Damaged edges

From the wallpaper problem solver - quick reference guide

Damaged edges are generally caused by improper handling either by the carrier from factory to supplier, or from supplier to installer.

Often the edges are only damaged within the first half metre or so. The installer should notice any damage during the hanging and determine whether or not to use the roll or have it replaced.

With most vinyl wallcoverings, the edge damage should in many cases straighten out with the correct soaking and installation. Vinyl coated products will damage more easily.

It is up to the installer whether to hang the affected wallcovering or have it replaced.

There is no way an installer could not see this defect during hanging.
