I did post also in paint but I am looking for specific information. Is is possible to remove paneling if you believe it was glued to the plaster board/or it has just been on so long that it is stuck. I know when you remove wallpaper you can use a steam machine to help, is there such a thing to heat up the wood paneling to help it come off easy. I really am not a paneling person. If anyone has any ideas please send them along. I also do not wish to paint it as a friend of mine has and it is beginning to buckle. Thanks.

If the paneling was glued to the wall then it was done with a panel adhesive. If this is true then you won't be able to remove the paneling without hurting the wall or leaving the glue on the drywall! The best thing to do would be to replace the drywall! Sorry, but that glue is a bear!!!
