Best method for Wallpaper Removal and Re Finishing


I am removing wallpaper this weekend and the my plan is to use wallpaper primer over adhesive. Then skim coat and prime the spackel with drywall primer then paint. Is this correct? Will this work or could I spackle directly onto the adhesive residue? Then use wallpaper primer?

I don't understand. You are removing wallpaper? Why are you using primer over adhesive to remove paper? When I removed my wallpaper, I used wallpaper remover that I got from a Big Box store, mixes in water, spread it on, removes the wallpaper and most of the adhesive came off with the paper. Then I can prep the wallboard normally.

You take off the paper and clean the walls. The adhesive is water soluble. There's no reason to let it stay on the walls.
I do not know what a, "wallpaper primer" is? They sell a primer with a sizing agent in it if you're applying wallpaper on the wall again, but you don't use it for a painted wall.
