I don't just remove the popcorn, touch up a little bit and then call it done.
My procedure includes removing and replacing any moldy drywall and insulation, repairing any damage the original popcorn texture covered up and then bringing the entire ceiling up to a smooth modern paintable finish that's just like new.
What makes me different from the others when restoring a popcorn ceiling?
I've performed over 200 ceiling restorations of all sizes in the last 20 years and have developed techniques and methods that take into account many factors that other contractors fail to address. For example, the method for removing popcorn ceiling texture that's been painted is completely different from removing unpainted popcorn ceiling texture. While some contractors may tell you that the only thing they can do is install new drywall over an existing textured ceiling that's been painted I'll always present you with options. I address issues such as how old is the framing of the home, can the ceiling safely support another 700-1,000 pounds of new drywall without any structural issues, will the crown molding need to be replaced, and what about adjusting the fixtures in the ceiling such as lights, fans, vents, etc. Plus I'll always guarantee my work to be of the highest quality.
How long does it take to restore and paint a popcorn ceiling?
The time to restore a popcorn ceiling could take as little as a couple days for a standard sized bathroom to as long as a couple weeks for a larger home with tall ceilings. The main reason for the time needed variations are due to the drying time required for the materials to cure properly.
Can I paint the restored ceiling?
Yes. I always provide an estimate that includes painting. Just remember that I never take short cuts. I'll always caulk where needed, use top quality primers and sealers and prefer to use top quality Sherwin Williams paints for the final finish paint.
Is there a mess from restoring a popcorn ceiling?
A popcorn ceiling restoration is the messiest and dirtiest remodeling project you can do to a home. But I'll work hard to keep your home free from debris. After all, the deconstruction and reconstruction of an entire home's ceiling is a real construction project that can create several hundred pounds of debris and very fine dust.

Is there asbestos in popcorn ceilings?
There very well could be. EPA safety standards suggest that all ceilings that have had popcorn ceiling texture applied before January 1 1980 should be tested for asbestos before starting the removal process. If your house was built or textured after that date then it is considered free of asbestos. I am are not licensed to test for or remove asbestos. Please remember that with 200+ ceiling restorations under our belts I have developed methods that won't disturb the asbestos and turn your home into an EPA hazard full of asbestos dust.
