If you’re reading this, it’s most likely because you are tired of staring up at your popcorn ceilings and you’re debating the best way to go about getting it removed. Unfortunately, popcorn ceiling removal is a time consuming and messy process when not taken care of by a professional.
The Costs of Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Typically, the removal of a 500 sq. ft. popcorn ceiling takes at least 20 hours. If you have a larger space to remove than that, you can expect it to take more than 20 hours, which will more than likely need to spread out over days or weeks.
If you try to DIY the project, you should be prepared for a learning curve. You’ll also have to buy all of the necessary materials, tools, supplies, remove the debris, and do the cleanup all by yourself.
The amount of time it takes to remove a popcorn ceiling doesn’t stop at the scraping either. Retexturing and repainting the ceiling is an entirely new project of it’s own. While the bulk of this project would be the popcorn ceiling removal process, there will still be a lot of work left to do before you will have finished ceilings.
There’s A Faster Solution
What if we told you that there was a better and faster solution to popcorn ceiling removal?
While scraping is the traditional method for removing popcorn ceilings, a stretch ceiling system can quickly and easily cover your existing popcorn ceiling. An experienced stretch fabric installation crew like NuWalls Hawaii can set up a stretch fabric ceiling in a fraction of the time it would take to scrape it all off.
If your popcorn ceiling does contain asbestos or other hazardous materials, a stretch ceiling system can safely encapsulate your current ceilings, so it’ll be like the popcorn ceiling was never there. Because your old ceiling won’t have to come down, you won’t have to worry about any prep work like covering or moving furniture, or about the messy cleanup afterwards.
