Wallpaper Seam Repair?


Does anybody know the trick to fixing wallpaper seams? I've tried a few different brands of wallpaper seam repair adhesive. I push the paper down, but it always curls back up before the glue dries enough to have any strength.

Try a hair dryer. If it's vinyl, sometimes nothing will work. Please do not use super glue, or any glue for that matter.

So there is no solution sometimes, other than what?

They sell wallpaper seam adhesive at Lowe's.

I'd dampen a sponge or wash cloth and dab the seam, and then apply the adhesive, and then use a roller to spread out the glue, but don't press really hard or you'll take out too much adhesive.

If it's curling no matter that's a tough one. May try a blow dryer like suggested above. Dampening it should soften it up a bit though.
