Re: Painting An Open Basement Ceiling


Weve done it a few times. Two flat black and one cream color. Go flat black! We wiped all the duct work and copper with alcohol and sprayed Smart Prime (2 coats) then the black (3 coats). Have no experience with pex.

I would triple the material amount and double the labor.

We ended up getting a weed sprayer (pump type) with a long wand to get into some of the small areas. You have to cut it quite a bit, but it will work.

Its a PITA but I like the look.

The homeowner should also be made aware of noise problems you no longer have a sound barrier of any kind to the first floor.

Good luck!

Re: Painting An Open Basement Ceiling


I'm not sure oil base would be appropriate for romex...anyone feel the same?

I was hoping you wouldn't. That was aimed at the guys complaining about getting oil off of their faces.
