popcornCeilingRemoval_bodyPopcorn ceilings are old and outdated.  Everyone knows that.  People are clamoring to get popcorn ceiling removal in Orlando to help refresh the rooms in their home.  But, then, that begs the question: what should you replace your popcorn ceilings with?  In this blog, our popcorn ceiling removal experts want to explore some options for you to make sure your ceilings are the highlights of all your rooms.

Smooth Sailing

After the popcorn ceiling removal job is completed by the team at New Ceilings, you may find that the taping under the popcorn is not ideal based on the original ceiling construction.  If your goal is a perfectly smooth, flat ceiling, you will need to skim coat. Skim coat is the process of adding a flat layer of drywall compound with a drywall knife.  This will accomplish the smooth texture, while hiding any major mistakes that the popcorn was covering.

A Little Texture to the Mix

If a perfectly flat, smooth surface is not what you’re looking for, and you’re still looking for a simple texture, then a knockdown texture could be the solution for you.  You can play this method a bit more fast and loose than you can with some of the other methods, but you need to make sure that you prime the mud before it dries.

Tackling Terrific Tile

While some may suggest you can just cover the popcorn with tiles, it’s still better to get the popcorn removed so that you don’t have to deal with it at a later date and regret your initial decision.  Also, the texture in the ceiling can make it difficult to hold certain types of tile.  You will want to talk with the professionals at New Ceilings about your tiling options, of course, before you make any decisions.
Making large changes to your home can definitely be a challenge, but doing so will leave you feeling refreshed when you finally complete the job.  Contact New Ceilings for a free in-home estimate for popcorn ceiling removal, drywall repair and installation or painting through our website.  We’re happy to help you make the changes you want to see in your home.
