Start Ceiling popcorn updating

Ceiling popcorn updating

Our painters are not subcontractors, college kids, or well-intentioned handymen. We have always been fully licensed, bonded, and insured, with no claims to date. We may not show up in a suit and tie, but you will be comfortable with the people in and around your home.

This photo shows the type of patching work that I’m always amazed at how many popcorn ceilings HAVEN’T been painted.

I mean, it’s been upward of 50 years and the damn thing is still in it’s sprayed-on state – WHO DOES THIS!

Perhaps paint is peeling, water damage is creating mold, or you’re just plain sick of the old popcorn ceiling.

Similar to wallpaper removal, popcorn ceiling removal is a time intensive process.

From the moment you contact us, to the final hand shake for a job well done, we look forward to meeting you and working with you on your next painting project.

They say everything comes back in style, but I’m pretty sure cottage cheese ceiling texture isn’t one of those things. This style of texture is also known as popcorn, or more formally as acoustic or stucco ceiling.

The house I grew up in had this texture, and a couple of rooms in the first house I bought did too.

Via The Instructables Now usually I’m all unicorns and lollipops when it comes to decorating and updating, but I’m not here to blow rainbows up your toosh (sad but true), so I’m going to tell it like it is…and it ain’t always good. Before 1989* (so I wasn’t even born yet…uh-huh) asbestos was a common ingredient in popcorn ceilings (and many other household products). There are home kits you can buy to test for asbestos (Do you know why popcorn ceilings were created?

They aren’t just for acoustic value, they were also created for lazy drywallers and builders who were overjoyed when they discovered that they didn’t have to be as precise with their finishing as the popcorn finish would hide all of their sins.

So, if you decide to scrape the popcorn off and are lucky enough that your ceiling is unpainted – consider yourself blessed. Well, you’d better hope that it scrapes off easily.
