    I purchased an 80’s ticky tacky house where half of the walls are
    ‘textured’ with painted vinyl that is slowly curling off the walls. I have
    pulled off a small portion and have discovered that the paper not only has
    fabric backing but was applied directly to the drywall without any sign of
    any wall prep. Is there any way to remove this stuff? Or, will I have to
    torch the place an move to another home?

    Hi Nina- Thanks for your question! Yes, it is wise to prime the wall before
    painting again, after taking down the wallpaper. This seals in any left
    over glue that still exists on the wall and will cause bubbling problems
    with the water based top coat. Russ

    is it wise to prime the wall before painting. even if the wall was painted
    before the wall paper was put on


    yeah this time I did as you said and managed to get the wallpaper off as
    one piece! 🙂 last time i tried myself and the wallpaper broke into pieces
    and end up with a lot of work. this time it’s much easier! Thanks Russ!
    Thanks for sharing the great tips 🙂 And Happy New Year 🙂 Greetings from

    will this metho work for wallpaper that is glued very tight? i was looking
    into using a steamer what are your thoughts on that? iv used the tiger
    thing many times but needed to pretty much skimcoat the entire surface
    afterward. i watched all 5 of the vids they are great thanks. p.s. is a
    regular stain blocking sealer/primer good enough i would prefer using
    something that is white and not clear. thanks so much

    Hello Michael- The plaster walls will have damage, but not like the torn
    drywall damage. I would prime walls first to seal in left over glue, and
    then mud the areas and then re-prime. This will seal in glue and ensure the
    mud will stick to wall.
