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.

Leo and his team were fantastic. Very professional and did a great job.

I needed a bedroom & bathroom painted, but I was also considering the stairwell due to the high amount of scuff marks from moving. I wasn't sure about the stairwell because it would have to match the existing paint where it met the living room wall. Leo helped advise what to do and exactly where to paint to. Unfortunately I did not have the original paint, so Leo said they would take a small chip and go mix it to match on the day of the job. The gentlemen that showed up to paint were very efficient and professional. They did a thorough job of prepping the area so the carpet was completely covered and not a drop of paint got on it. They worked quickly and did a great job. The paint they had mixed matched the existing paint on the adjacent walls perfectly! My expectations were more than exceeded. I will use Painter1 for the rest of my place when the time comes.

I will absolutely use Painter1 for all of my painting needs in my new home. They did a wonderful job on my kitchen cabinets, which are tricky. The owner himself checked out all the work himself and made sure the job was done right! The crew was professional and thorough. I can’t wait to have more walls painted.

I am very pleased with the customer service of this company. Adriana and Mike are both nice and great to have business with. They are very involved in the project and they always make sure that every request is met. They had our Exterior House painted and they did a very great job. They are very thorough from start to finish. At first, I was hesitant about the color combination I chose but the end result is top notch and I definitely love it. For your painting needs, I highly recommend them coz they'll go above and beyond to achieve the results you want. They surely did surpass my expectations so thank you Painter1 of Austin Metro/Lago Vista and your whole team!

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.
