Popcorn Ceiling Removal

What Is Popcorn Ceiling?

This type of ceiling texture first appeared in the ‘30s and had been a trend from the late ‘50s throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. Resembling cottage cheese or popcorn itself, this stucco-like material was a cost-effective way to finish a ceiling during its early days. While not a type of finish that you see too often these days, this was the top choice for many builders during its time because of its ability to cover up any imperfections in the drywall and provide some soundproofing.

Modren Day Appeal: Why Should I Remove My Popcorn Ceiling?

These days, popcorn ceilings are no longer as popular as they used to be. In fact, many homeowners are opting to remove their popcorn ceiling and replace it with a new texture. There are several reasons you might want to consider removing your popcorn ceiling too:

Upgrade to a Modern Design

Since this ceiling texture was first used in 1930, keeping this inside your home can make the interior look outdated. Bring your home’s design up-to-date and increase its resale value through popcorn ceiling removal.

Get Rid of Dust & Allergens

Over time, your popcorn ceiling can become a magnet for dust and other allergens. If you or someone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies, removing your popcorn ceiling is a good way to improve the air quality inside your home.

Address Asbestos Concerns

One of the major health hazards these ceilings give is asbestos—a common ingredient used in most popcorn ceilings, and when inhaled in large quantities, the asbestos fibers can cause lung disease and/or scarring of the lungs.

We recently contracted Big Al's to refinish our main floor ceilings and we are really pleased with the result. The entire Big Al's team was on-schedule start to finish. In fact, they finished one day ahead of schedule. While a project like our can be rather dusty, our home was left as clean as could be expected. We, honestly, cannot think of any criticism and we highly recommend Big Al's if you are looking to refinish your ceilings.

I was really impressed with Big Als. A few contractors I know recommended them. They were very professional. We had an opportunity to speak to Al and Kevin. I wouldn’t spend much time looking around for someone else to do your textured ceiling. Big Als is the best and the price is good too.

We had James and Frankie come do the texturing from a water leak and then repaint the family room and kitchen. They are 2 of the greatest guys and go above and beyond expectations and everything has to be perfect before they leave. They also came back on a Sunday to do another repair for us outside our house because we couldn’t get anyone else to come do it. They are exceptional employees and will refer your company to others that need work done. Great job guys.

I have a property for sale that had some previous ceiling repairs that were very poorly done. It kept coming up with people viewing the property and I was fortunate enough to have Big Al's come into repair it and refinish it properly. Cam did an absolutely incredible job and I could not be happier with it. There were four large areas to be repaired and the ceilings are 25 years old so I had no expectations for a perfect blend, but somehow or another he managed to do such a great job that no one can even tell that there were repairs there. Thank you so much!!
