I've slowly been making progress in my kitchen and dining room removing the painted over wallpaper and prepping the walls for a fresh coat of paint.
Today I started working on a new area in the kitchen and ran into some trouble. I was checking to see if it was wallpaper and as I worked on the edge of the wall it started to peel away in big sheets. After a few minutes I realized what I was peeling wasn't wallpaper! It seems to be the paint and sheetrock paper coming off in together because what's underneath is a chalky wall.
What I want to know, is this a paint failure problem? Do I need to peel the rest of the unstable paint/paper off and start over or is it ok to stop and apply guardz to the damaged areas, patch and paint.
