The wallpaper border would take too long to paint around - The insurer should pay to replace it!
The insurance carrier only owes to paint the wall. It is not their fault that there is a wallpaper border in the way
The insurer should pay as much as it costs to paint around the wallpaper border - the insured should not have to destroy their undamaged border to save the insurance carrier money!
