Removing The Popcorn Ceiling In Stairway And Kitchen

The Process

Removal of the Acoustic-Popcorn Ceiling begins with applying water to every inch of your ceiling. This is done with an airless spray rig that sprays warm water evenly over the ceilings.

When the water has soaked into the ceiling the process of scraping begins. This is done by hand, and usually atop a ladder, scaffold, or lift as necessary.

When the acoustic is substantially removed you will begin to see the results and beauty of this process. But often the ceiling has been slightly damaged in the process.

Repairing the Sheetrock, Recoating the Joints and Nails and smoothing out uneven areas is the final step in the removal process. As you can see this is quite a job!
