Help with interior construction
I have 2 rooms with cheap wood paneling, its been on the house since we bought it. I have no clue what the walls look like underneath but pretty sure its dry wall.
My question is, can I just peel the paneling off and deal with bad dry wall? by patching holes and taping up the seems?
Im trying to work on a small budget, I'm hoping I can just tear it off and sand and paint.
Looking for suggestions from people who have done this or know about this type of stuff.
I should add im no expert at this but have a friend helping me who has done it before.

they probably used an adhesive on it, and its going to **** that drywall up!
I am not sure on how you properly remove it, but I have seen some bad ones. Had to replace the drywallJEEP: The dirtiest of the four-letter words

It looks like they used small nails but maybe its glued towards the center too?

If you want them gone no choice put to pry them off and see what you're dealing with. I will guess they used some adhesive. If it was cheap you way be able to salvage the drywall with some putty and sanding. If not you're more than likely going to need to replace the drywall

How hollow does it sound? Usually wood paneling was attached directly to the stud; at least in my area. If that's the case, just take it down and put fresh drywall up. I know some people that have had success selling the paneling of craigslist.
If there's already drywall up, which I find unlikely, it will most likely be destroyed.

I just peeled back a little piece its definitely drywall but couldn't see much more than that.
You really think I can re sell this paneling? its probably 20+ years old
