What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

Reminiscent of eras past, popcorn ceilings aren’t for everyone. Find popcorn ceiling removal services at Painter1 of Delaware! 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 of Delaware 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 of Delaware

Replacing a popcorn ceiling isn’t a particularly difficult task, but it is extremely time consuming and messy. By hiring the experts at Painter1 of Delaware, 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.

Lisa and her team did a fantastic job. It was such a pleasure working with them from start to finish. Lisa was always checking in and quick to respond, a service that is very rare and very much appreciated. The team was on time, professional, courteous, cleaned up after themselves and did a great job. If you are looking for a painting company, this is definitely the one to use!

They are just good people, who know how to serve their customers! Lisa and staff did an excellent job on our new home. We were recommended to Painter1 and Lisa by the General Manager at the Sherwin Williams store in Boca. The Manager said Lisa was the very best and we should call. Lisa was prompt in taking the call, effeciently quoted a competitive price, came within two weeks and the crew made our home beautiful in three days. Clean workers, quick and thorough. They patched and suggested colors, accent walls and shared their years of experience with us. Top notch from beginning to end! Good job!

Lisa is amazing and saw the job all the way through. The painters got to my house early, on time, and finished the job quickly. Since I just had my windows replaced in the house I also needed some interior painting which she took care of as well. I could not recommend this company more. Their prices were competitive and reasonable as well.

I cannot think of another company deserving of a 5-star review more than Painter1 of Boca Raton. I’m absolutely blown away by the quality of work done and the kindness and respect shown to me and my home. The gentlemen who painted my house were diligent and skilled, incredibly nice, and aimed to please. They cleaned up every day and not a spec of paint was visible on my new carpet. I mean, I cannot express enough, how really happy I am. You guys have earned a customer for life! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will be letting everyone in my community know of my experience via our private community Facebook page where we share referrals because I would recommend Lisa and her team without hesitation!

Words can not adequately express just how much I appreciate Painter 1. From my first contact with Dallin, I experienced his excellent communication skills and follow~ through with our appointments and emails. He was extremely timely in his estimate and very helpful in answering all of my questions. I appreciated the advice that he gave me, too. Ariana followed up with excellent support working up to the actual paint date and follow up at the completion of the job. She also provided lots of answers to questions and good solid advice. But, maybe most of all, a huge thank you goes to my painter, Shaun. He did an outstanding job painting the exterior of my home. The biggest compliment that I can give is that he treated my home as if it was his home. He was so very conscientious and careful in the quality and detail of his work. He also maintained a very neat and clean work environment. He was helpful and friendly in his interactions each day. I was so impressed by his communication skills in letting me know his work schedule and time frame for the job. I can not thank Shaun enough for making my home so beautiful! I appreciate him very much! Thank you, Painter 1, for being such an outstanding company and having such exemplary employees on your staff!

We debated on painting the house ourselves, but we are glad we didn't. Painter1 was professional and clean during the entire interior project. They painted walls, accent walls, and our cabinets. Everything was done at a high quality and on time. Thank you!

We needed some wallpaper removed and there was no way I was going to try to tackle that. I'm glad I didn't. It was a disaster to come off but the crew handled it great. They fixed all the drywall damage after and the paint job looks awesome. Would highly recommend!

I tried to paint my rooms by myself. I realized after 3 days and finishing one room I needed some help. Painter1 was very accommodating to my family and I. They picked up where I left off and finished the rest of the house in 3 days! So glad I called them!

Painter1 was awesome. My house looks great. They were courteous, friendly, accommodating, put everything back where it was, cleaned up after themselves daily …. Their price was better than all other estimates. They did a final inspection with me, on site supervisor and owner Lisa.

We bought a house that still had builders beige, I didn't even know that existed still?!?! Painter1 is professional, and are quality painters! Thank you Dallin and Keslee for going the extra mile and making the process a breeze. So glad we don't have to live with those old colors!

Lisa and her team did an excellent job on painting the exterior of our home. Her team was very polite and professional. I would definitely use her again and would highly recommend Painter1 to others. Good customer service is hard to find these days and I appreciate Lisa going the extra step to ensure our phone calls/emails were responded to in a timely manner and more importantly following up after her team was finished to make sure we were happy with the job.
