How to repair Wallrock Fibreliner
Can you fix Wallrock Fibreliner…
…or any other liner from the Wallrock range of products if it’s been damaged on the wall? Fortunately, the answer is yes. This is mainly due to the fact that Wallrock wallcoverings are dry stripable, which makes the whole job much easier. We have written a detailed, step-by-step article demonstrating how to go about fixing Wallrock types of wallcoverings on CoverYourWall website, but here we are just going to look at some of the key aspects of the process. In this example you are looking at one of the Wallrock Trend textured wallpapers so that you can see the difference in textures easily.
Why dry stripable matters?
Simply, it matters because it will allow you to make a very neat cut around the damaged area and pull it off leaving you with relatively clean surface underneath. Having said that the result might vary depending on the wallcovering you have on the wall and the state of the surface under the wallcovering. A good example here would be Wallrock Thermal Liner, which has mesh-like backing.
Why does ‘dimensionally stable’ matters?
We use the term ‘dimensionally stable’ quite often when describing one of the benefits of using Wallrock range of products; however, I don’t think everyone appreciates it until they realise their lining paper is getting wider when the adhesive is applied. If the Wallrock wallcovering wasn’t dimensionally stable you’d not be able to repair the damaged area because you wouldn’t be able to get the right size of the ‘patch’ for it.
