Measuring and Wall Assessment Service

If you are having issues measuring your wall or unsure if your wall surface needs further preparation, we offer a Measuring and Wall Assessment Service. This service is provided by our installation team for a fee of AED100. 

You can purchase this service here.

This fee includes:

  • A full wall measurement. Our team will measure the widest and highest points (in cm) of any walls or surfaces that you intend to cover with a Stories For Walls wallpaper product.

  • An obstruction assessment. Our team will note down any major obstructions such as recesses, lowered ceilings, bulk heads, windows or door positions (and their dimensions), which may affect the aesthetics of a mural. Some features we may advise you to remove, (i.e. light fixtures, shelving etc), whilst other elements like windows or doors obviously cannot be removed. By noting their positions in the wall, we may be able to move some elements around in the mural design to avoid them being cut out, due to the permanent position of these obstructions.

  • A wall condition assessment. Our team will throughly check your wall for holes, bumps, grit, rough patches, loose paint, cracks, indents or dust across the wall which may show through our wallpaper products and/or affect their ability to adhere to your wall. They will advise if your wall needs further preparation regarding these issues.

  • A wall colour assessment. Our team will check for any patchiness, dark and light areas and colour inconsistencies across your wall, and assess whether the existing colour on your wall is too dark and may show through some of our wallpaper products.

  • A wall material assessment. If your intended surface for your wallpaper is not drywall/gypsum, our team will make note of the surface. Please note some materials like MDF, tiles or glossy surfaces may not work for our wallpaper adhesives. Please advise the team and email us if you intend the wallpaper to be stuck onto any surfaces other than drywall/gypsum.

Our assessment team will take a photo of your wall to share with Stories For Walls to ensure all features of the wall are taken into consideration before artwork is sent to print. 

This fee does not include:

  • any wall preparation, treatment, sanding or painting etc.
  • any removal of old wallpapers or stickers
  • assessing whether your wall has been painted with paints that have stain resistant ingredients like teflon or latex which may affect our self adhesive products
  • determining exactly what type of paint is currently on your wall
Once the assessment team have reported back to Stories For Walls with their comments regarding your wall's measurements and condition, Stories For Walls will send an email and advise if any further wall preparation needs to be completed before installation. 

Knowledge of the types of paints currently on your wall/s and your wall/s preparation before installation, is the full responsibility of the customer.
