Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of wallcovering can be reclaimed?
A: Any fabric backed (woven and non-woven) vinyl wallcovering. (We cannot take back Teflon® laminated wallcoverings .)

Q: Will KOROSEAL take back a competitor's wallcoverings?
A: Yes.

Q: Does a customer have to place an order with KOROSEAL in order to return wallcoverings?
A: Yes.

Q: Can KOROSEAL accept residual drywall and adhesive on the returned wallcovering?
A: Yes. KOROSEAL can accept residual drywall and adhesive on the back of the wallcovering. (Other contaminates such as nails, razor blades, wood, glass, and garbage must be removed.)

Q: Where do customers send the used wallcovering?
A: To KOROSEAL's plant. KOROSEAL Sales Representatives must complete a Wallcovering Reclamation Returned Goods Authorization form prior to material being shipped to our plant. Wallcoverings must be packaged properly to assure the materials remain dry and clean.

Q: Who is responsible for shipping the used wallcovering to the plant?
A: The customer is responsible for shipping the used wallcovering to the plant.

Q: Will KOROSEAL pay the freight to return used wallcovering?
A: Yes. If a customer purchases an equal amount of wallcovering that is returned to the plant (assume 1 pound of returned wallcovering = 1 yard of new wallcovering), the customer can ship the used wallcovering collect using an Koroseal Interior Products pre-approved carrier.

Q: Does participating in the Reclamation Program contribute to a building achieving LEED points?
A: Yes. The LEED Materials & Resources Credits 2.1 and 2.2, Construction Waste Management, require construction and demolition debris be diverted from disposal in landfills and incinerators. By returning used wallcovering to KOROSEAL, a building owner will divert construction debris from disposal or incineration.

Q: How do I get started?
A: Please contact your KOROSEAL Customer Service Sales Representative for additional details.
