Plastering over woodchip paper?

Postby Bluerich81 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:23 pm

Can you plaster over painted woodchip paper? Ive got a house full of it and it is really well stuck on the walls and ceilings. Can it be skimmed over if cleaned and PVA'd? I guess the plasterer would prefer a virgin wall but would it take him alot longer to go over the woodchip, if he can!?
Thanks, Richard.
