best way to handle a plaster popcorn ceiling


ya i was kind of assuming it was the plaster board and not true lathe and plaster thats why i said try a stud finder because it will read the studs. either way i'd go over the ceiling to save lots of time and $$ or do the nasty and rip it down. you could start ripping it down and you say forget this crap prince was right it does suck and at that point strap the section you have down and go over top. you can also tear out areas where there are electrical and replace it because with that time period aluminum wiring was the big thing and i know in my area of the world if you buy a house with that type of wiring in it the insurance company wont even insure you until its changes and updated to copper.
