Adhering Loose Wallpaper Seams
LESLIE: Now we’re going to head over to California to chat with Michael about a wallpaper problem. What’s going on?MICHAEL: Oh, not much. What I got is a vaulted wall. It’s 14 feet high, 24 feet wide and it’s completely covered with wallpaper. Now, here and there, different spots, the vertical seams of the wallpaper are peeling away from each other and I am at a complete loss as to how it is I can get those seams to lay down and make it look like it belongs.TOM: Michael, there’s a product that will fix that. It’s called SureGrip. It’s made by the Zinsser Company. They’re a pretty big manufacturer of different types of home improvement products, so this is something that should be widely available. It’s called SureGrip Seam and Repair Adhesive. It’s about five bucks a tube and what I like about it is that it actually adheres those loose seams in ten seconds, so you don’t have to sit there and hold it down forever.LESLIE: (overlapping voices) And hold anything.TOM: You put it on, it’s like a non-drip formula and it works really, really well.
