Why Remove Popcorn Ceiling?

Popcorn ceiling removal is an expense that some homeowners avoid as long as possible. Of course, like many other home improvement projects, the long-term benefits of popcorn ceiling removal far outweigh the short-term costs of hiring a popcorn ceiling removal company in San Diego.

For starters, removing popcorn ceilings will give your home a sleeker and more modern look that may actually increase the value of your home. Textured ceilings are also prone to fading, yellowing, and cracking, which can have the opposite effect on the aesthetics and value of your home. Most importantly, depending on the age of your home, popcorn ceilings may contain asbestos or lead, both of which can be harmful to your health.

The Popcorn Ceiling Removal Process

Popcorn ceiling removal is a labor-intensive, multi-step process that is best handled by professionals. Although many DIY-type homeowners choose to start the process on their own, the majority end up calling a popcorn ceiling removal company like The Painting Company of San Diego after they realize the steps involved with removing and replacing textured ceilings.

In general, here is our approach to popcorn ceiling removal:

  • We seal the area using tape, plastic and drop cloths to protect your furnishings and contain any ceiling residue, material, and dust that falls during the removal stage
  • We carefully scrape and scrub the popcorn substance off of the ceilings, taking care not to damage the drywall or substrate underneath
  • We repair, retexture, and/or repaint the freshly exposed ceiling
  • We clean the entire area, oftentimes leaving your home cleaner than when we arrived

How Much Does Popcorn Ceiling Removal in San Diego?

Popcorn ceiling removal prices depend on several different factors. No two popcorn ceiling removal projects are the same, because no two homes are the same. The best way to answer this question is to explain some of the factors that impact the cost to remove a popcorn ceiling:

    • Square Footage – One of the most important considerations is the actual square footage of the popcorn ceiling that needs to be removed. Obviously, the cost to remove the popcorn ceiling from a large living room or in multiple rooms will be higher than a single room or smaller home.
    • Prep and Setup – Prep and setup are usually included in the fees, but there may be exceptions for anything “above and beyond” standard popcorn ceiling removal. For example, if the textured ceilings contain asbestos or lead paint, the process may become more complicated, more expensive, or require additional professional services.
    • Finishing – The cost may also be higher or lower depending on how you want your ceiling to look after the popcorn texture is removed. For example, if you choose to leave your ceilings bare and exposed, the project will cost less than if you decide to repaint your ceilings. There are other finishing options to consider that may impact the overall cost of popcorn ceiling removal.
