I recently went to bid a job for texture and the people hired to remove the popcorn did a horrible job. Now the ceiling have a lot of paper torn off and so many gouges. What would be the correct way to prep ceilings for texture?

never seen popcorn come off that hard! they must not know about wetting it down first? it should scrape off easy and clean like cottage cheese. or they were painted down? when they are painted i dont even try to remove it. it just gets scraped dry, painted, and laced. i always tried to talk them out of it though. popcorn is a nightmare anyway you look at it. i was so glad when lace replaced that crap.

warning, but im sure you know, a lot of acoustical ceilings have asbestoses in them!

like they said, prime it and touch up any deep gouges, then texture it. it will be fine.
