Heavy sanded finish
« on: October 22, 2015, 01:24 PM »
I have a home and all the walls are finished with a heavy sanded pattern finish. What is the best way to knock this down? I have attached a photo. I have some drywall repairs to do and the 80 grit on my RO 125 would not cut through it. Any ideas?

It is very hard to blend in a textured surface without making it look like a patch; it's much easier to match smooth surfaces.  Is it plaster or sheetrock?  If a Rotex can't knock that flat, maybe skimming it smooth would work for you or it might be less work just to replace with new (if it's sheetrock and not-plaster).
