        Q:How can I get rid of a popcorn ceiling

        Answer This Question

        A:  Do a search on YouTube. Type ( how to remove popcorn from my ceiling ) in the search box on youtube...

        by|Mar 5, 2020

          A:  if no paint water and scrap or rent a sander for removing it.

          by|Apr 7, 2020

            A:  I have no experience with popcorn removal, but you can check out videos on same on YouTube. The pink joint compound works well for patching applications and touch-ups. For large areas you can use the 5 gallon All Purpose joint compound with the blue lid.

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  Given that most "popcorn" (and other texturing systems) present a challenging surface to work with. Best practice it to remove the existing texturing material, then clean, prime, patch, sand, re-prime and apply your finish paint coat.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Use extra fine wet or dry sand paper...suggest 600 grit....

                by|Mar 5, 2020

                  A:  yes

                  by|Oct 29, 2019

                  A:  not sure of your question. damp sponge can leave marks. wet sand is with a very fine sand paper made for wet sanding.

                  by|Apr 7, 2020

                    A:  The "wet sanding" method employs essentially the same techniques as normal drywall sanding, however instead of sand paper or sanding mesh, a wet sanding sponge is used. A wet sanding sponge has a rough gritty side and a soft sponge on the other side. The technique is used to produce a finer finish as well as reduce the amount of dust generated.

                    by|May 3, 2023

                      A:  Wet a washcloth or piece of an old T-shirt. Place it against a wooden block like a 5 inch long 2 X 4 wood. Keep changing or washing out the cloth because it doesn't work well when clogged up.

                        This is perhaps the worst product I have ever purchased from Home Depot. It cracks when painted. The latex paint was applied after the product is fully dried. See the picture for yourself.

                          I've used this product for years and like it. Like ANY other sheetrock "mud", it shrinks as it dries, so you have to use multiple coats. If it sits on the shelf for several years, the pink color disappears, but the product still performs fine. Unlike a competing product, I've never had it grow mold in storage!

                          Do not use this product for repairs... it takes forever to dry, after 48 hours, when I went to sand it, it would. Clog up the sand paper. I had to remove it and buy a regular bag of joint compount, mixed it and applied. Next day It sand very well

                          Thank you for posting your review. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP High Performance Joint Compound. This product is designed and intended for use in the finishing of gypsum panel joints, nail heads and metal corner beads (thin "skim coating" applications). As this is a water based formula, the sole drying mechanism is the evaporation of water. Dry time can be significantly impacted by cool or humid application conditions, moisture in the application surfaces or by thick (deep) applications of the product. Likewise, you appear to be comparing two completely different chemistries/products (ready to use versus dry mix). Based on the description of the product you appear to prefer, the equivalent DAP product would be DAP FASTPATCH 30 Patching Compound Powder. Because you did not provide any details about your application, it is difficult to provide a more detailed response. At your convenience, please contact DAP's Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and to provide you with more specific usage guidance and our recommendations for an alternate product better aligned with your preferences.

                            Terrible product!!! It worked ok until we applied the drywall primer after waiting a week for the product to dry. It started cracking in a spider web-like pattern around the joints and nails. We read online that this could be fixed by sanding. So we did sand and everything looked nice and smooth again, until a week later when we finally decided to apply the texture and the paint. The cracking was even worse this time with the last layer of compound sticking to the roller and peeling off. We followed all instructions precisely and I'm now positive the cracking has nothing to do with the thickness of layers applied as the contractors who installed the drywall patched a huge portion of it with a different type of drywall mud which remained intact after applying the primer, texture and paint. This is all due a very poor quality of the product. Now we have to scrape off everything and start over.

                              This works so well, we threw away what we had left of the regular drywall mud. Faster drying, much less dust when sanding. Color change is a little benefit too for judging dryness.
