“Popcorn” ceilings were popular several decades ago, now most of us would like to get rid of them. They take away your profits when you are ready to sell.
This may be easier than you think. Do a test spot in a small area, spray the textured ceiling with water. Soak a small area and let it soak in. You need to keep things wet to prevent dust. Using a putty knife, scrape off the popcorn. If it comes off easily you are ready for the remainder of the task. If not, it has probably been painted over and it might be easier to put another layer of drywall over it.
