After hanging the first three
panels obtain approval of color uniformity and pattern match. Assure that:
covering is applied without horizontal joints; internal and external angles
are continuous withvertical joints occurring not less than 6 inches from the
internal or external corner; vertical joints are lapped and double cut or

applied base and trim; seams and corners are securely pasted, so that no
moisture or water vapor can get behind the wall covering; and wall covering
extends behind edges of switch and receptacle cover plates and other
surface-mounted equipment. Hang wall covering to assure that: colors are
uniform; patterns are matched at the seams; and finished surfaces are free of
air pockets, wrinkles, tears, and other defects.
