First time post and hopefully I can get some help. Let me start off with the back story.
First time home buyer and was in my attic trying to find something. Unfortunately I stepped through my ceiling and I had to get it repaired. I hired a drywall contractor and he came out and patched the ceiling fine. When I attempted to put the same paint on it was flashing. I checked a few forums and they said I should have primed first. Thankfully the contractor was a nice guy and came back and saw the issue. He redid the patch and textured (orange peel) and I primed the ceiling after a day. I painted it again but the same issue happened! I put several coats and used a wool thick roller to the point that it looked terrible. I called a few people up and they stated the issue is with the product the contractor is using is not meant for ceilings and is flashing because of that. SO I hired a different contractor and he redid the area and sprayed the paint on for me. 3 days later is not flashing but you can see where it is still. The texture is off and the paint doesn't look like it covers the non textured areas (if that makes sense) Since he only sprayed the paint once should I attempt to put another coat? Should I sand it down a little bit? Would like any type of advice.
