Commercial Vinyl Wall Paper

Wall paper out of style and no longer used in construction? Not at all, today’s high end commercial buildings still use many types of wall coverings, typically referred to as “wall paper”. Now, when I picture wall paper, I imagine a very gaudy, thin, narrow, paper like material, with ugly split seams, installed in most kitchens and bathrooms in the 1980’s… And as a child I spent many an hour painstakingly scraping the gooey mess from the walls of our home. That is certainly not the wallcovering I’m speaking of here, most of the wall covering used in high end commercial buildings today is type 2 vinyl wallcovering, typically 54″ wide, and comes on large rolls, or bolts, 30 – 50 yards long. This wallcovering requires a machine to apply the paste. wallpaper paste machine

We do a lot of new construction installs, typically bathrooms and meeting rooms in Hotels and office buildings, however the majority of the wallcovering we install today is in older buildings where the original vinyl wall paper has gotten an out of date look. We complete many projects each year where we remove the existing wall vinyl, prep the wall board, and install new 54″ commercial vinyl wallcovering. We typically do this in office buildings and hotels where business as usual takes place while the project is quickly completed.

It can be a bit tricky where mold and mildew has become a problem behind the wall covering. Below is a picture of a wall at a high end hotel in the Raleigh area, and this is typical of most hotels with a little age on them


Ever enter a hotel room and catch a faint tent like odor? That odor is rancid microbial growth spreading on the gypsum wall board behind the wall paper!

This is one of our specialties, we are experts at removing existing vinyl wall coverings and treating the walls beneath. We have expert crews experienced with treating existing wall board, or in extreme cases, removing the wall board altogether and installing new “mold tough” wall board and then installing new vinyl wall covering.

We are experienced in the hospitality industry and we understand the need for discretion when doing this type of repair. We recently did a 50 room mold remediation at a high end name brand hotel in Raleigh, being a large hotel and the mold problem sporadic  throughout the hotel, discretion was a huge concern. To tackle this project without hotel guests becoming aware, we removed all the damaged wall board and sealed it in thick black bags and removed them from hotel in a quiet, clean, professional way. None of the guests at the hotel became wise to the mold issue…

Whether you’re in need of just an updated look or have a serious problem with mildew and mold, we can assist you in the best solution for a brand new look. We also do any type of alteration, from a complete demolition of an office to a simple repair.

The Tumble Gym

The Tumble Gym


This is a recent interior completion Anthony & Company was awarded by The Tumble Gym at their new Raleigh location at 4035-112 Lake Boone Trail in the Market Place at Lake Boone shopping center.


The building was an empty shell when the project began, the pictures below show how the interior looked the first day of framing the interior walls.

Ever wonder where all those water lines are hidden? Here’s a peak under the slab at the under ground sewer lines.

As the fit-up continued to progress, all trade rough-ins completed, the insulation was installed. The pictures below show the interior walls as they were insulted and ready for the drywall installation.

After all the rough-in and insulation inspections passed we began to install gypsum panels. The pictures below show the installers installing the first few sheets of 5/8” drywall and the project as we began to finish the walls and prepare to paint

This building has all the HVAC units on the roof top, the pictures below show the crews puncturing the roof to set the curb and then setting the unit in place.

This is a picture of “Spooky”, from Carolina Commercial Systems, doing the final connections to the roof top unit. He said he couldn’t be found on the internet so we thought we’d highlight him (don’t tell him).


To save some cash The Tumble Gym did their own painting, what we call sweat equity… Here are a few pictures as the painting progressed.
