What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

Reminiscent of eras past, popcorn ceilings aren’t for everyone. Find popcorn ceiling removal services at Painter1 in Austin! Popular in older homes as a method to cover up structural flaws, “popcorn ceilings” resemble cottage cheese or popcorn kernels, but are generally made with stucco. These ceilings were a time efficient construction method that helped reduce noise between rooms. As construction and residential painting methods have evolved, we now have better, more aesthetically pleasing ways to put in the ceilings for each room and control sound in our homes.

Why Do People Have Popcorn Ceilings In Their Homes Removed?

There are a number of reasons why people want to have popcorn ceilings removed from the interiors of homes.


Many popcorn ceilings from older homes may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a blanket term that refers to several types of fibrous materials known for heat resistance and durability and used to be added to many different parts of the building process. Unfortunately, asbestos was later found to be a leading cause of lung disease, scarred lungs and lung cancer. Not all kinds of asbestos have the same level of toxicity and you can be around asbestos that isn’t disturbed without health concerns, but many homeowners don’t want to take that risk, so they choose to have their popcorn ceilings safely replaced.

If your home was built prior to the 1978 Clean Air Act, which prohibited the use of asbestos in building materials, it would be wise to replace the ceiling with help from professionals who can keep you and your family safe from health hazards.

The most common reason modern homeowners remove their popcorn ceiling is for aesthetic purposes: they’re just not in fashion anymore! A popcorn ceiling dates a home very quickly, and many homeowners choose to have popcorn ceiling removal to give their home a more sleek, professional finish.

Popcorn ceilings are notoriously difficult to repair without the repair being obvious. If your ceiling sustains water damage, for instance, it is nearly impossible to match the repair with the rest of the ceiling, making the patch glaringly obvious. This is unsightly on its own, but can also make selling the house more difficult, as it draws attention to previous water damage.

Popcorn ceilings create harsh shadows and disrupt the flow of light to a room, making a room appear darker and smaller than it actually is. Plus, popcorn ceilings tend to fade with time, further emphasizing that darkening effect. A room with a smooth ceiling lets in more light and, as a result, feels bigger and more inviting.

Popcorn ceilings are notoriously difficult to clean. In fact, they are havens for dust collection, while smooth ceilings are far easier to dust and wipe down. Many clients report being able to breathe more easily in their homes after having popcorn ceilings replaced, largely thanks to their rooms being more dust free.

For homeowners with asthma, small children, or frequent colds, having a popcorn ceiling replaced is a great option. Additionally, the popcorn texture can start falling off as time passes, leaving flecks from your ceiling on your furnishings and floor - more mess!

Removing popcorn ceilings increases the resale value of your home! Whether you are looking to move soon or want to invest in your future, popcorn ceiling removal is an excellent way to help your home sell faster.

How Are Popcorn Ceilings Removed?

If a popcorn ceiling has not been painted, the process is fairly straightforward. First, the ceiling is saturated with water, which helps the popcorn texture be easy to scrape off. If the ceiling has been painted, then the paint has to be stripped first or the water won’t be able to help separate the popcorn texture from the ceiling itself.

We use a special paint stripper designed for popcorn ceilings. This stripper is brushed or rolled on to the surface of the ceiling and is designed not to drip away. After it has soaked in, we are then able to scrape away the texture. It is important that the ceiling be kept consistently wet to make the removal safe and healthy for everyone in the house.

Although this process can be done independently, the long hours spent on a ladder combined with hunting down the right tools and supplies leads many homeowners to hire experts. Hiring the experts of Painter1 in Austin not only saves you several trips to the hardware store, but many hours of work and frustration. We guarantee a professional finish and top-notch customer service every step of the way.


Benefits Of Hiring Painter1 in Austin

Replacing a popcorn ceiling isn’t a particularly difficult task, but it is extremely time consuming and messy. By hiring the experts at Painter1 in Austin, you can save yourself hours of frustration and, instead, sit back and leave the climbing and cleanup to us. We take care of covering and protecting your belongings and ensure a neat finish the first time. You’ll be amazed at what a difference popcorn ceiling removal will make for your house.

Adriana and the Painter1 team did a great job painting my house! Adriana made some design suggestions that I hadn't considered and it looks great. I highly recommend them!

Painter 1 of Greater North Austin did a really professional job of painting the exterior of my house and workshop. They were very careful and paid attention to detail. I would definitely use them again and would enthusiastically recommend them to my family and friends.

Excellent, excellent work. The ceilings are super white and painted brilliantly. Clean lines, trim and doors look better than brand new. We are overly satisfied with the work Painter1 performed. Everyone was respectful, clean, very careful, and actually fun to watch. I was a little amazed at the head painters skills actually. I have never seen such straight and clean lines between the ceiling and walls. Time is taken to make sure everything is perfect and they were so clean that I have not found one drop of paint anywhere. Pricing was good, not the lowest bid nor the highest bid, but for the money, you will receive over and above in customer service, painting skill and work performed. I highly recommend Painter1 for all painting needs.

I had several quotes for the exterior of my house, but really liked Leonard and his price. Once I finally decided what exterior colors I wanted, I called Leonard right away! He was fast and provided fantastic service. His crew were courteous and did a great job! I highly recommend them. I am getting compliments from my neighbors! Thank you Leonard!

We’ve used Painter1 twice in the last year and both times they were on time, clean and neat, fast(!) and the cost was reasonable. After the jobs were completed, Leonard came out to make sure we were satisfied and to quality check everything. We will definitely used Painter1 for any future painting needs.

I have hired Leo and their team for my business painting at the Lakeline mall. I cant explain how amazing job they did on such a short notice and also worked with me on mall timings and my business timings.Leo planned it in a way that i don't have to close my business but completed the job on time with out any fail. As its a 10K sqft job and as every job has some hiccups, but Leo was very communicative all through the process and took care of me and my business needs as a priority and took care of the entire painting with out any compromise, super happy with his services. I Strongly recommend Leo and his team for any painting services, going forward he is my go to person.

The entire experience was wonderful! Painter1 is professional, talented, and absolutely amazing. They painted the entire interior of our home and did an incredible job. The work was perfectly done and the crew was fantastic. They are neat, work quickly and thoroughly, and were more than happy to accommodate anything that we requested. I can not recommend them highly enough. We are so happy with the work they did that we are planning on calling them back in the spring to discuss painting the exterior of the house. If you need a painter, don't hesitate to contact Painter1 of Greater North Austin! I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

Leonard's crew from Painter 1 did a great job painting the interior of my home. They were professional and respectful of my home and my time. Their attention to detail impressed me. They cleaned up after themselves and worked great as a team. Leonard was also very easy to deal with. If i need painting servies again, I will definitly call them. I also had another estimate and Leonard's estimate was considerably lower, but his quality exceeded my expectations.

My husband and I recently bought our first home 4 months ago and fell in love with it. However, the home was previously owned and in need of a paint job. There were stains on the walls from the previous owners and we wanted to replace the gray walls with a bright white wall color. Since we have 20 foot high ceilings we knew we needed professional painters. We were lucky to find Adriana and Mike from Painter1 of Lago Vista because not only are they competitively priced but they’re professional and have great customer service. Their team painted the interior walls of our new home in the Benjamin moore Chantilly Lace White paint color as well as the garage walls (in Sherwin Williams colonnade gray) and ceiling and did an amazing job. Adriana always responded quickly to our messages and went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the job. We will definitely use them again in the future and highly recommend them!

They were efficient and careful, especially with making sure everything was covered. We have 22 foot ceilings that Painter1 painted. They allowed us to give approval before finishing the job. We even asked for them to come back and clean up some windows that got a bit of paint on them and they did!
