Class Code: 5491

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 5491 is applied to specialist contractors engaged in paperhanging. Lightweight or heavyweight, patterned or solid color wallpaper, some with adhesive backings, some with vinyl coatings, grass cloth, etc., are used to cover interior walls of rooms in both residential and commercial buildings. Walls are cleaned or scraped to ensure adequate adhesion. Adhesive is applied to a section of the wall or the paper strip or both. Patterns are matched and the strip is applied to the wall and brushed smooth to remove air pockets. These operations are repeated until the entire job is completed.

Plastic film, when applied as a separate tinting operation, not in conjunction with liquid tinting operations, is assigned to Code 5491. Firms engaged in auto window tinting are assigned to the appropriate garage classification. Code 5474 is assigned to “brush-on” or “spray-on” methods of applying liquid tint to building windows. The application of plastic film to building windows in conjunction with the above operations is also classified to Code 5474.

Please refer to Code 5403 for extra-territorial premium determination guidelines that may be applicable to insureds that have operations outside their headquarters’ state.
