What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

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

We had our unfinished basement ceiling painted black to give it an industrial look! We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! There are some areas that are under sprayed but overall we are pleased! They definitely achieved the look we were going for! They were on time, professional and spent a great deal of time tapping off everything that wasn’t being painted! We would use them again!

Estimate was fair pricing, job completed in time frame promised ,painters were very neat and respectful of our home, and quality of work was excellent. They also provided a color consultant who was very helpful with our project. We were pleased with the interior painting as well as the kitchen cabinets (looked great and I was able to get the updated look I wanted without huge expense of replacing cabinets). Two other family members have scheduled work based on our experience.

The crew did a great job painting the outside of our house. They were very nice and they seem to enjoy their jobs. We had a piece of siding that was missing from the peak and they measured the hole and painted the wood and put it up for us. Thank you for going above and beyond!

They were able to rearrange their schedule to fit me using since the people that were replacing my gutters changed the date! Can't say enough how well they worked with me! They cleaned up after themselves and even showed me some things that need fixed that I wouldn't have seen on my own. Very polite! Absolutely recommend!

First of all the service was SUPER professional. Gene the owner and his wife were Detailed made it super clear exactly what to expect and Gene came by every single day to check progress and see if we had questions. Noel the painter did a great job as well. This totally changed our kitchen and looks like they're original white cabinets. Expensive but worth it. You get what you pay for. Pictures speak for themselves.

This was the second time that we used Painter 1. The first time, they painted our home's exterior and a few interior rooms. They did a great job, so when we decided to paint our kitchen cabinets, they were our first call. Once again, they did a great job. The whole process went exactly as we discussed. There was consistent, clear communication throughout the process, with no surprises. I would highly recommend Painter 1 to anyone needing painting services.

We had them paint the exterior on our house, shed, and deck. The whole process from beginning to end was so smooth. Every person I met with was highly professional and the painters treated the job like they were painting their own house. Even in the middle of a paint shortage, they were still able to deliver a great product.

Working with Painter1 was of utmost joy. From estimate (Melissa), to painting crew, to final inspection Mr. Harris, & finally getting direction of how to leave (Sheila), each step met ALL of my expectations & I’m not an easy sell. Wishing Painter1 all the success, there should be a 10 Star rating, cause they are a perfect 10.

We just had our exterior painted with Painter1. They exceeded our expectations and did a fabulous job! Multiple neighbors have stopped by to tell us how much they like the new paint job. The crew was so friendly and very professional. They arrived early each morning and finished the job in just three days. They were extremely detail-oriented and did an amazing job on all of the intricate trim work we have on our historic home. On top of all of this, they were a great value and stayed within our initial quote. We truly couldn’t be happier and will be recommending them to many friends and family in the future.
