how to disguise woodchip

We had to strip wall woodchip from our old house and as long as you got the paper really wet, it wasn’t too bad, just not as easy as ordinary wallpaper. Conclusion seems to be for stripping it. I could imagine the woodchip be stuck to the wall well enough to hold a skim but it is not something I would ever recommend or ever try. Are they in hair thin or finger wide or somewhere in-between? On the wall it looks like an artex surface which I don’t mind on the ceiling but my entire house looks like that.

You’ll find it comes off in bigger pieces then! I cannot face stripping the walls of 6 rooms plus hall and stairs etc.

Connect with like-minded professionals and have your say on the issues that matter to you. Defining a rough wall or ceiling for that disgulse could take a long time. You need to hire a steamer from somewhere like HSS. I have wall paper that is anagypta based and has an indented pattern, the paper is very well stuck and does not lift at the corners, so I was thinking of putting a liner over and then papering over that, would this be ok? It is tiny, tiny chips of wood encased in the paper.


Obviously artex is an Hod thing too!

MarkybobOct 24, Thanks all, interesting reading. Is this the anti-condesnation paint or anti-damp one? I have an old wooden beam that was plastered! Exchange knowledge about wallcoverings.

Woodchip wall paper! Strip or just plaster over it? | TES Community

Then they say “another option, often overlooked, is to cover the woodchip with a plater skim or render” and “a professional decorator will probably use 2 layers of gypsum plater to achive a woodcyip finish” and “the work involves roughing up the papers surface using heavy grade sandpaper and slashing a diamond pattern hpw a stanley knife” Is it just me, or is this madness?

I think it could work though. Thanks for your help. Could i have some free samples please and also when i stripped the warmaline off some of the emulsion has peeled off with it leaving areas of bare plaster.

It is very well put on and actually looks quite nice but it is so out of date and I long for plain untextured walls. I refurbed a flat covered in the stuff, did each room in turn, got two very large pans filled with water, boiled them up on a camping cooker. So Mary maybe you could give that a go. Depending on the area to cover and the texture of the woodchip there are 4 grades available you could consider Wallrock Thermal Liner as well, but this may not be the most cost effective way of dealing with woodchip.

If you want smooth perfect walls then a plasterer is the person for the job.

When I started talking about serious 4 figure sums for the whole house the chaps face just fell! Woodchip wallpaper was really popular in the s and it’s basically a cheap paper with small chips of wood within it. I also looked at this forum for advice on removing painted over woodchip wallpaper. Use a Smartphone as GPS. Hi, I have woodchip on all living room walls and cannot remove it as plaster is blown underneath. Not so sure what I’m going to do about the ceiling as most of the woodchip’s come off but I can’t paper ceilings and think the edges are a bit too dodgy for painting.


This meant he effectively chopped the paper into lots of tiny bits, each one needing scrapping off separately whilst mine was coming off in larger sheets! I think this is where the problem is.
