Popcorn Ceiling Removal Without The Mess

“Popcorn ceiling” also referred to as “cottage cheese ceiling” or “acoustic ceiling” is an expression used to describe a spray-on procedure used from the 1950’s through the 1980’s in most North American residential and commercial construction. Popcorn ceilings were primarily used in bedroom, living room and hallway ceilings, whereas kitchen and bathroom ceilings were usually finished in a smooth method allowing for easy cleaning. Popcorn ceilings were mainly used for their capacity to hide imperfections along with its noise reduction characteristics and its bright white appearance.

Popcorn ceilings are bumpy and not easy to clean consequently collecting a lot of dirt, dust and germs that may create allergies and respiratory symptoms. Popcorn ceilings are out of style plus grow to be flaky, crumble and deteriorate with age. Popcorn ceilings are also very porous therefore making it very difficult to repair or repaint. Most homeowners choose to replace or update their popcorn ceilings with either a knock-down texture or the fresh and modern smooth finish.

Popcorn ceiling removal can be a messy job if not performed properly; hence preparation is the most significant and critical part of the task which will help eliminate the mess. All walls, flooring, furniture and fixtures have to be securely protected and covered from floor to ceiling with plastic sheeting or drop cloths to prevent any damage. If the preparation is not done correctly it can likely end up damaging your flooring, furniture, fixtures and walls thus leaving you in a worst situation than you started with. When you hire the pros at Ross Brothers, you can rest assured that we will protect and safeguard your personal effects as if they were our own. As a result of our impeccable attention to detail, Ross Brothers will finish the job with no mess or clutter.

Once the preparation is appropriately completed the popcorn ceiling removal process begins. The popcorn texture is sprayed with enough water and then scraped clean from the drywall so the popcorn texture falls directly unto the plastic sheeting or drop cloths on the floor. As soon as the drywall is completely dry, we check for any visible holes, imperfections, cracks, or joints and repair, patch or compound them accordingly. Afterwards we sand the repairs done to the drywall to create an evenly leveled surface thus avoiding any inconsistencies. Following the imperfection repairs to the drywall on the ceiling we will apply the ceiling style chosen by the homeowner; either the contemporary knock-down texture or the beautiful smooth finish.
