Osborne Painting has found that one of the most common services customers ask about is Apex Popcorn Ceiling Removal. This is because many older houses in Apex had popcorn ceilings installed during the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Although they were considered a modern design choice then, many homeowners have started to consider popcorn ceilings to be either an eyesore or an anachronism, and have started to desire popcorn ceiling removal in Apex. Due to Osborne Painting’s extensive experience in other home improvement projects, we have often received calls to perform this service, and have gained much experience removing popcorn ceilings in Apex.
Benefits of Apex Popcorn Ceiling Removal
There are a number of reasons why it is often a better idea to entrust popcorn ceiling removal in Apex to the professionals. The two main concerns that we often have to deal with are safety and cost. The safety concerns come primarily from the possibility of asbestos having been used as a construction material in popcorn ceilings installed in the 70s and early 80s. The cost concern is that an amateur removal can damage the rest of the room or ceiling, necessitating a much more expensive repainting and repair. Calling us will allow us to check your project for:
- Safety – If your home was built in the 1970s or 1980s, or if it had a popcorn ceiling installed during those decades, your home might have asbestos in the construction. Originally used due to its fire-retardant nature, in 1978 asbestos was banned as a carcinogen. Because of the relatively late ban, many Apex popcorn ceilings constructed, renovated, or added in the 70s and 80s were constructed with asbestos. Due to the nature of asbestos, scraping your popcorn ceiling can be detrimental for both the handyman and home occupants if not done correctly. Osborne Painting can test for asbestos, and if it’s detected, we can advise you on your options.
- An Increase in Home Value – Many homeowners in Apex consider popcorn ceilings to be an outdated design choice. When they do home tours, unless you get your Apex popcorn ceiling removed, your home might be devalued. Inversely, if you remove your popcorn ceiling, your market value will go up.
- Modernity – Apex popcorn ceilings are still popular for musically-inclined homeowners as they offer good acoustics. Most Apex homeowners, however, consider popcorn ceilings to be a dated design choice. Removing your popcorn ceilings and exposing the newly-smooth surfaces can update your room and allow for a more modern look.
After removal of the popcorn, we prepare the ceiling to best receive the new paint that will go there. After we’re finished with the removal of your popcorn ceilings, our interior painters can then come in and paint your newly-smooth surfaces, giving your room a whole new look!
