I stripped off the popcorn in order to re-tape joints that weren't done properly. I've used Zinseer 123 Latex primer over the fresh work. The drywall work turned out fairly well. I may re-spray texture on the ceiling at some point.
The local home improvement store recommended Behr Premium Latex ceiling paint. The counter man said it was thicker and filled better than most ceiling paint. The cost is about 50% more than cheaper ceiling paints.
At some point, I may texture the ceilings. For now, I just plan to paint.
Is there much difference in ceiling paints. I don't mind $6 more a gallon if I gain something out of it.
What do you guys think? If you don't recommend Behr, what do you recommend?
