Question DetailsAsked on 4/26/2016

Approximately much would it cost to install a wall mural?

The mural is going to be installed in a large building, spanning an entire 40 foot by 9 foot wall. The vinyl mural is going to be a permanently installed fixture on a painted drywall surface.

For that size glued-on mural you need an expert - I would check with the company providing the mural for local installers, and also on whether it comes with or needs a sprayed-on protective clear coat to protect from people touching/rubbing against it. Probably going to be a commercial wallpaper installation company or more likely a commercial billboard company (not AL category) - they put up large vinyl ads on billboards and marquees commonly.

Have never been involved with one that big - but I would guess off the cuff that you are talking $100-2000 installation cost (not including the mural itself) because this is going to probably require staging for them to be able to work it effectively and avoid creases and such - going to need some serious support along the top edge holding it up while it is being mounted. And most likely - check with manufacturer - may need a separate wall mount adjustable stretcher frame, because I can't see this big a mural being glued to the wall or coming peel-and-stick unless it comes in many panels that are fitted together.

And don't forget to consider who is going to pick this up or receive and handle it - because you can't just sling it over your shoulder and carry it off. Is likely to come in a 9+ foot long wood packing crate that is going to have to be maneuvered into the building, rolled out in the entry area (hopefully there is room) and then rerolled to the wall in the 30 foot long dimension - that is a substantial part of the job, doing that without creaasing or tearing it (assuming of course this comes as one piece rather than as panels).

Youu definitely need an expert doing this - LOTS of opportunities for it to get creased, torn, bubbled,, out of alignment, etc if not done expertly.
