painting texture ceiling


What is the best way to repaint a textured ceiing. Not sure of the texture looks like a spray. In places where it is loose there is only unpainted sheetrock. This is a bedroom so no moisture problems.

The texture ceiling is from the late 70s. How can it be repainted without removing the original texture coat. This is a bedroom ceiling. Texture looks like a spray only on unpainted sheetrock under the original coat

Your best bet is to spray it - if it's loose and you try to roll it the texture will likely peel off as you roll.

A good bonding primer and a couple of finish coats by spray application should do it.

Rcon is right; however, if you don't have access to a sprayer, roll the places that are firmly adhered and use your brush where it seems to be loose. If you're using a flat paint you won't even notice any brush marks. If some of that texture comes off the ceiling, you're gonna have trouble matching it if you go to repair it.

If you do roll it look for roller skins that are specially made for texture ceilings. The nap is a foam and has slits cut in it about 1/2" apart and doesn't require as much pressure as a regular skin would, so it doesn't "pull" on the existing texture as much. It should pretty much eliminate pulling any tight texture off. I have seen them at paint, hardware and box stores around here.
