After re-wiring for new lighting, I have a few very small holes (about 1" diameter) in my popcorn ceiling in several rooms (popcorn is small and tight). I have successfully painted them over the years using a roller with no problem. I had a painter in to give me an estimate on patching these small holes. Although he hasn't responded yet, what he is suggesting seems like overkill: He will cover all the walls and floors in the rooms with plastic liner and spray the areas with popcorn patch. (He says under no circumstance should anyone paint this type ceiling with a roller, tho I have done so & the ceilings are perfect.) His approach would be a big job, considering these are just small holes, a couple in each room. Can't this be done without going to all that trouble and what I assume will be considerable expense? I would think just filling and applying popcorn patch material on these small areas would suffice. Am I missing something or does he need the money for an expensive vacation? Thanks in advance for your help.
