Wallpaper Patched by the Manufacturer

Digital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageThis metallic silver cork wallcovering had a cut in the surface, about 7.5 feet down the roll. If you look closely, you can see it parallel to my red straight edge.

The manufacturer took a piece of white paper tape and put it on the back of the wallpaper, to keep the cut from separating and showing. Sounds good, right?

The thing is, the tape itself has a thickness to it, and could well show under the paper. In this case, since the paper is a thicker textured pattern, the bump from the tape might be less noticeable than if it were on a thinner regular wallpaper. But why chance it?

Considering what the homeowners paid for this wallpaper, I think the manufacturer should have discarded the damaged paper and given us a perfect roll.

I was able to measure out enough paper for the three strips I needed. I took the first strip from the top of the roll, then rolled it backwards and took the other two strips from the bottom end. Of course, I measured and marked first, to be sure there was enough paper, before cutting anything.

This is Thibaut #839-T-7047
