The Process

What is the process of popcorn ceiling removal?

The popcorn ceiling removal process explained.

The process of Popcorn Ceiling Removal is messy! Which is why we will politely suggest that the home be vacated during the progression of work. Fortunately, the removal and refinishing typically takes just one day! And two days with painting. We have explained the process below so you can know what to expect. If you have any questions check out of FAQ page and please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Step 1. Preparation.

The preparation phase is a very important phase. In this phase we will mask off the floors, walls and any furnishings in the home. Light fixtures, if not removed, will be masked off as well. We will take the time to make sure everything is properly protected, especially when the home is furnished. Any special requests, please let us know!

Step 2. Popcorn Ceiling Removal.

In the popcorn ceiling removal phase, we will first wet down the ceilings so when we go to scrape them, the popcorn will easily be removed. This prevents unnecessary damage to your drywall. For ceilings that are painted, the ceilings may need to be wet down numerous times so that the water can penetrate through. We do this by wetting the popcorn, waiting a few minutes for the water to soak in, scraping, and repeating the process until the popcorn will easily be removed.

Step 3. Repairs.

In the repair phase, we will prep the ceilings for texture by repairing minor imperfections such as those due to the removal (knicks and scrapes), repair peeling tape, etc… In this phase we also skim all joints, nails and/or screws.


Step 4. Finishing.

In this phase, your ceilings will be textured or a smooth finish will be applied. You will have the choice of what drywall finish you will want applied to your ceiling. (Smooth, fine and custom finishes are an extra charge).


Step 5. Prime.

In the priming phase, we will prime the ceiling using industrial strength primer and sealer in one.


Step 6. Paint.

In the painting phase, we will apply your choice of paint to the ceilings. Typically, after prime coat only one coat of paint is needed.


Step 7. Cleanup.

In this phase, we will carefully remove all masking, keeping the popcorn debris and loose joint compound contained. After removing from the premises, we will dispose of properly.

Step 8. Completion.

If available, we will meet with you to walk you through your home and make sure you are satisfied with the results of our popcorn ceiling removal services. Otherwise, we will give you a call and/or email updating you of our completion.
