The contractor will help with coordinating and/or performing:

Remove stipple/popcorn, patch and paint ceiling.

I just bought a 1987 townhouse and I'm looking for someone that will remove the stipple/ popcorn on the ceiling, smooth and patch where needed and paint the ceiling. About 400 sq ft of popcorn to remove and about 600 sq ft to paint (the ceiling in the powder room and kitchen is already smooth but still needs paint).

Depending on cost ( I have no idea how much this type of thing costs) I might also consider doing the second floor too.
