I am currently renting a circa 1920-1930 Craftsman style home. Among other problems, I need to paint !! Looks like previous homeowners / renters have painted over wallpaper in some areas, plaster in others. The surface coating on all (most) walls at this time is a latex that is, in a lot of places (especially wood trim) peeling. My assumption is latex over oil without a primer. Places where there is wallpaper under is bubbling and pulling away from wall, or cracking on seams. What is the best way to handle .. I am assuming, without making us all "as..." that there will also be mildew under the coats that have piled up in almost 80 years .. living in the Coastal Plain of NC .. need to know products and methods that really work .. low on cash but the house is SCREAMING for some TLC (they painted over all of the interior woodwork trim, not to mention PAINTING the exterior cedar shingles with an exterior latex paint - HELP !!!! (I have approx 3400 sq ft to deal with .. a room at a time)-- PRETTY MUCH KNOW I'LL BE DEALING WITH LEAD TOO -- What is the best way, as a do-it-yourselfer to attack this problem, heat or chemical removal ?? Won't sand due to that potential.

A good remover to use would be either Peel Away 1 or 7, and you would want to try these out and see which one works th ebest for your situation. If there is a Duron Paint store in your area thye will be able to help you out.
This sounds like a great house, so have fun fixing it up.
