I live in a 15 year old house that has unpainted stippled ceilings. They're
old and stained. I was just going to paint them, until a friend told me that
it's not a good idea. He claimed that the paint makes the stipple so heavy
it just falls off the ceiling, resullting in a ceiling that looks like hell
and will need to be redone entirely.
As a result, now I have 4 questions:
1) Is it correct? Will paint make the stipple fall off?
2) If so, is there any way to get a stippled ceiling cleaned or painted at
3) If it can't be cleaned, how difficult is it to get of the stipple
entirely and be done with it?
4) Are there tools that make the job easier if I need to get rid of the
Thanks in advance.
