I've spent years as a professional ceiling guy & I wouldn't recommend using it for that. You'll most likely want a smooth faced hammer head.
Crappy hammer, don't waste your money
This one is condsidered a framing hammer, with a waffled face. DeWalt also has this in a 12 oz. finishing hammer with a smooth face.
The 14 oz. has a waffle face and is a framing hammer. The 12 oz. is the smooth face finishing hammer.
