Redo knockdown
We had some water damage that lead to drywall repair. Contractor re shot the entire 13x8 wall. Problem is the knockdown is very light and is not the same as the adjoining walls. I am concerned that after primer and 2 coats of paint there may not be much texture left. Does the wall need to be skim coated again before re doing kd? Contractor said he can shoot right over what's on there now??

Yeah I believe that the heavier texture is done with more than one coat

so shouldn't need to skim coat, from what I understand the 2nd layer adds to the first; instead of trying to do one thick coat.
