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 Today, popcorn ceilings are decidedly outdated and undesirable.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.

This is our second time using Painter1 for work on our small business location, first interior and this time exterior. We have a challenging location in a 100 year old house with lots of nooks & crannies. They again did an exceptional job and it was a pleasure to work with their crew! The building looks fantastic and Jeff took care of the final walk-through punch items himself ensuring we had the final result everyone was hoping for. We will absolutely be contacting them again when the next business or personal project comes up! Thank you Painter1!

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.
