My popcorn ceilings are painted, can they be removed?
Yes! Yes, and Yes! You may hear that this is not possible, or that you can only scrape as much popcorn as you can and re-float the ceiling, but this is untrue. Painted popcorn ceilings can be removed, they just require more work on our part. No feat, with a slight increase in price, your old, outdated caked on popcorn can be removed!
Do you remove asbestos popcorn ceilings?
Yes, we can deal with any asbestos issue. Sometimes our clients call and are confused and think that all popcorn ceilings contain asbestos, this is not true. Asbestos was banned from use in 1978, and still, some popcorn ceilings before then do not contain asbestos. Either way, we can handle it for you safely!and quickly!
