What Are Popcorn Ceilings?

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

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

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 crew did an outstanding job painting our home. From the first phone call made to Lisa down to the final proposal sent upon the completion of the job. She was prompt, responsive, kind and professional. The paperwork delivered by email was spot on. The entire process was flawless. They did the work as stated and in a timely manner. Lisa followed all of my special request to the T. Thank you again Lisa and the crew for all your hard work. My Mom and I are so pleased with the finished project. The neighbors all admired and loved your work also! A big thanks to David our neighbor who gave us your card. thank you again, Karyn Doran and JoAnne Day (Mom)

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. A big thank you to Lisa and the team at Painter1!

The entire staff and crew were awesome. Dallin came out and gave us a quote quickly and the crew was able to start a couple weeks later. The job went very smooth and I love my new paint colors! Thank you!

I came across Painter 1 while driving on the road and saw their van. After looking them up on Google and finding fantastic reviews I went with them. I did not shop around - I wanted the job done and after what sounded like a fair price - they were booked. Everything that you will read about Painter 1 and Lisa is accurate. She is terrific. She came to my home with color suggestions which were superb and started the job fairly quickly - after first giving me a reference for the removal of the popcorn ceiling. My older home 40+ looks as close to new again as possible. Christin was the manager on the job overlooking the progress daily and was in touch with me constantly about suggestions and other needs that arose as I am not in the apartment just yet. His communication was outstanding along with his suggestions. In addition, Lisa stands by her work 100%. As promised I was given a walk through and any minor concerns I had were addressed. Look no further - for great customer service, excellent work and a stand-up company - Painter 1 is all that. Thank you all for a real easy working relationship. You deserve the business!

Our church used Painter1 of Boise to restore a challenging tall and badly deteriorated exterior wall. The result was something we can all be very proud of! From the initial contact phone call to the estimate to the execution and clean-up, Sound Painting professionals were courteous, knowledgeable and skillful.

They reached out and we’re very communicative about starting early and we were able to accommodate them. It was a surprise, but a welcome one. We could tell they enjoyed working with each other. I highly recommend them.

My favorite thing about painter 1 was the integrity in the quoting and change order process. Dallin, the area manager, measured every wall and broke down the quote accordingly including cost of materials. The quote also included what would be excluded and what additions might cost. If you change something, you are first quoted a proposed amount, and then sign a change order. Aside from this respectability and transparency, I also felt I received a great quality outcome for a competitive price.

Lisa, the owner, came out on time and was professional. She scoped out the job, and told me I’d have an estimate by the next morning. She came through with that estimate as promised. The crew that came to prep and paint our house were clean, thorough and had a great attention to detail. The walkthrough with the project manager, Carlos, yielded a few areas to touch up, that the crew did promptly. I would highly recommend Painter1.
