Maybe it is a regional thing, I worked many years doing restoration work in homes that dates back to the very early 1800's in West Tennessee and I never saw canvas used in any of the homes either. I can see where it would be a good idea to use canvas on the walls and ceilings to stop air infiltration where there was little to no insulation especially up North. I can see where it would be a good idea to use to hold plaster in place also.

canvas walls

Just closing the chapter on this "never-ending" home repair. The vinyl canvas worked out "GREAT". Thanks for everyone's input. You all inspired a novice to "give it a shot" and attempt the repair myself. The final outcome looks good after the final coat of paint. I am going to use the "canvas" on some other wall repairs. I'm glad that I came to this Forum...hope all of you dads have a great Fathers Day!!
