Does painting old wallpaper make it much harder to remove later?
I have a house full of multiple layers of painted-over wallpaper. I'd love to prime and paint for a quick fix, but would these extra layers make it much harder to remove later?
It's actual wallpaper, not vinyl. Former owner was a smoker so the walls need some attention asap. I'd love to properly strip each room down to the original plaster, but the plaster will most likely need major repair a few years from now when I get the house brought to level and put in a new foundation. With so many layers of paper and paint already, how bad could a new primer/paint layer be?
