I have plaster walls, lath slots and then with no insulation behind them. The walls had paneling over them. Now taken down the walls have black glue all over and many repairs to get done. should I just take down the plaster walls and put in batt insulation and wall board. Or should I try to fix the walls and have blown in insulation? Or should I just have blown in insulation and then drywall right over the plaster?

I always believed that if you do it right in the beginning you will never regret it. Take down the all the plaster, install proper wiring, cable tv lines, telephone line and insultation with a vapor barrier. Then simply drywall and you have at minimal cost the perfect job.Not any added cost just labor to remove it which may be less than trying to repair
