Question

Painting walls after wallpaper removed


I have removed wall paper and plan to paint the walls. There is glue left on the walls. Should I remove the glue by sanding or can I just put a primer coat of paint over the glue? I am worried about how the glue will react with the paint.

yep the paint will reativate the paste and youl have a mess on your hands . i have seen it many times and it looks like . . . . . so what you can do is wash the paste off .bucket ,spray bottle ,hot warter ,paste remover like dif or another brand ,puddy knife ,6 ingh broad knife,sponge, and most important geen scrub pads . when paste is off prime with zinnzer cover stain oil base this will take care of residiaul paste, then 2 top coats quility latex paint

Painting walls after wallpaper removed


I'm going through a similar process of removing wallpaper, and I just want to make sure I have the process right:

1) Remove Wallpaper
2) Wash & scrub walls, try and get all that leftover glue and residue off
3) Apply a coat of Gardz
4) Patch, Sand, and Gardz any of the trouble spots
5) Paint!

Is that right or am missing something?

I would get everything of the surface before painting - sanding, scraping , whatever it takes. The more time and care you spend on prepping the nicer the finished result - I always say prepping is 90% and the painting is 10%

Painting walls after wallpaper removed


I have read the posts about removing wall paper, scrubing , etc. and using Gardz primer. My question has to do with a border (near ceiling). That's the only place where there is wall paper, paste, etc. Can I use the Gardz primer at the border area only? Will there be a noticeable line where it stops? What's the best way to achieve a good job?

In response to chrisn, yes. I will be painting the walls. I will assume from your response (when I get it) , that a chair rail wallpaper border would incur the same procedure. I have learned over time that spot repairs are not conducive to a finished look.

You got that right. After removal and cleaning, prime the whole surface with the Gardz and you are ready to paint.
