundamentals to deliver consistent successful installations nearly every day. We are not incapable of mistakes and will always own mistakes made, but we will not be held responsible for manufacturing faults.
Many manufacturers price their papers by "single roll", but package and sell them by "double rolls". This causes much confusion that too often results in only half the paper being ordered that is needed. We acknowledge the issue by calling a packaged and sold wallpaper product a BOLT.
Q: What is a BOLT?
A: A BOLT by SPICER WALLS definition is the over all width and length of a wall covering / wallpaper as packaged and sold by the manufacturer.
When figuring for your wallpaper, we always read the product specifications to figure out how wide and how long the BOLT actually is packaged and sold.
SPICER WALLS has formulated the most efficient way to estimate quickly with confidence to order enough product to professionally install any project. When we recommend quantity - we do it in BOLTS.
Please be sure to address this with the selling party of your wall coverings before ordering.
We formulate a recommended quantity based off the dimensions of your room, product specifications provided, similar projects we have installed, knowledge of products, and our years of experience in this industry. It is a recommendation. If you choose to order less than the recommendation, it may create a quantity shortage.
Not ordering enough quantity may result in slight color variations due to not having the same lot number. If there is not enough wallpaper ordered to complete the job, there will be a return trip charge to complete the project.
RETURN TRIP CHARGES
Return trips generally result in quantity shortages and / or mis-management of the project. If for any reason outside of our commitment or responsibilities that we are not able to complete the project within a timely manner on the date(s) booked, a MINIMUM return trip charge of $200 will be charged. Full payment of agreed charges will also be due regardless of completion.
If you are looking for optimal results in your finish Wallcovering, you must assure that your walls are given the attention necessary to yield a top result prior to installation. A finish product such as Wallcovering is only as good as the surface it is applied too. Although we prime surfaces with industry recommended primers for wall coverings, we can not be liable for the state of the wall prior to installation. We will take great care in our installation proceedings to give the best installation possible on the conditions provided.
Common issues in surface areas:
Bows in the wall boards
Uneven surfaces both on the main surface areas
Uneven inside and outside corners
Particles in paint
No, Wrong or Poor application of paint / primer
Any discrepancies can result in a compromise of your finish product. We are not responsible for others “less than satisfactory” work that reflects on the finish product. We urge for grace to be given as there does not exist a perfect wall surface.
This is a practice of “Illusion of perfection”
The Wallcovering uses a 6 feet rule - if you can’t see it from 6’ away, then it is acceptable.
Surface areas need to be primed with appropriate wallpaper sizing prior to installation to prevent any common issues such as mold growth and seam separation. Sizing seals the drywall to prevent the glue from penetrating into the wall board and promote better bonding to the wall surface as well as to make removal much easier and minimize drywall damage in the future. Many manufacturers require wall sizing in order to accommodate warranties. Our estimates include materials.

We provide the proper wall sizing and application. If MOLD is present, we will not install wall covering. It will need to be remediated by a licensed specialist.
