Popcorn Ceiling Removal from Patches In a Day

Few things date a house like a popcorn ceiling.

But on the other hand, popcorn ceilings are tough to repair today, and even tougher to clean and collect dust. When you are ready to rid your home of that popcorn ceiling, do not take chances. Talk to our removal specialists at Patches In a Day! Our company can help improve your home’s construction and stability with popcorn ceiling removal and replacement that lasts.

What Is a Popcorn Ceiling?

Popcorn ceilings, also known as acoustic and cottage cheese ceilings, are roughly textured with stucco or Styrofoam materials. These materials give them the bumpy look of popcorn. This type of ceiling was popular in home construction in the 20th century because it was a less expensive alternative to properly painting. Popcorn ceilings hid imperfections such as holes or cracks and offered a cost-efficient solution for painters and DIY enthusiasts. They simply stippled with a sponge or sprayed the unique mix with a hopper gun, and created a ceiling for their bedroom, basement, or hallway.

The Drawbacks of a Popcorn Ceiling

The problem with popcorn ceilings is the amount of work required to clean and maintain them. Holes and cracks develop over time. Dirt, spider webs, and dust stick to the craggy surface, and any smoke can quickly stain a popcorn ceiling. When trying to clean a popcorn surface, you can break off bits of it, creating an unappealing uneven aesthetic that worsens over time.

By using our proven multi-step process:

  • Room Preparation: Our professionals do not merely show up and start scraping away materials. We prepare the entire space, and everything in it, with protective drop cloths, plastic covers, and painter’s tape. We remove any light switch covers and furniture and disconnect any appliances like ceiling fans. Whether we are working in new construction or existing home areas, our company takes great care to ensure everything is safe and protected before any work begins.
  • Ceiling Removal: Our techs spray your ceiling with a unique water-based solution to easily remove the unpainted stucco. We then scrape until the entire popcorn ceiling surface is removed. If the stucco is painted, we go through additional steps to prep space after the removal to preserve the substrate.
  • Flat Finish Work: After removal, our popcorn ceiling removal technicians fill the substrate to give it a new flat finish.
  • Clean-Up: Finally, we clean and vacuum everything for you. We leave your room in the best condition possible with comprehensive restorative services that set us apart.
