Popcorn ceiling removal is one of the must do items in any remodel or update project. Scraping off yourpopcorn ceilings provides a very visible, and therefore profitable upgrade to your home or flip project.
The task of removing a popcorn ceiling is not complicated but it is very hard work and is best done by a qualified expert.
Preparing The Jobsite
Before work can begin it is necessary to create a walking path to each of the rooms to be worked in. The process of removing popcorn ceilings creates a mess that easily spreads to other areas and outdoors! So to ensure that home remains clean we cover floors in every area of the house that will be passed through.
Preparing the Room
Your entire room will be wrapped in plastic, floor to ceiling, creating a containment vessel for the acoustic-popcorn as it is removed from the ceiling. All Light Fixtures, Wall Sockets, Ceiling Hooks, Smoke Detectors, and Ceiling Vents will need to be removed before the popcorn ceiling work can begin.
Removal of the Popcorn Ceiling begins with applying water to your ceiling. When the water has soaked into the ceiling the process of scraping begins. This is done by hand, and usually with a ladder, scaffold, or lift. When the popcorn is substantially removed you will begin to see the results and beauty of this process. The ceiling can get slightly damaged in the popcorn removal process. Repairing the Sheetrock, Recoating the Joints and Nails and smoothing out uneven areas is the final step in the removal process.
Texture, Prime, and Paint.
With the popcorn gone you will see a noticeable improvement! If you have textured walls it is often appropriate to match the ceiling texture to the wall texture. A Commonly used forms of texture painting is Knockdown.
If you want a smooth ceiling your project will require skimcoating. This is the process of applying a thin layer of compound over the ceiling and then sanding it smooth. With your ceilings textured or skimcoated, prime and paint are the final steps!
