About Popcorn Ceiling Removal Services

Popcorn ceiling was an incredibly popular choice for home decoration for many years, offering homeowners a solution that hides imperfections without sacrificing quality acoustics. Nowadays a popcorn ceiling can make a room look dated and old-fashioned, and removing it has become a priority for many looking to update their homes. This is particularly the case for homeowners trying to sell their homes in an increasingly competitive market, as well as those who have just purchased a fixer-upper and are looking to make it their own.

In addition to the finish, popcorn ceiling can be difficult to clean and maintain. The texture easily accumulates dust and cobwebs, which is especially problematic in homes with high ceilings that are difficult to reach. This is why many homeowners opt for popcorn ceiling removal services in order to achieve a cleaner, more modern finish for their home ceilings. CertaPro Painters® offers this service with all of the professionalism and attention to detail our customers have come to expect.

How much does popcorn ceiling removal cost?

On average, popcorn ceiling removal can be costly, but the actual price will depend on a variety of factors. These include the size and height of the ceiling, the layout of the room, and the popcorn effect itself. More intricate patterns with thicker layers will be harder to get rid of, while certain finishes will be more brittle and easier to break away than others. The price will be measured by the time and materials required for the job, which we can determine through an in-home consultation.

Why Use A Professional Company?

This is a tricky project that can go wrong very quickly in inexperienced hands. There are various benefits to relying on popcorn ceiling removal companies instead of tackling the work yourself. The delicate nature of the project often results in novice mistakes that are difficult and costly to fix. A few common mistakes include creating small holes and marks on the ceiling or causing water damage to any electrical boxes or outlets that aren’t properly protected. It is also a particularly messy job that can be a cleanup nightmare if the room hasn’t been prepared correctly.

Furthermore, as with any ceiling work, the removal can be tedious and exhausting, especially if you have a lot of it to go through. Professional popcorn ceiling removal teams have years of experience in this process, and there is no putting a price on this level of expertise.

Why Hire CertaPro Painters® To Remove My Popcorn Ceiling?

Popcorn ceiling removal is an involved and messy process, requiring special tools for scraping, sanding, and vacuuming the dust that accumulates on the ground. It can be time-consuming, depending on the height and square footage of the ceiling, as well as on how intricate the popcorn pattern is. If popcorn ceiling removal services are required in a furnished room, all the furnishings will have to be removed or protected, making the process even more labor intensive.
