popcorn ceiling removal
Popcorn ceilings are found in older homes and resemble popcorn or cottage cheese. They were originally installed to help with acoustics, and to cover up imperfections by the people who installed the drywall. Popcorn ceilings tend to accumulate dust and dander, which make them look dirty and dated. Removing the popcorn ceilings from a home is most likely an aesthetic decision, and once they are removed, your ceilings become smooth and clean.

The team at The Drywall Guy takes the utmost care when removing popcorn ceilings from a home. They start by encapsulating the room in plastic, including the flooring to protect the entire home from the messy job of popcorn removal. After the interior of the home has been covered in plastic, the team wets the surface and scrapes off the old popcorn ceiling.
After the popcorn ceiling is removed, they take the additional extra steps of screwing the sheetrock to the ceiling to make sure everything is tight and stable. They then touch up as needed before they begin refinishing the ceiling.
Many other companies skip this crucial step in the popcorn ceiling removal process. The Drywall Guy is always thorough when removing a popcorn ceiling to make sure the final result is perfect. The whole popcorn ceiling removal process is only complete once the finish on the entire ceiling in every room matches, and all of the debris is cleaned up and removed from the home.
