Freshen and Brighten Your Room with Popcorn Ceiling Removal

You've made a smart decision to update the texture of your ceilings. Because they are dated and hard to maintain, popcorn ceilings may actually lower the value of your home.

Popcorn ceilings were popular in homes built as far back as the late 1930s. They were inexpensive, easily applied, and provided good cover for small imperfections such as cracks and nail holes. In its day, people liked that it gave a warm, cozy feel to a room.

But decades later, numerous drawbacks make popcorn ceiling texture less desirable.

  • Spider webs, dust, and dirt get trapped in the rough texture, making them hard to clean and even repaint.
  • They trap light, making a room appear smaller and darker.
  • Moisture and cleaning loosen the plaster causing it to crack and fall down.
  • They are difficult to repair. Patching is a lengthy, tedious process and still may not match the existing texture once the repair is complete.

Safely get rid of popcorn ceilings before you start projects like living room, home office, or bedroom painting.
