We have a 4-plex that started on fire. The sheetrock in a couple of units was saved. To lock in the smoke odor, we were told we need to use a shellac primer. However, we would like to texture the walls. Should I apply the shellac first, then texture, prime, and paint or can I texture the walls first, shellac, then paint? Any suggestions are appreciated.
Typically, as with new drywall, the drywall is primed before applying texture. Priming allows for even, proper drying of the texture. Shellac would do the same thing. So I would shellac, texture, prime, paint.
