Hello everyone. I'll try to keep it brief. I just purchased a 2 family home built in 1927 in Buffalo, NY. I don't know how to do anything but am willing to try. House in in good condition except for all the wallpaper....will need to know how to get it down. And there is a shared furnace that I would like to get rid of....Buffalo is too cold to be paying for someone else's heat. Are these things hard and by hard I mean on the pockets to correct? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!
Wallpaper- dawn dish washing soap diluted in water, use an old windex bottle, and a putty knife is all that is needed for the wallpaper IF it was put up within the last say 15 maybe 20 years. I have run into some of the older stuff that was more difficult, but try this first. Wet the paper down with the soap solution, wait a few minutes, then peel off the first layer. Keep applying the soap and water and keep peeling. I use a 6" drywall tape knife to scrape ( carefully) to the wall. You will have to do this several times because after the last layer you will be removing the glue too. Hope this helps.
Sorry I can't help with the HVAC, I don't know much about that one.
