What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

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

If you are lucky enough to get on their schedule, do so. This team is more than a group of painters. They did extensive wall and ceiling repair in our 50 year-old home before painting. The quality of the repair work was stellar, rendering the final painting extraordinary. They repaired and repainted gaffes we did not think could be made to appear seamless. On top of that, you could not find a nicer group of people. We recommend Painter1 of Portsmouth without reservation, and in fact, with great enthusiasm!

Used Paul and the Painter 1 team to paint my home and barn. Super nice folks, very easy to communicate with. The price was more than fair and the paint job looks great. No drips, roller marks, painted windows — got it done quickly and professionally. Definitely recommend them!

I first met with Paul Lanzoni. He is a true professional and was honest in quoting our interior paint project. Scheduling the project was a breeze and they were able to work with our work schedule as well. Prior to starting the job, I met with Bill to go over project specifics. He was exceptional, from start to finish. His knowledge in design helped us select the right materials for our project. He checked-in and followed-up with us each step of the way. Paul, Bill, and their crew truly take pride in their work. I HIGHLY recommend using Painter1 for your next project. It is without a doubt they will be our go-to company for future work. EXCEPTIONAL!

Very pleased with this company. The quote was very reasonable for the work done and the painters did a fantastic job. They worked hard and got my entire foyer and 17 foot high ceiling done in one day. The owner, project manager and painters were all very professional and quick to respond to any questions. I will be using them for any future painting needs.

The job: Remove and repair bathroom popcorn ceiling and paint Although the project that day seemed like a never-ending waiting game for the “mud" to dry as a repair to the ceiling popcorn removal and smoothing process, the bathroom wall paint is smooth and beautiful; the once ugly, peeling popcorn and duct-taped ceiling is painted and looks fantastic! Such a big difference and I love it. Thanks to the team's positive and upbeat attitude, despite the frustration we all felt waiting and watching paint NOT dry, while the next stage for sanding/painting was delayed, I was assured he would do an excellent job. AND he did!
