Would you like your popcorn ceiling texture removed and a nice clean smooth finish behind?
Why should I remove my popcorn ceilings? JOE
1 ) Smooth ceilings instantly add value to your property
2 ) Smooth ceilings add natural light to your living space
3 ) Smooth ceilings do not trap allergens and dust, but textured ceilings do
4 ) Smooth ceilings have greater visual appeal than textured ceiling
5 ) Smooth ceilings can be cleaned if needed, not the case with textured ceilings
6 ) In case of a leak or damage, a smooth ceiling can be repaired and matched perfectly
7 ) Textured ceilings prior to 1980 often contained asbestos
8 ) Textured ceilings are far more likely to harbor cob webs (spider webs)
9 ) Textured ceilings are associated with aggravating asthma symptoms
First. . .we hang plastic to keep dust and debris in the work space as much as possible. This will help to contain the mess. We also cover floor surfaces and cabinets tightly to protect them from all the dust.
Second. . .we wet down the ceiling. This step loosens the bond between the ceiling and the texture and enables us to more easily scrape the ceiling clean.
Third. . .the ceiling (once all texture is removed) is skim coated to float out seams and other problem areas. This sometimes needs to be done twice, depending on the condition of the ceiling.
Fourth. . .the ceiling is then sanded smooth, ready to paint, or a hand-troweled texture can be applied.
