plaster ceiling repair.


I had beams in my living room removed. The nail holes were filled with spackle and more spackle was used to smooth the ceiling. A coarse roller was used to texterize the repaired portion of the ceiling. It was then painted twice. The repaired spackle is too corase and is very different from the rest of ceiling. How do I repair this mess? I had different contractors with various solutions and hugely different pricing. MY second floor small bathroom plaster ceiling has cracks and also needs repair. A suggestion of bead board was given which I do not especially like.

Agree that pics are necessary on the living room. As for the bath, hang a layer of drywall over the existing ceiling and finish to suit your taste....

I had a few contractors in and have different options. Just replaster over the existing plaster by hand with an applied adhesive or spray on the new plaster. Will it stick? There is no cost difference to speak of.

For the bathroom, going to use the mesh to cover cracks and then spackle or replaster? Leaning toward replaster. Do not want to lose ceiling height.

New drywall will only lower your ceiling 1/4" to 1/2" depending on what thickness drywall you use...
