Remove Your Old Popcorn Ceiling

You don’t have to live with the outdated look of a textured ceiling.

Love your ceiling again!

Repair or remove your popcorn ceilings. Your home will be dustless

I have been in the popcorn texture business for many years. I started spraying ceilings in the 1980’s. Popcorn ceilings were very popular back then. So I know first hand about the underlying conditions when applying a popcorn texture and the dangers when removing it.

Most ceilings that were sprayed with a texture only had two coats of joint compound not three, as is standard practice for smooth ceilings. Also, the angle tape on the ceiling side is never floated. That is why you need an experienced drywall contractor to handle the final skim coat, float the top angle in the corners, skim over all screws, and sand it all smooth with a dustless sander.

There’s no reason your ceiling can’t be perfect. When an old popcorn texture is removed we make sure all the continuity areas will be repaired. Drywall finishing is a final product, if not done properly every ceiling joint will show through the primer and paint.
