Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Are you stuck in a house that has the old Acoustic Spray? That lovely spray texture otherwise known as popcorn ceilings or cottage cheese ceilings?

That is what we specialize in here at Acoustical Drywall Services! Removing that old popcorn ceiling. You are not alone in wanting to get them out!

Once your popcorn ceilings are removed you will be shocked at how much better your rooms will feel. They will even smell better. Did you know that popcorn ceilings hold in odors? They also hold in dirt, grime and oh yes those nasty cobwebs for the spiders to enjoy!

Mike Rath, the owner, will personally come out to your house and assess your individual needs in order to give you a firm price.  Our guaranteed quote will include the removal process, patchwork, retexturing and even painting your ceilings to give you a new look to enjoy for years to come.

Most of the time this is a two day process to transform your ceilings. We do follow Air Quality Control guidelines so if your house was built prior to 1981 it needs to be tested for asbestos. Please see my What About Asbestos page for more information. If your ceilings contain asbestos the process will take four days instead of two.

Rest assured that we will do the best, quality job with your new ceiling transformation based on the pre-existing ceiling condition. Removing those popcorn ceilings can expose things you have never noticed before such as rolls and waves in the sheetrock, water/roof leak staining, and uneven surfaces on your ceilings.

We go through the ceiling and try to find all loose sheetrock and bad tape seams. We address those issues as well as we can before we coat all of the seams and nail heads with topping compound. Then after the final touch up is done we texture your ceilings with a finish that best meets your needs.

After a good primer coat (one of the most important parts of the process) we then finish your ceilings with top of the line Kelly Moore paint. Any stock white color is included in the price. We always finish with a roller and nap – not just a sprayed on paint.

Once the ceilings are painted we finish off the project by caulking all of the inside corners giving your new ceilings a clean, finished look.

We tear down the plastic and remove all of our debris. We will even run the vacuum! We leave the house at least as clean as when we arrived – sometimes cleaner.

How do you know if your ceilings contain asbestos? 
If your ceiling was built before 1981 it is required by the air quality control inspectors of the EPA to have your ceiling tested prior to removal to ensure your family’s safety. We can help you determine whether or not your ceiling has asbestos.  Call us for more information on testing.
