Please help - wallpaper removal and drywall issue

18 years ago

My drywall contractor is supposed to remove the wallpaper and prepare the surface for painting in the kitchen and bathroom. He removed the top thicker layer of wallpaper, leaving the thin paper layer. On one wall, he then spread drywall mud over the surface in a texture. He plans to do the same on the other walls, regardless of whether there is drywall or paint underneath the wallpaper. He said the next step is to put primer on the textured surface. Is this method correct or will it result in problems later on. I live in northern Florida, and he said this is how it is done in Florida.
