I want to cover the textured ceiling instead of removing it. What is the best route?

Hello Jessie,

The best way would be to cover it with a beautiful Stretch Ceiling -> NO mess / NO furniture removal / quick & clean installation process.

Check our website www. for details.

Best regards,

Hellow Jessie,

Axel is not wrong. Stretch ceilings are the most amazing products available for ceilings.

If you're looking for a more budget friendly alternative to those you can do the following

1. Test stipple for asbestos (if home built before 1986)

2. Install 1/2" drywall (no thinner)(consider strapping ceiling)

3. Tape mud and sand

4. Prime entire ceiling and overlap onto walls (to properly seal angles and prevent future cracking

5. Paint ceiling

6. Repaint walls

Note: if your stipple contains asbestos you do not want to cut alter or abrade the stipple in any way. Not even to put new drywall overtop.
