Question DetailsAsked on 4/28/2012

what do I do if I missed some spots when priming my ceiling and I have already painted it with two coats flat ceiling paint?

I had a "popcorn" type ceiling in the beginning. My sister and I scraped that off because it had some loose areas near the edge. I had someone do the taping, spackling,and sanding of the ceiling.I primed it once then had an area that had to be re-taped,spackled, and sanded because a wrinkle had developed in the taped area after the first coat of primer. At that same time the guy also went back over other areas of the ceiling to fix other little imperfections. I didn't go back and re-prime those areas for a month or so after that and apparently I didn't get all the spots that needed to be re-primed.
My sister and I painted the ceiling with flat white paint. When it dried,we noticed the several areas the were rough in appearance. We thought that we had just not gotten the ceiling coated well enough so we put on a second coat of the flat white paint. Now the spots are still there and I suspect that those may be areas that didn't get re-primed after the guy had to redo those portions.

"Rough" as in a texture problem or "rough" as in not consistent in color and sheen? If it is a paint problem you can reprime those spots and then touch up the paint, feathering the edges to blend into the previous coat. If there is inconsistency in the smoothness/texture of the ceiling itself the person you hired didn't float and sand everything properly. That'll have to be remedied and then reprimed and painted.
