POPCORN CEILING REMOVAL
Popcorn ceiling removal is a hassle for homeowners. Without the proper equipment, it can be a giant mess with mixed results. If it was installed before 1979, there’s even a possibility it contains asbestos. We have been handling this type of service for our clients for 24 years.
POPCORN CEILING REMOVAL PROCESS
Because it can be such a mess, we remove or cover all furniture and other items from the room. This prevents you from having to do any clean up. Using polyplastic, we seal off the room from floor to ceiling. It’s important to protect the flooring, so a waterproof drop cloth will be used.
Using special equipment, we’ll spray down the ceiling. Moistening the texture will make popcorn ceiling removal easier because it breaks the adhesive bond that was used during installation. This process is labor intensive because it typically requires scraping the texture off by hand. We meticulously work through small sections at a time to ensure no area of the ceiling gets too damp and causes permanent damage. Using smaller tools, we carefully perform popcorn ceiling removal around the edges of the room and in the corners.
Once all of the texture has been removed from the ceiling and the area has dried, we begin creating an even, smooth surface. We may use putty or primer, depending on the specifics of the project, and fill any divots, cracks or uneven spots. In some cases, we may even sand areas to ensure optimal smoothness to prepare for the painting of the new ceiling.

Our services are backed up by a 3-year written warranty, guaranteeing that you are covered if our paint chips, peels or flakes.

The team at Carnival Painting took great care of us and our brand new home! We were anxious to find the right team to install the crown molding in our home and we certainly found the best team for the job. They were so professional, worked quickly and efficiently and we were so thrilled with the results! The house looks fantastic and we highly recommend the Carnival Painting team to anyone in the DFW area! Thank you for going above and beyond to make our new home look spectacular!
Your careful, competent team of professionals came out and worked very hard getting the house ready to paint. They were able to get most of it done by Monday evening. They completed everything early Tuesday afternoon. Above and beyond, they helped handle a problem discovered after removing one of the boards in the back and painted the area inside the house near the stairs as well! The house looks great and I am quite pleased and will certainly recommend Carnival to my friends and neighbors.
We just had our house painted and had numerous exterior repairs made and I wanted to give everyone the info [on Carnival Painting] for who did the work as we were VERY happy with their work and service. They were very timely and professional and did a great job – the house looks great, if I do say so myself!
