T&G paneling on Stucco ceiling
 
Hello,
I am thinking about installing tounge and groove pine paneling on my ceilings which are stucco. I would like to know how to go about this with out removing the stucco. I feel the stucco will not allow the boards to sit flush. I was thinking that I could install particle board (or something) on the ceilng first. Then nail the boards over that. Let me know if anyone has any advice or experience with this.

Thanks,
Anthony

I would frame it down with 2x material first, it will give you an even surface

By 'stucco', do you really mean popcorn texture? Or is it the typical trowled texture?

I would avoid attaching particle board...you would be adding a lot of weight....and unless your really careful about how you attach it....by the time you add the T&G....I would be concerned about fastners holding it.

I would attach directly to the ceiling. I'm assuming your going to use 3/4" thick wood....it has enough stiffness that it will smooth out any bumps. To be sure...take a drywall sanding block and run it over the entire ceiling to remove any high spots..

Also....make sure you use long enough nails....figure the T&G is 3/4"....your ceiling drywall is at least 5/8" + texture (assume 3/4" total). You want a min of 1" penatration into the ceiling joist....so your looking at a 2 1/2" finishing nail.

Is it real stucco or does it just look like stucco?

I'm sure what "tongue and groove pine panelling" is. What is it?:)

Thank you for the information.
It is the trowled texture, not popcorn. I thought it may be heavy but I am trying to avoiding sanding because it will be a huge mess. If the 3/4" thickness will work better than I will use that.
