Let me save you time and money not to mention aggravation - have a drywaller layer the ceiling with new 1/4 ceiling board.. clean fast and good additional sound barrier.

Franks comment is correct.

I wonder how many of us curse the invention of popcorn cielings?

Good luck with it.

Hi Frank,

Most expensive way is to install new drywall. Two ways you can approach this, if the ceiling wasn't painted you can scrape quite easy. If the ceiling is painted, you can try to scrape. Chances are it's not gonna go, then taping is what you want to do.
