Ceiling texture – knockdown after painting?
Can I apply texture over finish paint, in case I am not happy with an attempt at a smooth finish?
This job is all new drywall, newly hung directly on studs/rafter/strapping.
I’m hiring a mudder/taper to finish my drywall job, and he highly recommends a knockdown finish for the cathedral ceiling. The ceiling extends beyond the living room over 2 lofts where there people will be much closer to the ceiling, possibly touching it with their hands.
I originally wanted smooth finish, but that’s a lot of work/$$ and this is a 100 year old cottage . It’s pretty solid, especially since it was spray foam insulated. There’s some wave to the stud walls, but the ceiling was reinforced with a full beam and the drywall is hung on strapping. It looks pretty straight to me.
