tape & texture on vinyl wrapped drywall
I’m a Handyman doing some remodel work in a manufactured home. The client would like to put texture or wallpaper over the vinyl wrapped wallboard. I’m thinking the only thing to do with this stuff is tear it out.
Does anyone have experience with trying to get a textured finish or wallpaper to stick on top of the vinyl covering? Is there anything that can be put on the vinyl first that would allow mud to stick? They have put KILZ primer over the stuff in one of the bathrooms in preparation for experimenting with wall paper or drywall texture. They’ve also removed all the matching trim pieces exposing the gaps. Looks to me like it’s not a smooth enough surface for wallpaper to look good.
By the way, I’ve lurked around here at breaktime a lot but haven’t posted before. Picked up a lot of good tips, though. Thanks to everyone!
