Step-by-Step Popcorn Ceiling Removal Process

  1. Initial Consultation and Quote: We assess the ceiling condition and provide a detailed quote, explaining the process and answering any questions.

  2. Preparation: We protect your floors, walls, and furniture with plastic sheeting and drop cloths. Ventilation and safety measures are set up to control dust.

  3. Testing for Asbestos: If your home was built before 1980, we test the popcorn ceiling for asbestos to ensure safety. If asbestos is found, we follow strict abatement procedures.

  6. Sanding and Smoothing: We sand the ceiling to ensure a smooth finish, ready for priming and painting.

  7. Repair and Patching: Any imperfections or damage uncovered during removal are repaired and patched.

  8. Priming the Ceiling: We apply a high-quality primer to prepare the surface for painting.

  9. Painting the Ceiling: We paint the ceiling with your chosen color, ensuring an even, professional finish.

  10. Final Inspection and Cleanup: We conduct a final inspection to ensure the job meets our high standards. We clean up thoroughly, leaving your space spotless.
