Bathroom Repair

I would like to know if there is a product that can be
purchased to remove stucco from my ceiling. What would be the next step after the stucco is removed before painting etc. I am really interested in doing this myself,please help!

I guess first questions, is the stucco (plaster) in good shape, not falling down?

If it is in good shape and you just don't like it, consider applying drywall over it, tape and paint.

If it is not in good shape, removal can be done with a flat bar but this may cause problems above like falling insulation (if applicable). Then it might be advisable to apply furring strips and then apply the drywall. If this has no insulation above, complete removal can be dne and again application of W/R drywall can be done, tape and paint.

Hope this helps!

Removing stucco

Forget it. By the time you try to remove it you will have dammaged drywall to the point where it needs to be replaced.I suggest you overly the existing ceiling. Use 1/2 inch dry wall. If mudding the corners are the problem you can use moulding to cover seams. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
