I have some Sanderson wallpaper to hang, the wall was skimmed about a month ago and has a mist coat.
I am assuming I can hang it straight on with Solvite, but any advice is welcome as want to make a good job of it...

And sometimes if the vynl is particularly heavy I will add in some ready mixed paste to my basin of polycell mix..

Pretty sure Sanderson papers are ready mix adhesive ?
Also would line before hand as well , but that's my preference.
Agagin look at instructions first , agree with K Decor that's my preferred joice of pastes :thumbleft:

ye your right Richardson, Would assume the paper intrustions say use Sandersons ready mix paste only.

If for any reason their was a fault found on the paper or it reacted differently in anyway, Sanderson may not compensate if the person hanging the paper he/she did not follow their guidlines...ie use sandersons own paste.

Its normally just a rouse to get you to but their own product...but your right and you could leave yourself open if there is any gried with hanging it (sandersons paper can be a right pig to hang too)

I would advise the customers to line as well..over the top of mist coated plaster...risky...you could have absorption, shrinkage or other problems..

Lining paper is the ideal surface to paper over..and gain..you might not have a come back if there are problems

Ive bene in that situation before..but at the end of the day..If they can afford that paper they can surely afford the lining?

If they do go for it make sure you use the same paste for bot as there can sometimes be complications..If they wont have the lining just make sure you cover yourself by telling them you cant guarantee the success if you dont use it.

These sort of jobs have an habit of coming back and biting you in the bum..

Hanging Sanderson without a lining paper AND something like Halls Beeline is NOT a good idea. A decorator I know did not follow these tips and ended up having to buy the client 10 rolls of replacement paper as the edges all opened up on him. As a decorator myself, I would not even entertain a client not prepared to line under a £40-£50 wallpaper. That's just asking for problems.

Beeline works? That is widely available locally whereas Sandersons paste has to be ordered with a delivery charge. Cross lining is the way to go..

Youl probably find Sandersons paste is made by Beeline anyway..they are probably one of the biggest independent companies in the UK.

In the end I sized the wall after really careful prep, and used their adhesive. All worked fine and the client was thrilled.
