Professional Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Acoustic ceilings (or, more commonly, "popcorn" ceilings) were a popular trend in the past, common in homes built from the 1950s to the 1980s and valued for their ability to absorb sound and mitigate echoes. Today, popcorn ceilings are decidedly outdated and undesirable. Modern smooth ceilings are considered more stylish in current design. Unfortunately, if you own an older home it's likely that it is full of the infamous stucco. If you've decided to repaint a room with popcorn ceilings, our skilled interior painters offer professional popcorn ceiling removal and painting services to help you update your home's interior design.

Popcorn ceiling removal is a big job, so why should you go through so much work to get rid of them? Aside from giving your home a more modern and polished appearance, it's a remodel that has many benefits. The textured surface can suffer from discoloration and water damage over time, making removal a smarter choice than repeatedly painting over the stucco. Removal is also an appealing way to add value and appeal to your home if you're looking to sell in the near future.

Testimonials about our Painter1 Franchisees
Painter1 of Greater SLC did such a fantastic job painting the interior of our home, from walls, ceiling, trimmings, and stair banister. Uriel and his crew are very honest, hard working, clean, and extremely thorough. We are so pleased with the end result and we will definitely hire them again for our painting needs. Thank you, Painter 1!

I have hired this company for painting 3 times now. Uriel is a good guy, professional, and I think the pricing he calculates for his bids is fair. I have always been pleased with the work his crews have done. The painters-crews are completely trustworthy, I've just left a key when I'm not around. Uriel wants to be sure customers are 100% satisfied, and if there's even a slight problem he'll be sure it is corrected. I've been pleased with this company's work and will hire them again.

They work CLEAN. I have some expensive and heavy items around the house and they were super careful around them. They finished the job on time and were definitely worth what I paid. I will happily use their services again. Did I mention they work CLEAN?!

Additionally, your popcorn ceilings may be hiding a harmful secret inside them: asbestos. Before it was banned in 1977, asbestos was a legal and common part of making popcorn ceilings. While research has since shown that it has serious medical consequences when inhaled–such as lung cancer–and modern homes are now prohibited from using it in insulation, homes built before the 1980's have a high chance of containing asbestos in the ceiling. If asbestos and lead is found in your ceilings before removal is started, the job must absolutely be done by professionals experienced in dealing with asbestos.

Our team is committed to performing a safe and high-quality job on your popcorn ceiling removal, getting it done right the first time to give you the interior design that you want. If you have any questions about popcorn ceiling removal, contact Painter1 today for a free in-home estimate.
