I'm thinking of buying a house, with one minor (but very annoying) problem.
It looks like the owners of the house deceided to texture the ceiling
themselves. Normal textured ceiling is not perfect I know but this is
really bad. Instead of having the "sponge" marks side by side or evenly
spaced these are sometimes 3" sometimes 8" apart. And the amount of plaster
that hangs down in places is more than 1 1/2", and others barely even
noticable that they sponged the spot.
Is this something I could redo myself? Or would I just make it worse.
Anybody ever done it before? I've done drywall walls but never textured
I'm expecting a huge mess from sanding off what's already there. Thought
I'd try the create a room using the plastic sheets and put the shopvac
inside to suck up the dust. Saw something similar on the DIY channel.
I'm going to call a couple drywall contracters and see what they'd charge to
do it, anybody know off hand what the last ceiling they had textured cost
per sq ft?
I'm in Columbus OH if anybody is curious.
Thanks for your ideas. This newsgroup is pretty entertaining to read.
