Wallpaper removal vs new drywall installation and finish

Hey everyone, I’m from pittsburgh, PA but recently closed on my first OOS property in the Cincinnati area where I’ll build a rental portfolio. I chose Cincy for the development happening around the city so if there’s anyone already in the area would love to connect.

Also, I have a question about the property I just purchased. It deals with removing wallpaper but not necessarily “paper” but the green overlay seems to be more of a thick craft-paper type of material compared to wall paper which was easy to peel. So I was wondering if anyone has experience or ideas as to how to remove it and the glue behind it to reveal the walls? It only comes off in tiny pieces leaving the glue. I would really like to remove it myself but I have 1 quote from a contractor to cover that portion of the walls with a 1/4in drywall(about 6 pieces of drywall) for $600 installation + finish, the walls are about 192 sq ft plus wood trim for $200 for a total of $800
