Question: I’m putting a new texture finish on my bedroom ceiling and would like to know if I need to paint over the textured finished ceiling?
Answer: I believe this is a matter of choice. Some people just leave the texture as their finish. We always paint over the texture. I believe it seals the ceiling and protects the texture. Later, if you get the ceiling dirty it makes it more probable that you can wash it without doing damage to the textured surface. This also makes it easier to touch up if you accidently make a mark on the ceiling that you can’t wash off.
