Question I think the word is sheetrock

I had a very bad vendor install formica over what I think is
sheetrock. The formica he installed did not stick and buclkes
making a horrible wall. I have every other wall covered with
36" formica to prevent my darling dogs from messing this
place up. Why did this vendor fail in ONE new room?

That being said, what do I do now to take off the formica
and have it reinstalled . This particular piece is only 1 foot high......The others that worked by other vendors was 36" high.

Something is wrong with this picture (vendor)

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEElp

Try peeling the formica off gradually-anything you can do to cut the adhesive without pulling the paper off the drywall will help. If some paper is loose remove it before reapplying the formica which must be cleaned of all old adhesive before reapplying. The cleaner depends on the type of adhesive used. I would probably try mineral spirits.
