Hi. Can the walls of a Mobile Home be painted? Thanks

Rick :

Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.

Yes they can as long as bare surfaces are primed and the proper paint is used

Customer:

What do you mean by proper paint. Can we get it at Lowes ?

Rick :

Yes you can get it from Lowes. You don't say if this is interior or exterior or the surface you're painting. Just be sure the paint is compatible with the surface you are painting

Customer:

I see. Thank you. I’m sorry, it’s for interior painting.

Rick :

You're welcome!

Customer:

Also, is there a spray paint for popcorn ceilings to brighten them up?

Rick :

I don't know what Lowes carries but a can of spray paint doesn't cover a lot. You can paint textured ceilings with a heavy nap roller

Customer:

Oh ok. Had no idea. So, Just roll the nap roller in the paint and roll across the ceiling. Will we lose much of the popcorn? Press easy , normal pressure?? Silly I know, but just curious.

Rick :

If the texture isn't loose you should lose much of anything. You'd paint it like you would any surface with a roller

Customer:

Great. You are always so helpful. Thank you and have a bless day.

Rick :

You're welcome!
