roll vs spray on knockdown.


Is it safe to roll prime new knockdown texture, or should it be sprayed?

If it is fully dried then rolling it should not be a problem.

If you were to spray, then you should back roll. So yeah...if it is dry...you'll be fine.

I was told that if you roll it then I would risk softening the texture and pulling it back off the ceiling.

Knockdown will be fine. Now if you were talking about popcorn ceiling texture, you would want to run an oil primer over that prior to putting latex on it.

If it's a good quality job,and properly dried, it won't be an issue

Your 'adviser' has a point only inasmuch as old, neverbeenpainted popcorn, can be an issue when repainting years later

K/D is not really the same animal, and again, a fresh quality job properly dried should not be an issue

Seriously, I would not give it a second thought
