Default Plasterboard paper surface peeling

Hi all,

I have some internal stud/plasterboard walls, the paper is peeling away
from the plasterboard at the joins in some areas. It's quite thick due to
the number of coats of paint, so I can't just glue it down, it will
quickly peel away again.

What to do?

Don't recognise this problem. Do you mean wallpaper or lining paper, or
the outer layer of "card" in the plasterboard sandwich?

Don't think the plasterboard is papered over, it's the layer of paper on
the plasterboard that is peeling.

The only options really are
1. glue it back, maybe while leaning something against it. Wallpaper paste softens paper well.
2. Rip it off
3. Skim plaster over it all.
4. Fit lining paper.

Sounds like you have some sort of damp problem.
Condensation maybe.
Interstitial condensation?

it should have been reinforced with glass tappe.

All you cam do is remove the skim and tape the joint and re skim it

I'd go for ripping off the loose flap, sandpaper to give a smooth
feathered hole, fill with lightweight filler, then maybe lining paper
(again ripped to feather it) prior to light sand and repaint.


If its stable underneath, yes.

I assumed it wasnt

Agreed. I'd assumed they could get back to something "solid". As I said
in my original response I found it hard to understand how this condition
had arisen (damp and movement being obvious possible causes).
