Houston Wallpaper

I recently went to St. Louis for the annual Painters and Decorators Of America (PDCA) convention. Local paperhanger and friend, Chris Johnson, travelled with me to represent the National Guild Of Professional Paperhangers (ngpp.org). A wonderful, informative gathering of professional tradesmen and women, we were able to learn about an opportunity to travel to California for a training in acoustical walls. I will post on that trip in a few weeks.
 
The wallpaper business is still going strong in Houston.

How Much Do You Charge To Hang Wallpaper?

It depends,of course. Most professional paperhangers will charge between $250-$350 per day. I don't know of anyone locally who charges by the roll as in the old days. I am somewhere in the middle of that price range for most jobs-but not all. Sometmes, actually alot of times, I get a call to hang an accent wall or small bath etc. and when I tell them my price, they say " I'll get back with you". Yeah, right. Most of my clientel doesn't have a problem paying my price because they have done this before and knows what it costs to get a pro to do their job.

Hope this finds all doing fine and getting in the holiday season. That may be a little difficult for many because of the unusually warm weather.
 
After a small lull around Thanksgiving things have ramped up again and will be busy until Christmas. I somehow find ways to squeeze jobs in. As usual, I find myself hanging all types of wallpaper and have to be prepared for whatever comes along. I'm doing more commercial and business jobs than usual. I will be hanging at A'Gaci in The Galleria next week.

Welcome Autumn

After a busy summer, I've just returned from my wonderful vacation to Maine to what looks to be a- just as busy fall. I was reading a local magazine today while having my truck serviced, and an article authored by an interior designer explained just how much she and other designers are using wallpaper as opposed to faux painting. Styles and compositions are available now that just don't even resemble your mom's old wallpaper. I'm gearing up for a busy rush to Christmas. Please call or e-mail me for a quote on new wallpaper installation!
