What Does Popcorn Ceiling Mean?
Unsure about whether or not your home has what’s classified as a popcorn ceiling? We can help! It’s highly likely that if your home was built in the 70s or 80s it has this style of ceiling, as it was very popular. It consists of small rough bumps all over the ceiling, giving it texture. The reason it was used at the time was that it hides imperfections like dents or otherwise so the builders wouldn’t have to make the ceiling perfect. It also added another layer for more sound proofing. Now, however, there are other ways that are much more appealing to achieve this.
Should I Get Them Removed?
There are multiple reasons as to why you might want to go ahead and get rid of these types of ceilings. One is potential danger, due to the fact that these types of ceilings were made with asbestos in the 70s. Aside from the health risk, it also can yellow fairly easily, especially if there’s any moisture. It also simply is just not a modern look, and may be holding back your home’s overall beauty. This is particularly of importance if you want to sell it eventually.
We’ll Tend To Everything
Removing popcorn ceiling can be rather complicated, which is why it’s best to allow professionals like us to do it for you! We’ll first test to see if there is in fact any asbestos present so we can plan accordingly and take precaution. Plastic will also be used to cover your furniture, as it will be a messy job and this lets us clean up after easily. If the texture isn’t painted, water can be used to dissolve it for simple removal. Otherwise, dry scraping will have to be done. Our experts will then sand the substrate to smooth it before priming and painting!
