We just purchased a house built in the mid 70's. It appears that wood panelling was added to the bottom half of the walls. It also appears to be glued and not nailed on. What is the best way to remove the old panelling? thanks

HELLO
You can try a heat gun and wood shingles....push the shingle under the paneling a little you will see where the mastic was added and heat it, it may come off...I always find the studs and use a bar and rip it off...less time....
No matter how it comes off you will most likly have to float the walls and add texture to look like the wall on the top...best to float the wall floor to ceiling, make it looks like new and finish the way you want it yo look....Good luck
