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.

If you are looking for a professional painting company that will provide you with phenomenal work, communication, attention to detail and personalization, look no further than Lisa and her company Painter1. From start to finish Lisa and her team did an impeccable exterior paint job of our home. From the moment we contacted Lisa, she was extremely friendly and professional. She immediately came out to our home and discussed the project in detail. She provided us with great ideas on how we could revitalize the look. Afterwards, she immediately placed us on her calendar and was prompt to begin the job. The team was extremely friendly, precise, meticulous and organized. The transformation has received a lot of positive feedback. Many others in our community have used Painter1, as well, for exterior and interior projects and all have been extremely satisfied. We cannot thank Painter1 enough for this great experience!

Great experience from the moment I spoke with Lisa at Painter 1. She was able to come and provide a fair and honest quote, which beat two other quotes. She was able to work around my schedule as I had multiple other projects going on at the same time. When the crew arrived, they cleaned and prepared the house without cutting any corners. The process was quick, clean and professional with high quality workmanship. When they finished, Lisa came for a final walk-through and inspected the work with us. We love the way our house looks now thanks to Painter 1. I highly recommend this company to anyone who needs home paint work!

Lisa at Painter1 and her crew were very Professional. I contacted Lisa in March 2021 based on another review and she did not disappoint. At that time, we decided to purchase a new front door and wanted it painted with the rest of the house. Well…. 2021 was 2021 and the door wound up being back ordered until December. Lisa stayed in constant contact and was very courteous and patient. Her follow up was amazing. The crew that came to paint the exterior of our house and doors was on time, professional and courteous. I would DEFINITELY recommend Painter1 for any painting projects.

Best experience ever. Painter 1 completed my exterior paint job flawlessly. Lisa supervised every aspect of the contract; communicated job start and finish, helped with HOA approval, monitored the job daily and provided us with touch up paint for the future. Her crew was amazing and painted the inside edges of front door without jumping through hoops. Professional and pleasant, like working with family. Walls, doors, frames, gutters, all painted perfectly. Total clean up. Easily the best contract service ever.

Dante did a wonderful job on my kitchen cabinets. I am very happy with the results! They look better than I thought they could - being painted. They got it done in 3 days, which I thought was super fast. They'd initally told me it would be a week, so faster than expected. Very pleased. Would hire them again, as long as Dante is their painter. :)
