Have An Older Home With Ugly Walls And Ceilings?
Older homes built before 1970 present a unique set of problems. Besides having an attic full of insulation that most likely contains asbestos, the walls and ceilings themselves, which also contain asbestos can lose their original finish over the years due to settling, roof leaks, etc. and show every dent, repair, remodeling project, room addition and paint job from past owners.
What Exactly Is An Interior Wall And Ceiling Restoration?
An interior restoration is a less expensive alternative to rebuilding the walls and ceilings in an older home from scratch. If your ceiling has a texture that looks dated and has 40 years of moved light fixtures, repairs and re-paints on it we can make it look great again. We do this using several methods with the most common being scraping and skimming the entire ceiling. Because several paint jobs will make the texture impossible to remove we'll scrape the texture to standardize the thickness of the texture then skim the ceiling using standard plastering techniques to bring the ceiling back up to a smooth paintable finish. The same method is also used on older painted popcorn ceilings. This method will not disturb or expose the homes interior to asbestos dust.
Walls are restored in a similar way. We'll repair any damage or empty electrical boxes following all building and fire safety codes then apply a minimum of two coats of joint compound to all patches, exposed joints, corner moldings, screws, nail holes, etc. bringing the walls up to a smooth paintable Level 4 smooth finish that will make the home look as good as new.
Even the materials used in the homes construction are different from what's available at your local big-box building supply store. While most homes built after 1960 used drywall for the walls and ceilings the majority of homes built before then used cement plaster boards with interior plaster applied or basic lath and plaster in the original construction.
Why We Should Paint Your Walls and Ceilings
We offer the finest quality interior painting at a price that's competitive and we treat every job the same. After prepping the walls and ceilings to be painted by caulking, sanding and patching we'll apply a high quality primer-sealer coat before the first coat of any finish color.
Plaster Wall And Ceiling Restorations
This 1920's plaster home off Main Street in Greenville had old looking walls and ceilings that showed every repair, stress crack and everything else that comes with an old plaster house. After repairing the numerious cracks, humps and mising areas in existing plaster we applied a paint-ready Level 4 smooth finish throughout the home.
Drywall Wall And Ceiling Restorations
This house in downtown Easley was built in 1951. The ceiling had 2 different finishes including popcorn that had been painted many times by previous owners.
