Why should I remove my popcorn ceilings?

  1. Smooth ceilings instantly add value to your property
  2. Smooth ceilings add natural light to your living space
  3. Smooth ceilings do not trap allergens and dust, but textured ceilings do
  4. Smooth ceilings have greater visual appeal than textured ceiling
  5. Smooth ceilings can be cleaned if needed, not the case with textured ceilings
  6. In case of a leak or damage, a smooth ceiling can be repaired and matched perfectly, but you can never match a textured ceiling 100%
  7. Textured ceilings prior to 1980 often contained asbestos
  8. Textured ceilings are far more likely to harbour cob webs (spider webs)
  9. Textured ceilings are associated with aggravating asthma symptoms
  10. We don’t live in the 1970’s anymore

Removing popcorn ceiling texture is (usually) a messy and time-consuming job. However, we here at RemoveCeilingTexture.com have over 20 years of experience handling popcorn ceilings and we know how to make the process quick, efficient, relatively clean and headache free.

Plus we also offer an exclusive process which does not require scraping of the ceiling texture for those occasions where the ceiling texture has been painted or it contains asbestos and it should not be scraped.

 

What are my options?

1 ) Conventional Removal Method:

When performing thee conventional texture removal method, we will:

a ) Cover all areas/furniture items that have to be protected

b ) Scrape and remove the texture from your ceilings

c ) Skim coat the entire ceiling with non-toxic drywall compound

d ) Finish the ceiling with a “Level 5” finish coat

e ) Sand out the entire ceiling

f ) Remove the protective coverings and vaccum the place out (rough cleanup)

The above method results in a smooth, paint ready ceiling. Don’t worry if the underlying surface below your current textured ceiling is not smooth. We always even out the imperfections when skim coating the ceiling.

 

No scraping, no headache popcorn ceiling texture removal

2 ) Exclusive, No-Scraping Method:

When performing our Exclusive texture removal method, we will:

a ) Cover all areas/furniture items that have to be protected

b ) Cover the entire ceiling including the texture with bonding agent

c ) Skim coat the entire ceiling with an exclusive cementitious coating

d ) Skim coat the entire ceiling again with non-toxic drywall compound

e ) Finish the ceiling with a “Level 5” finish coat

f ) Sand out the entire ceiling

g ) Remove the protective coverings and vacuum (rough cleanup)

Our exclusive method involves no scraping, so it will not disturb the existing ceiling texture. It is much cleaner that the conventional texture removal method, and it produces a far more durable product than a standard drywall ceiling.
Do you have Asbestos in your ceiling texture? Our exclusive method is especially effective if you have asbestos in your ceiling texture because it doesn’t disturb the asbestos. Instead it burries the existing ceiling texture in a bonding agent followed by a cementitious coating. This will seal in the asbestos and the ceiling texture for the rest of your home’s life, therefore eliminating the threat of air-borne asbestos from ceiling texture.

We serve all of Metro Vancouver communities including Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Richmond, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Delta, Langley, White Rock.

 

Painting the smooth ceilings

Many of our clients have asked if we paint the ceilings once the popcorn texture is removed and the ceiling is smooth. The answer is, it’s up to the homeowner. Some homeowners prefer that we do the painting of the ceiling once it is smooth. Others have their own painter do the painting once we are finished with the ceilings. Either way, the ceiling needs to be painted once the popcorn texture is removed and the ceiling is re-finished by us.
