A Handyman Helping Hand

Drywall paper peeling

I have recently scraped a textured covering off my porch ceiling and needed to do some touch-up taping afterward. When applying the tape and compound, it soon began to pull the paper covering off the sheetrock and fall off, leaving nearly bare sheetrock exposed. I've been told this may be due to a moisture problem, which I will investigate, but in the meantime are there any suggestions for repairing the joints or should I re-rock over the drywall that's there?
