Is it brand new rock? Why do you want orange peel? Do you mean pop corn?
I don't really do side work, but I've been finishing rock & painting for the last 24 years. I definately prefer slick ceilings, but most people can't finish them flat. Ceiling mounted lights shows all imperfections & texture looks better.
Give me some more details & I ask if anybody wants the work.

No it is not new rock
I want Orange peel
No I do not mean pop corn
I also prefer slick, but orange peel covers minor flaws
as far as texture looking better, I agree to a point... pop corn looks horrible.

As far as more details....... about 1500 Sq Ft 8 ft ceilings, pop corn has already been removed, I am living in the house so can only do 2 or 3 rooms at a time (finish a couple rooms and I can have everything moved to start on the next rooms the next day).

I am NOT looking to get reamed like the quote I just received. I know there are people out there that do good work that need cash. Finding them however is a chore.

Just to be clear for anybody that I talk too. You just want orange peel resprayed on existing ceilings. Your going to paint them yourself?

They also need to be floated. I do not need any painting.

I was kinda hoping to get someone that needed money so it would help them out. I do not mind paying a fair price, but if I have to pay it would be nice to help someone in the process.

Well, I guess I've been at this hospital too long. All the amigos have left AL. That's a good thing, but I can't find anybody to help. It's been 3 years since I've talked to any contractors so I don't even know a decent price.
Just touch up the bad spots & spray the ceilings yourself. The money you save will easily pay for a harbor freight compressor & hopper (sprayer). It's not hard.
