Newbie here… i’m a novice drywaller, and doing a bathroom renovation. Drywall had paneling glued to it. I’ve done some skim coating in the past, but wondering if it might be easier just to tear out and hang new drywall, versus scraping the glue, priming and skimming. Thoughts?

that bathroom is huge! looks commercial? could you get away with 1/2" board? if so, then laminate over with 1-5/8" screws. too much work to skim that nightmare. and yes, scrape off glue.

Scrape the glue off coat with 1/4 or 3/8 sheets, make sure added material works fixtures depth.

Bathroom reno you should rip it all out. Any mold or bad smells wont go away with just a little bit of mud on top.

Unless there's a financial limitation you should go all the way.
