In the 1960s and 1970s, popcorn ceilings were trendy. The texture was easy to apply to plaster ceilings and drywall. It didn’t need to be painted afterward. The surface can trap dust and cobwebs, making it difficult to determine how to remove the popcorn ceiling. It can be difficult to match if you have holes or cracks that need to be repaired. It can be a tedious task to remove popcorn ceiling texture from ceilings. However, it is worth the effort if the ceiling’s substrate is in good condition.
We understand that popcorn ceiling removal can be labor-intensive and should only be done by us. Sometimes, asbestos may be present in ceilings. It’s best to consult us before the project starts.
Is there a better way to remove popcorn ceilings?
Which one is the best? It depends on various factors, including the condition of the substrate (ceiling). We explain everything homeowners need to know about removing their popcorn ceiling. We have broken down the three ways to remove popcorn ceilings with his assistance.
How to Scrape a Popcorn Ceiling
To remove popcorn ceilings, we use a 4-inch utility or drywall knife to cut away the texture and create smooth surfaces. To smooth out imperfections, we will need to use a thin layer joint compound on the popcorn ceiling. After that, sand it until it is smooth for repainting.
Why do it?
This is the most popular method for removing popcorn ceilings. Although messy and slow, scraping your ceiling can be done in one person. Paint and popcorn finished before 1979 often contained asbestos or lead. These substances could prove dangerous if they are sent into the air. We have a home test to check for lead paint if you live in an older house and speak with an expert about asbestos testing.
Ceilings that aren’t at risk of asbestos or lead paint but have been painted may not be possible to remove. The porous popcorn material will soak it up, making it nearly impossible to clean them. We might consider drywalling them.
Before we start scraping, we do not spray the ceiling with water.
Many people spray their ceilings with water and then scrape them to loosen them. But we do not recommend this. It will not only make the ceiling messy, but it can also absorb into the ceiling, making it heavier. Then it may crack. Although it is more laborious, it’s better to clean it up dry.
Drywall: How to Cover Up
Ceiling-grade Gypsum Board, significantly lighter than standard wallboard, can be applied over popcorn ceilings. For a seamless job, we will screw it securely into the framing.
Why do it?
This is a better alternative to scraping if you have asbestos or lead paint. We encapsulate the hazardous substance rather than send it out. We will get the best finish if you use mud and tape correctly. We will also be able complete the job quickly. If the ceiling is damaged or you need to make reroutes of electrical or HVAC, it is possible to cut large holes in the substrate. They will be covered soon enough.
