skimming over woodchip

Ive got a house full of it and it is really well stuck on the walls and ceilings. Why go digging at it. I guess the plasterer would prefer a virgin wall but would it take him alot longer to go over the woodchip, if he can!? Do you already have an account? Use a steamer and you will complete the job in no time. G-Dec , Nov 10,

Ours is a Twenties house with original features – heavy panelled doors, solid brass door furniture and skirting board radiators, so woodchip and the artex covering dodgy plaster in other places just ain’t an option. We had to strip wall woodchip from our old house wokdchip as long as you got the paper really wet, it wasn’t too bad, just not as easy as ordinary wallpaper.
