Popcorn texture used to be the trend in the 80's and 90's but now smooth ceilings and knock down textures are the most preferred finishes these days. The way we remove the popcorn is first we spray the texture with water then knock it down with flat spatulas, after that we sand the ceilings. Once the popcorn texture is all removed we start the process of skim coating. Patching and sanding to make ceilings smooth prior to painting. Now ceilings are ready for spray painting. For long lasting durability, we do 1 coat of oil primer and 2 coats of ceiling paint. We can always do the texture removal in a different way, just ask us and we can work it out with you. We usually get a lot of compliments when we do popcorn removal projects. Give us a call for a free estimate.
