Do You have a Historic home in Elgin that needs wallpaper?
Having a home that is older can be fun! But as a paint and wallpaper contractor we know as well as you that it can be challenging to find a contractor to work in these homes. Installing wallpaper in older homes gets tricky to not only find wallpaper that fits the home but can be installed over plaster, on walls, and around crooked corners.
Where to find wallpaper to fit your home?
If you are like Bill and Ruth in Elgin, their home is a work of art. They have spent years restoring woodwork, keeping the home not just looking as it did 100 years ago but feeling the same as much as possible. Bill and Ruth discussed the efforts to find plumbing fixtures to match the homes age. The also have had their share of issues finding contractors that either can or would work in an oder home.
“it gets Tricky working on a room or wall where it is not square, flat, or smooth”!
When Bill and Ruth needed to replace their wallpaper, they turned to the folks at JC Licht in South Elgin. Renee’ has been there for a few years and is great at helping folks out in wallpaper selections. After a few books and nights going through wallpaper books, the selction was found!!

- Do they have a website?
- Do they have any reviews on line -Google reviews?
- Does the local paint store know them?
- Are they an actual business or a man out of a van?
- Do they have insurance?

- Have they been trained at all or have they learned on the go?
