What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

Reminiscent of eras past, popcorn ceilings aren’t for everyone. Find popcorn ceiling removal services at Painter1! Popular in older homes as a method to cover up structural flaws, “popcorn ceilings” resemble cottage cheese or popcorn kernels, but are generally made with stucco. These ceilings were a time efficient construction method that helped reduce noise between rooms. As construction and residential painting methods have evolved, we now have better, more aesthetically pleasing ways to put in the ceilings for each room and control sound in our homes.

Why Do People Have Popcorn Ceilings In Their Homes Removed?

There are a number of reasons why people want to have popcorn ceilings removed from the interiors of homes.


Many popcorn ceilings from older homes may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a blanket term that refers to several types of fibrous materials known for heat resistance and durability and used to be added to many different parts of the building process. Unfortunately, asbestos was later found to be a leading cause of lung disease, scarred lungs and lung cancer. Not all kinds of asbestos have the same level of toxicity and you can be around asbestos that isn’t disturbed without health concerns, but many homeowners don’t want to take that risk, so they choose to have their popcorn ceilings safely replaced.

If your home was built prior to the 1978 Clean Air Act, which prohibited the use of asbestos in building materials, it would be wise to replace the ceiling with help from professionals who can keep you and your family safe from health hazards.

The most common reason modern homeowners remove their popcorn ceiling is for aesthetic purposes: they’re just not in fashion anymore! A popcorn ceiling dates a home very quickly, and many homeowners choose to have popcorn ceiling removal to give their home a more sleek, professional finish.

Popcorn ceilings are notoriously difficult to repair without the repair being obvious. If your ceiling sustains water damage, for instance, it is nearly impossible to match the repair with the rest of the ceiling, making the patch glaringly obvious. This is unsightly on its own, but can also make selling the house more difficult, as it draws attention to previous water damage.

Popcorn ceilings create harsh shadows and disrupt the flow of light to a room, making a room appear darker and smaller than it actually is. Plus, popcorn ceilings tend to fade with time, further emphasizing that darkening effect. A room with a smooth ceiling lets in more light and, as a result, feels bigger and more inviting.

Popcorn ceilings are notoriously difficult to clean. In fact, they are havens for dust collection, while smooth ceilings are far easier to dust and wipe down. Many clients report being able to breathe more easily in their homes after having popcorn ceilings replaced, largely thanks to their rooms being more dust free.

For homeowners with asthma, small children, or frequent colds, having a popcorn ceiling replaced is a great option. Additionally, the popcorn texture can start falling off as time passes, leaving flecks from your ceiling on your furnishings and floor - more mess!

Removing popcorn ceilings increases the resale value of your home! Whether you are looking to move soon or want to invest in your future, popcorn ceiling removal is an excellent way to help your home sell faster.

How Are Popcorn Ceilings Removed?

If a popcorn ceiling has not been painted, the process is fairly straightforward. First, the ceiling is saturated with water, which helps the popcorn texture be easy to scrape off. If the ceiling has been painted, then the paint has to be stripped first or the water won’t be able to help separate the popcorn texture from the ceiling itself.

We use a special paint stripper designed for popcorn ceilings. This stripper is brushed or rolled on to the surface of the ceiling and is designed not to drip away. After it has soaked in, we are then able to scrape away the texture. It is important that the ceiling be kept consistently wet to make the removal safe and healthy for everyone in the house.

Although this process can be done independently, the long hours spent on a ladder combined with hunting down the right tools and supplies leads many homeowners to hire experts. Hiring the experts of Painter1 not only saves you several trips to the hardware store, but many hours of work and frustration. We guarantee a professional finish and top-notch customer service every step of the way.


Benefits Of Hiring Painter1

Replacing a popcorn ceiling isn’t a particularly difficult task, but it is extremely time consuming and messy. By hiring the experts at Painter1, you can save yourself hours of frustration and, instead, sit back and leave the climbing and cleanup to us. We take care of covering and protecting your belongings and ensure a neat finish the first time. You’ll be amazed at what a difference popcorn ceiling removal will make for your house.

Lisa was very helpful in selecting the colors that would go well with our interior fixtures. Her crew worked well together and did a great job repairing damaged sections of the walls so after paining, all the damage was gone. Job was started and completed on schedule and project manager, Christian, was very helpful and performed a detailed inspection when the paining was completed.

Lisa and her crew are the best. They were timely, responsive and very professional. The interior of our new home looks amazing. It was painted a dark cream and green and they turned everything into our beautiful custom white. They also painted our cabinets and entertainment system. The house is completely transformed, the previous owner won't even recognize it. Everyone who has seen our home are shocked that the cabinets and entertainment system were brown before. Lisa, Christian, Orlen, you guys are the best in the business. Use them, you won't regret it.

I was very pleased with the job that Painter1 did on my rooms. They painted some cabinets and book shelves and the walls in the family room and kitchen. They did an excellent job on the baseboards and the woodwork around the windows. The lines are all crisp and look brand new! I would recommend them to my friends.
