In the process of removing (attempting to remove) vinyl wall paper. Walls will neeed to be textured after patch and removal of wall paper. However, the removal process is not going well. One dry wall finisher states that he can "skim coat" right over the wall paper being as how it is tight to the wall. My suggestion was to "overlay" new sheet rock over the wall paper and treat it as a new sheet rocked wall, tape, texture, ect. The latter being more expensive, time ($$$$) consuming, I am looking for an easier more efficient way out of this delema. Is "skim" coat going to "do it" over the wall paper. Will the skim coat and texture hold up over the long haul?Thanks in advance.
