I have the same question that Mark had on August 23, 1999 at 10:27 am. I have an older home with plaster walls. The plaster in two bdrooms is loose on the walls and appears to be flaking off on a couple of the walls. Can I repair area with drywall and feather the joint compound into the original plaster or remove all of it? What is the fastest way to get all the plaster off the walls where over 1/2 of the wall has now flaked off?
