If the walls in the area you plan to remodel are in really bad shape, you might want to consider an alternative to the usual wall repair and preparation. Before you, or a painter, invest a couple of days patching, filling and sanding, and you pay for all that labor, consider applying a wall covering. There are now wall coverings available that are made of glass filaments. These can be applied quickly and easily. They are non-toxic, and they will add strength and durability to the wall surface as they cover chips and scratches. These new wall coating materials are made in several types of finish and they are easy to paint. Before you commit time or your money to extensive wall repair, you might want to price these new coatings and crunch the numbers. You will probably find that you will save a large amount by choosing the covering.
