    Default Woodchip Wallpaper

    drywallschool.com

    Other than the polycell "Smooth it", is there anything else to cover woodchip up with.
    Joint Cement, Easi Fill?? any other alteratives
    Stripping it would be a very distant last resort

    There is this marvelous product that has paper on both sides, and gypsum in the middle. It's called something like paperboard..... plasterwall.....
    no, it's called plasterboard.

    To be honest only real way of doing it is stripping it i know it can be a pain but thats the job unforunately putting filler on means wet going through and activating old paste and possibly weight of filler pulling paper off or bubbling through your filler.

    Best to bite the bullet and strip it, it will be a pain but its worth it.

    strip the paper brian...... if you dont you could end up with massive problems...... like if you were to skim over the woodchip the chances of the wet material you apply onto the paper will soak through the paper and end up with the paste wet again and the paper peeling/falling off =]

    hot water & washingup liquid and some paste mix the lot and roller it over the paper...... i add paste as it stops all the water running straight of the paper especially on ceilings =]

    usually works fine have done jobs where people used steam strippers and ended up butchering the plasterboard and tapes the lot

    I'd forgotten about this thread

    Right I used that Simplystrip system, very good.
    The scorer they supply is easy to use, the sheets to put on the wall, useful, but ordinary bed sheets cut up and soaked in warm water would stick to the wall, and the sprayer, a garden rose sprayer would do the trick.

    Now they have "the special liquid" I still can't put my finger on it, the smell reminds me of something but can't remember what.
    This I think is completely unnecessary, just some hype, and personally don't think it does anything.

    I stripped 2 12 x12 rooms in 2 afternoons
    The key is scoreing the paper well, and then putting the sheets (wet) on the wall and keep wetting it, trial and rror will tell you how long to leave it before trying to "peel" the paper off, which a majority of it did.

    Then reskim and paint

    The kit itself was "possibly" about right price wise, knowing what I know now, the only thing I needed to buy was their Scorer, (see last post)

    No it wasn't frustrating in the least, infact in a perverse way it was "sort of enjoyable"
    and a lot quicker than I was anticipating, about 10hrs total for the 2 rooms

    The kit which comprises of a bottle of "Special Liquid" a Scorer, a Spray bottle, a Wide Scraper, and 6 sheets of what looks like tissue paper. 29.99

    Yep it lasted for the 2 rooms, and the sheets are still good to go for, a whole house and more maybe.
    The "Special Liquid" is blue in colour, and has no effect on bare skin, there's no warnining on it, (so it's not harmful) and no ingredients list, to say what it's made of.

    To be quite honest warm water does the same job, I tryed it, no difference

    well tommy next time i get a whole house paperd with woodchip. il shout you and you can strip it for me. i like your "wet up wallpaper" dosnt happen especially to woodchip thats had many coats of paint. youl find if you use a stripper it makes the paint peel of and thats with alot of heat and moisture. hot water wouldnt soak through the paint that fast. perferator

    I've used the scorer Tommy pictured there, and tbh its best used sideways if you get my drift, so you are tearing into the paper rather than making daft little pin holes.
    Good ta see ye back Scottishlad, you been on extended holiday? Was beginning to think you were that wee guy with loads o computers in his room that got carted away for hacking into CIA files!

    extended holiday? the last time i had a holiday was xmas - 2010... and that was 3 days. could do with a holiday nevermind an extended one lol. yeah i agree with the tearing the paper with it i got a perferator like tommy`s cost me just under 20 ripoff....... ended up buying the scorer instead its far better .
