In reply to Wallpaper removal disaster by Mark Becky on July 30th, 2000 07:23 PM [Go to top of thread]

Are you sure it was the drywall paper and not the wallpaper backing? If it was a brown paper (like paper grocery bags) everything is OK. I doubt the Dif would have taken off the drywall paper because it's pretty thick. As long as you have a smooth surface, you're fine.

Now, supposing the drywall paper was damaged (because the wall was not prepared correctly) - it depends on how torn up the wall is - you could spackle the damaged areas - or you may need to spread a thin layer of plaster over the whole wall. Or you can buy really thick wall paper or textured finish, which will not 'telegraph' the imperfections in the wallboard.

..hard to say without seeing it. try to describe it in more detail....
