I just bought a house that has fiberglass wallpaper in a couple of rooms.

In one of the rooms the wallpaper was not properly applied and it's full of little holes. From what I read it means not enough glue was applied when putting the wallpaper up.



Does anyone know if there is a way to fix or minimize the problem without having to redo the work?

Is it possible that the wallpaper has been painted and those are areas where the paint did not adhere or flaked away? – bib Mar 4 '14 at 13:30
Hi. It's fiberglass wallpaper, it's not a normal wallpaper. It's supposed to be painted. It's not about paint not adhering, it's really holes due to not enough glue being added while putting the fiberglass. I can paint it again and the holes will still be there because the paint will go behind the fiberglass. – Dante Mar 4 '14 at 13:44

I managed to get it looking good by filling the holes with paint and passing the brush over it a couple of times after it was painted, while drying. The fiberglass glued to the wall.

Hope it helps someone!
