Popcorn Ceiling Removal

We agree with Jason who states “Popcorn belongs in a movie theater bucket drenched in butter, not on a ceiling. Cottage Cheese? Well let’s just say it’s something I never want to see in large quantities when I look up.”
Popcorn ceilings are widespread in homes built during the 60’s and 70’s and may contain asbestos which makes their removal a more costly and difficult process. If you no longer want to live under a veil of cottage cheese then these step-by-steps from DoItYourself.com and Jasongraphix should be enough to convince you to remove or keep your textured ceiling.

    Ive taken popcorn down in 3 homes and it really isn’t that bad unless the previous homeowner was a smoker, then its horrible. The key is to do it before you move in and use more water than you think you should. It should just slide right off it large chunks. If you are seeing any dust you need more water.
