Hello to all - I'm new here and I wondered if someone could pass on some advice. I've started the dreaded job of removing painted over woodchip paper (everywhere, walls & ceiling) and I'm finding that the plaster skim on the walls underneath is bubbled or very thin and is coming off in patches. The paper itself is pretty firmly bonded. It's highly likely that when I've removed the paper, however carefully, large areas are going to need to be skimmed again. Given the messiness of the underlying wall with different ages of plastering and different quality of plastering, am I proposing too drastic a solution if I just get someone in to pull off the paper and skim in one go and have it all replastered ?
Cheers for any comments you can add.
