Top 5 reasons you might need to apply a skim coat


Here's a video I made of a few skim coating projects where I show my top 5 remodeling scenarios where you might need to apply a skim coat to the walls or ceilings. It goes from wallpaper removal, getting rid of an ugly texture, after drywall or ceiling repair, covering up a painted popcorn ceiling and even skim coating new drywall.

Let me know what you think?

Thanks for watching! -Paul

Mix, you are da bomb. I can't tell you how many times I reference you and your work with friends and fellow painters. It makes it nice when you can direct them to one of your videos for help. Sure beats weeding through the myriad of other YouTube videos when I know yours are truly helpful and spot on.

Is general purpose compound always used for this?

AP is all I use for skim coating. But, I get comments all the time from guy's saying they use the light weight with no issues.
