Answer: 
There are a lot of factors involved to determine if you need a primer (color you are painting over, quality of roller covers, color you are painting the ceiling, etc.). I would recommend asking your local paint supplier and provide them your specifics.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your question. If you are painting over a light color, you probably won’t need to prime. However if you see that there are heavy stains after prepping or you’re making a drastic color change, apply a primer coat of PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Stain-Blocking Ceiling Paint first. Be sure to follow all prep and back label instructions. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

We just removed popcorn ceilings in 4 rooms with one to go. You could use this paint for painting it but if I were you I really consider removing it. No matter how you paint the popcorn ceiling it will spatter. Also if you ever get a water spot or a stain that removes the texture when cleaned, it will always show.
It is a pain to remove and you should plastic drape the ENTIRE Room with plastic ( we used the kind to cover windows that come with double sided tape) and the floor I used old plastic shower curtains I saved for drop cloths. They can be moved easy from room to room and hosed off . We wet the ceiling with water in a garden sprayer let sit for about 10 min. then used scraper and a lot of elbow grease. Bought a scraper online that U use a plastic bag on, but did not work very well for the kind of sandy texture of ours.

Answer: 
It is for plaster or popcorn celling if you don't like the popcorn celling before you paint it might be worth just taking a trowel and scraping the popcorn off it comes off really easy if it hasn't been painted. Might be worth Doing a led test before you try to scrape it off to see if there is any lead it's an inexpensive check especially if the house was built before 1978.

Dear JamesGang52,
Thanks for posting your question. You mentioned that your popcorn ceiling had never been painted, but the answer assumes that it's not brand new popcorn.
There are a couple tips for painting popcorn ceilings. First - be sure to only roll in one direction. If you pull the roller back and forth, it will dislodge the popcorn. Second - For any additional coats, make sure the first coat is 100% dry. Otherwise rewetting can dislodge material. The weight and saturation of the popcorn is a critical factor, so try to do light coats to avoid adding extra weight. We would also recommend wearing protective clothing and cover anything in case of spatter.
Another option is to spray. You can rent a sprayer at The Home Depot, and then follow the directions that come with the sprayer. Again, make sure the first coat is 100% dry before applying a 2nd coat (and apply the second coat in the opposite direction from the first coat to allow for even coverage).
We hope that helps and good luck with your project! Read Less

Yes, this paint is excellent for popcorn ceilings. However, the method of application may need to be spraying. Since the popcorn hasn't been previously sealed, it may come off using a roller because of the moisture. If you can rub your hand across a small area of the ceiling and the popcorn comes loose, then spraying is the way to apply the paint. Once you seal the popcorn, future paint application may Read More
Yes, this paint is excellent for popcorn ceilings. However, the method of application may need to be spraying. Since the popcorn hasn't been previously sealed, it may come off using a roller because of the moisture. If you can rub your hand across a small area of the ceiling and the popcorn comes loose, then spraying is the way to apply the paint. Once you seal the popcorn, future paint application may be gently rolled with a 1/2" nap roller. Be careful not to put too heavy of a coat of paint. Two light coats 24 hours apart are the best technique. Good luck with your project! Read Less

Thanks for posting your question! It is important that your new ceiling surface is ready for painting. Recommendation for new stucco, plaster and masonry is to let it cure for a full 30 days before painting. Make sure there are no active water problems and that any previous water damage is also fully dry. We also recommend reading other helpful hints on the back label.

I would wait until it is completely dry before I painted. I wouldn't want the paint to add too much weight and the ceiling come down. I am not a professional painter, so I am not sure that there isn't a sooner time to paint. I am sure someone in the paint department at Home Depot would be able to give you a more precise answer. Many of the people in the paint department are experienced professionals.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 337 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Coverage, but too much sheen, and thick paint The coverage is very good, although the paint is quite thick. It does give reflective sheen to my ceiling, as you can see the difference in my picture I uploaded. The price was good for the paint. I would recommend this paint if you need to reflect light in a not well lit room. July 28, 2016

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid this Ceiling Paint Been using Behr paint for years. Just painted our house last month. The last time we painted outside we used Behr paint and it lasted 8 yrs. This ceiling paint is not like there other products. It took 2 coats on a ceiling that was painted a light colored beige 4 yrs ago. Thought I could get 2 bedroom ceilings done with one gallon. Well that didn't happen. Going to check out another product for the 2nd bedroom. July 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Deserves a zero Seriously, who is giving this paint anything above 1 star!!?! There's no way the reviews are real. It goes on like oatmeal. Took a full can to do a SMALL bedroom ceiling AND needed a second coat. Never mind I spent 3 hours to get the ceiling done! I did second ceiling with the regular Behr ceiling on. Went on super smooth. Took an hour And only needed one coat. July 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this paint! Behr paints are my favorite. This is no exception. After removing my old popcorn texture, my ceiling now is smooth and beautiful! No problems with coverage, cleanup is easy with just water. Thanks for the great product August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid this paint I love Behr paint so was very disappointed in this ceiling paint. I painted the first coat and was disappointed to see my roller marks but thought that since the ceiling hadn't been painted in years and the way the first coat was sucked into the ceiling that I'd just need to put another coat on...so, back to HD I go to get another gallon. After adding another coat, same results. So...back to HD...got the Marquee level...we'll see how that goes today. It is a very bright white and goes on well, with little splatter. June 22, 2016
