Drywall over plaster?

Posted by gris on October 23rd, 2001 09:23 PM

We have a 100 year old house that has plaster walls which have been papered then painted over throughout the years. What I would like to do is put drywall over the plaster walls but am unsure if this is a good way of handling this situation. I really want to avoid tearing down the plaster and reinstalling the drywall given the additional work involved. Would there be any problems with laying drywall over the plaster?
