Question DetailsAsked on 12/8/2014

How much does it cost to have ceilings mudded and painted with a smooth finish?Assume popcorn has just been removed

We are having our popcorn ceilings removed and want to have a painter come and provide a smooth looking finish on the ceiling. Does anyone know the cost per square foot of the mudding and painting? Or perhaps just the mudding by itself?

The mudding would be adrywall contractor or plasterer (latter better for this case) - very few painters (none I know) do more than incidental patching of drywall/plaster.
Hint - I recommend staying away from true flat surfaces except in kitchens where easy cleaning is very important, because the proximity of your eyes to the ceiling, looking along its surface obliquely, make any imperfection stand out - MUCH more aesthetic in general to have a textured surface to at least some extent so imperfections do not stand out. Here are some links to previous answered questions about redoing/removing popcorn ceilings FYI:
