Default Ceiling Painting Advice

Need done painting advice from some experts. Iím painting our high ceilings and Iím going to have to do it in stages due to the need to dismantle scaffolding and frankly inability to isolate all room down stairs. It pretty much a continuous ceiling.

Iím planning to roll the long way with the light from our windows using Pittsburgh flat mocha. Itís always blended well but Iím concerned as there could be days as I move room to room and wife is set on doing it in sections.

If I feather out where I end do you think I can make it look good on a textured ceiling. Figuring the can lights and texture will help

if those rooms have the same ceiling you will notice where you start and end and start back up again. You should always paint over a wet paint when moving in sections. Ceilings are especially bad about showing that and even more so with flat.

Been in the paint business for 15 years,Use a paint specifically for ceilings. They have less sheen then the flat wall paints. Stopping and starting days apart, your almost guaranteed to have lap marks. If you have areas that have heavy shadowing on the ceiling, this can help hide some marks. Avoid stopping in well lit areas.

All depends on how much paint is currently on the mud/texture. Basically builder painting is a "primer"........I say with flat you're fine....

I did the majority of my house (14' ceilings) with a power roller. What a whoopin. Last entertainment room I went with spray nozzle. Much easier and came out better. It was an eggshell not flat btw.
