They only had one type when I got mine and it didn't state whether it was heavy duty or light... it was realatively thick though and meant to cover rough/uneven walls.

I stumbled upon the site below, since I cant find it at Home Depot, so I was not sure of the one to get.

Mine was around $8 a roll if that helps...

Thanks for the great idea and detailed steps WB, I just finished paint my wall after applying the liner paper and it made a world of difference.

Re: Working with Rough Walls... a Screen from Nothing

KISS was our motto in the military and sometimes the simplest method truly is the best way to handle things. My experience in life (and with screens) has taught me that most of the time when something is complex, it isn't always better, it's just harder to do!

To quote a line from Soldier-
"My daddy told me when you have to pound a nail in you don't do anything fancy... you just pick up a hammer and pound it in!"

Looks like this might be the best method to use on my basement concrete walls. How much of a gap do you leave between the two strips of the linen paper?

Thanks

No gap, place them as close to each other as possible. Also, the mud and paint cover up the break in wall paper and you wont even see it from about 2 feet away if done correctly.

Re: Working with Rough Walls... a Screen from Nothing

oooooooooo, sooooo tempting. I have a 100 inch screen made with do-able board and want to upgrade to a 120 inch screen. only problem I noticed was you said you liner paper came in 26 inch wide strips... can you get it wider??? I'd need about 59 inches total on the width and 2 pieces would only make about a 100 inch screen
