Popcorn Ceiling Removal
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.
After Popcorn Ceiling Removal
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.
Before we begin your popcorn ceiling removal project, we’ll discuss the details of painting the ceiling. When you paint a ceiling, it can have a dramatic effect on the room. Ceilings in small rooms can be painted the same color as the walls to make the room feel bigger. Low ceilings can be painted a pale shade to make them seem higher. High ceilings can be painted a dark color to make the room seem warmer. With 20 years of experience in residential painting, we can give you expert guidance when choosing the right color.
At this point in the popcorn ceiling removal process, we can primer the ceiling and then paint using your selected color. We use products from brands that have been around for decades like Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and Behr.
Once painting is complete, we clean up the area thoroughly. This includes removing all waste, all of our equipment and moving your furniture and belongings back into the room. You won’t have to lift a finger. And as popcorn ceiling removal contractors we are polite, friendly and efficient.
