Johnstone’s Paste the Wall Survey
More than 80% of professional decorators questioned during a recent survey carried out by PPG Architectural Coatings believe Paste the Wall products are significantly easier and quicker to apply than traditional wallpaper.
Johnstone’s Paste the Wall Survey, which saw a panel of experienced decorators try out ‘Paste the Wall’ wallcoverings, discovered that 85% said they had found it more efficient than the traditional method, would happily use the product again and would recommend it to fellow decorators.
It was the ease of use which most impressed the panel, with 100% saying the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Virtually all also reported that the wallpaper peeled off easily in single sheets without the need for scrapers and steamers, delivering a considerable time saving for decorators.
Removing the need to use a paste table, reducing the amount of mess and the fact that the process is much faster without the need to soak the paper, were among the reasons the panel gave it the thumbs up. In fact, 70% of those surveyed felt that these benefits would outweigh any additional cost on future projects.
