I want to paint over a textured ceiling. My wife does not like the present textured ceiling. My question is it better (easier) to remove the texture by sanding or adding drywall on top to the present. installing drop ceiling is another option i have suggested, or is just painting the present the best idea and live with it.

any help - suggestion

Painting them would definately be the easiest. Removeing the texture or adding a drop ceiling without the proper preparation and tools can be a nightmare, if you never done either before I would suggest re-searching and find out what you are getting into before attemting to do it. Painting would probably be my choice, depending.

I can advise on how to scrape and smooth the surface if its that route you want to take, but if you are not familiar with the tools, then I may suggest a pro to do certain parts. I wouldn't add a layer of rock. Re-placeing pieces as needed (if needed, your case I would say not)

As far as a drop ceiling, it would depend on which kind as to how difficult.

Hope this helps - Chip
