Remove wallpaper or replace drywall? Which cheaper?

4 years ago

Hi--I am considering purchasing a 1989 home that has several rooms of wallpaper. Would it be cheaper to have the wallpaper removed or to just replace the drywall?

The wallpaper in the bathrooms appear to be full walls of paper. The dining room is completely wallpapered, and there is a room that has wallpaper on the bottom half of the wall.

What would you do? I am not the handiest, so I think I would have to pay someone to do this.

Thank you.
