Rolling over sprayed semigloss


That is what I wonder about, how easy this will be to get off since it has been painted. So far with flat latex. Maybe I will try one room and see. That is why I thought of just re-sheet rocking. Knock down is fine. I have usually shot an orange peal and it breaks thing up enough for me but I never tried it on a large room like a living room, only bedrooms and halls.

If it has been painted, the water won't penetrate as much. I usually dry scrape the best i can then, seal, skim coat ( usually at least twice) , sand , prime, look over with a light, fix as needed and then paint with a very flat paint .
Sounds like a lot- but if you know how to mud pretty much routine.

Curious, why would you seal before you skim coated? I would think it would adhere better if you just put the stuff on. That may be an option. I may even be able to straighten a hoe and scrap from the floor. I think it would still be a little rough but maybe do a knock down on top of the skim coat. This is an idea worth pondering. Do you think two coats of topping would be enough?

If it was me, but it's not, but if it was, I would check with a realtor in your area, if memory serves me well and it might not, in your area they are still using popcorn on ceilings. If they are then (and you don't know how bad it hurts to say this)then paint. Cover everything then spray on Gardz then paint. If you remove, mix some fabric softener in your water wet ceiling wait about 10 minutes and spray again, then scrap. But don't use a wide knife, the reason being a wide knife if you look down along the blade most have a curve in them, not a lot but it's there. Due to this curve and the water making everything kinda soft it's very easy for the corners to dig in then you have to go back and repair. I would suggest not bigger than a 6" knife. Good luck.

Sometimes when mud or paint is put directly on the powdery residue left from the ceiling texture, it doesn't adhere and curls up or comes loose later. Gardz is a very thin bodied penetrating sealer that will give a sound surface to whatever is to follow.
It's called insurance.
