Benefits of Cary Popcorn Ceiling Removal

There are a number of reasons why it is a better idea to hire a professional for popcorn ceiling removal in Cary. It is often both safer and cheaper to call a professional such as Osborne Painting due to the possibility of asbestos, the possible damage to the room and an understanding of the exact process to get the popcorn material off with a minimum of fuss. 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 popcorn ceiling might have been made with asbestos. Asbestos was originally used in home due to its fire-retardant nature, but in 1978 it was banned as a carcinogen. As it wasn’t banned until 1978, many Cary homes either constructed or renovated in the 1970s or early 1980s are built with asbestos. Not only can scraping or otherwise disturbing this asbestos be harmful to the person removing the popcorn ceilings, it can also be detrimental for those living in the house if the removal is 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 – Popcorn ceilings aren’t as popular as they were in the ‘70s and ‘80s; nowadays home buyers in Cary tend to look for smooth ceilings that they can paint or detail. This means that if you remove your popcorn ceiling, your market value will go up.
  • Modernity – Cary popcorn ceilings are still popular for a certain musically-inclined subset of the population as they offer good acoustics to homeowner. However, most Cary homeowners consider popcorn ceilings to be a dated design choice. Removing your popcorn ceilings in Cary and exposing the newly-smooth surfaces can update your room and allow for a more modern look.
    After removal of the popcorn, intensive preparation work is done to ready the ceiling to best receive the paint. 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!
