How do I remove stucco from a ceiling painted with oil paint


I have stucco on the ceiling that has been painted over with oil bases paint. Is there a way to remove the stucco so the ceiling can just be painted.

I'm not a pro contractor, but IMHO, it would be more economical (and look much better) to cover it with 3/8" drywall, and then finish, prime and paint it.

Is this actually stucco or are you talking about "Popcorn" on the ceiling

If its popcorn you can wet it, scrape it off, and skim. If its a floated texture (skip trowled or "stucco") you're better off hanging a new ceiling over it as stated above.

How do I remove stucco from a ceiling painted with oil paint


If it is popcorn you may want to have it tested for asbestos depending on when it was applied. I had popcorn on a ceiling and wanted to remove it. I searched online for instructions on how to do it and one of the first things I found was that it would be wise to have it tested for asbestos. I did and sure enough it was there. It was used for a long time in popcorn ceilings as sort of a bonding agent. Anyway it channged my mind about removing it.

I agree with Kennedy's advice though on how to remove it.
