Efficient decorating – quad rolls MAV lining

Listed under Blog, preparation Posted Feb 13 2011

Efficient decorating pays. Which would you say is the most economical in terms of upfront cost, wastage and labour?

Answer. It isn’t the little one!

The 40m (quad) length of MAV lining is cheaper to buy pro rata than a single standard (UK) 10 m roll

The 40m length of MAV lining paper is less wasteful. There would be one odd length at the end of the roll versus 4 odd lengths from 4 single rolls, or 2 odd lengths from 2 doubles.

The 40m length saves on labour. It isn’t just the niggle time saved – open a quad roll once v handling and opening 4 singles. Time-saving definitely accumulates when you are measuring and cutting repeat lengths from a quad v 4 singles. And if you use a pasting machine, a quad is super efficient in comparison to loading and reloading 4 singles.

The individual savings aren’t huge, but added together, with a quad roll of lining paper, you work faster, better and spend out less versus 4 single rolls.

Cover Your Wall

I source my MAV lining paper from a brilliant specialist company called Cover Your Wall. They do all the lining paper from the MAV Erfurt company, the brand leader.

As well as all grades of what we consider “normal” lining, from 800 to 2000 weight, they carry products that I am sure most of us normal humans have never heard of. For instance, if your walls are covered in woodchip and you want a smooth wall finish solution that doesn’t involve stripping back to bare plaster, ask about the R300! They also have non-tear lining paper in widths up to 1 meter. Really efficient and smart ideas.

And the Cover Your Wall service, product info, delivery times and pricing are spot on.

High quality, quad rolls delivered to your door for an excellent price, what’s not to like, painter!
