Should I call a handyman or plasterer to fix a crack on a popcorn ceiling?by Nancy Minter on 06/28/16
To replicate the popcorn texture requires a professional plasterer.
A lot depends on the age of the house. Depending on when it was built the ceiling could contain asbestos. If it was built before 1978 it probably has lead paint. Hiring a professional who has the right equipment and knows how to prep the site for lead and/or asbestos is the smart choice.
