Stipple Ceiling Removal Cost

On average, Stipple 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, whether it has been previously painted and whether it tests positive for asbestos. Previously painted surfaces with thicker layers will be harder to get rid of, while unpainted finishes will be more brittle and easier to scrape off. The price will be measured by the time and materials required for the job, which we can determine through an in-home consultation. Schedule your free estimate online to arrange an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do we need to test for asbestos before removing stipple?
A:Yes, if your home was constructed before 1990, it is essential to conduct an asbestos test for safety. Homes built after 1990 are typically free from asbestos concerns in stipple textures.

Q:Can stipple be removed if it has been painted over?
A:Absolutely. However, it is important to note that removing painted stipple requires additional time and resources compared to unpainted surfaces.

Q:What is the expected duration for stipple removal services?
A:The process typically spans 3 to 5 days, which includes the complete removal of stipple, necessary ceiling repairs, thorough cleanup, and the application of primer and paint.

Q:Is there a need for professional cleaning services after stipple removal?
A: While our team takes extensive measures to protect your home and minimize dust, we usually recommend a professional cleaning post-service to ensure your space is thoroughly clean. We are happy to coordinate this and build it into our scope.

Q:Is it advised to repaint the walls after stipple removal?
A:While not mandatory, we strongly recommend repainting the walls. The removal and refinishing processes can affect the wall-to-ceiling transition, potentially leading to uneven edges or imperfections. Repainting ensures a seamless and polished finish throughout your room.
