It’s no longer the 1980s! No homeowner has to live with a stippled or popcorn ceiling. These types of ceilings went out of fashion a long time ago, and for good reason. Stippled or popcorn ceilings collect dust, look ugly and dated, and are incredibly difficult to clean.
If you have a popcorn ceiling, it’s most likely because your home builder decided to reduce their production time and take a shortcut. Popcorn ceilings are usually used to cover up flaws quickly rather than taking the time to do the job properly.
Homeowners are often wary to remove them because it can be quite a messy and daunting task. However, the team here at Fine Finish Wall Systems has years of experience working with these types of ceilings and will remove yours with as little mess and dust as possible.
It’s quick and affordable, and a ceiling upgrade will add visual height to your room!
Did you know the material used to create the stippled look for ceilings often contains asbestos? Asbestos is a hazardous material that can impact your health. Damage and deterioration of a popcorn ceiling over time increases the chance of asbestos particles becoming airborne.
This is a huge health risk because your body can’t break down or remove these fibers if they get lodged in your lungs. This can cause respiratory issues and even disease.
If your ceiling contains asbestos, our team won't sand it down due to health risks. But we will entomb the ceiling and apply a level 5 plaster system directly over it, which means we’ll add a minimum of 4 coats of gypsum plaster. Many tradespeople don’t offer this advanced technique, but it’s designed to keep your family safe in your home.
Our team offers asbestos testing for ceilings through an accredited laboratory. In 24 hours, this test will tell you if your stippled ceiling contains asbestos. From there, we can work out a plan together.
Removing a popcorn ceiling usually leads to a dust-filled and messy room, but we use a dust-free sanding system that provides a 95% dust-free environment.
Our method involves a wet-sand technique or mechanical extraction. We’ve honed our skills to help ensure your home is never filled with debris.
We care about your home, so we developed a 3-level shield floor protection system that protects your floor from rogue dust too.
