I hired a paint contractor to remove wallpaper and paint. He primed over the backing of the wallpaper. He's not painting the room yet. I can see the texture different in the wall. bumpy, because of the glue underneath and also the backing paper. My texture is tiny. His mistake made the wall look funny in several part of the room. how can I fix his mistakes I'll paint the room. he's not coming back. took 50% deposit money and run.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much.

So he just basicly ripped the face of the wallpaper off and then primed it? If he primed it with oil then you can just skim coat it with joint compond, sand, prime again and paint. If not then you really need to prime it with oil to block any moisture from joint compond and paint from reactivating the wallpaper glue and causing it to bubble.
