Question Ceilings

Currently I have popcorn-textured ceilings that are hot with asbestos. I have arranged for an abatement company to come in for the removal. I don't want the popcorn textured type ceiling replaced, and would love to have a basic smooth ceiling with light texturing that can be done with a trowel.

I have heard this is a huge, and difficult job. Can anyone tell me the process, and if it is a DIY type job, or should I hire a contractor?

I have heard that the asbestos ceiling can be covered with sheetrock, is anyone out there familiar with this process? Does it look okay?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

ceilings!

Katyj,

I suggest you look at this site. It was pretty good but I recommend a firm to do it. You mention popcorn texture, then you say to texture with a trowel, each is different.

Hope this helps!
