I'm not sure on being "skilled" and there are a couple of opps but no creases. In the main area I had a few bubbles, not sure if I really want to call them bubbles more like it just wasn't smooth. It took about 3 months and it sort of tightened up over time. Maybe I stretched the vinyl a little putting it on and it finally relaxed. There was one section in the main area that we really messed up on. Had to remove the vinyl again, wire brush all the foam etc and start over.
It was a bummer for sure but we got past it.
I also ended up with a crease of sorts in the bedroom. All in all it's soooo much better than the ceiling held up with thumb tacks and staples and no where near the $5 ~ 7K estimate I got for paying someone to do it.
