Wallpaper Removal Pricing
Determining the price of professional wallpaper removal is complex because national averages range from as little as $400 to over $1,000.
At Fresh Coat Painters of Ann Arbor, we provide tailored quotes for all our customers because we don’t believe you should pay a cent more than you have to.
If you’re looking into wallpaper removal services, the primary factors our team reviews during the consultation/inspection stage include the following:
- Size – The bigger the room, the longer the job will take.
- Age – Older wallpaper can be easier or more challenging to remove, depending on the type.
- Type – Newer wallpapers are as simple to remove as tugging on a corner, but older nonporous wallpaper is traditionally tricky to remove, requiring both steaming and scraping.
- Removal Method – Different removal methods will be required depending on the type of wallpaper. Stripping, soaking, scraping, and steaming will influence your quote.
- Wall Material – The material hiding behind the wallpaper can make removal jobs more challenging. Plaster and drywall have unique characteristics, requiring a tailored plan of action to protect the wall itself.
- Location – Tricky areas like vaulted ceilings, stairways, and tight closets may require more time and effort to remove wallpaper.
Additional costs can also influence the overall price of wallpaper removal services. The most common package enhancements include room prep, wall repair, and professional interior painting services.

Wallpaper Removal Services FAQs
Before searching for a “wallpaper removal company near me,” you may wonder how we remove wallpaper from your walls in the first place.
The process depends on the age and type of wallpaper, in addition to what your underlying walls are made of.
Newer wallpapers can be removed by stripping, whereas older wallpapers may require steaming and soaking the walls before scraping them off.
Knowing the intricacies of every job is crucial to avoid causing damage to your drywall or plaster. This is why we always recommend hiring a professional instead of trying to take down the wallpaper yourself. It’s a deceptively complex job.
Many of our customers want to remove wallpaper that has been up for decades. In many cases, wallpaper hides existing damage, such as crumbling plaster, mold, and cracks, which is especially prevalent in older homes.
We can repair any damage to the walls, including impact damage, water damage, and mold. Sometimes, repairing existing damage may be unavoidable, especially if the wallpaper begins lifting the topmost surface of your drywall.
If you need wallpaper removal and painting services, our team can prep your walls for a smooth, flawless finish.
With the proper preparation, there’s nothing to stop you from painting over practically any kind of wallpaper. Many people choose to do this because they don’t want to remove the existing wallpaper.
However, this isn’t the best option in some cases. If there are any chips, holes, or scratches in the wallpaper, it’s always better to strip the wall instead of painting over it. Another reason to remove the wallpaper is that painting over it and attempting to remove it later makes the job way more involved.
For a high-end finish, we always recommend removing the wallpaper first. Unfortunately, painting over poor-quality wallpaper will only work for so long.
If you only choose to invest in wallpaper removal services, it should take around a day to strip an average-sized room with no underlying problems. There are situations you may run into that will shift this timeline.
For example, older homes with wallpaper over a generation old often see chunks of plaster or drywall falling away when removing the paper.
If you’re also prepping and painting the underlying walls, the job can take anywhere from three to five days.
As a rule of thumb, professionals can typically complete this sort of work in half the time of an amateur.
During your consultation, we’ll provide you with the most realistic timeline we can. If we discover any unforeseen problems, such as hidden damage to the wall, we may need to revise our timeline.
