I have a skylight in our master bathroom and the paint on the drywall is flaking. It appears that when I scrape the parts that are flaking that I am getting down to the cardboard face of the drywall. Apparently this is not green board so anything special.
What would be your recommendation to repair this? I am concerned that if I just scrape what is peeling now and then paint, there will be other sections that begin to peel later. Should I consider the dirty and consuming job of ripping out all of this sheetrock and replacing it altogether? I hope not but I want it done right.
I also have similar alligator or flaking paint in our other hall bathroom. Any recommendations for this?
Attached are pictures of the skylight problem as well as the other bathroom.
