Popcorn Ceiling Removal is one of our most popular offerings in Chapel Hill. As many Chapel Hill houses were built or renovated in the 70s and 80s, they often have popcorn ceiling within. Popcorn ceilings used to be considered the height of design taste, due both to their acoustic properties and their relative ease of installation. However, many current homeowners consider them a dated design. During Osborne’s other home improvement project, we have often had to remove popcorn ceilings, and have gained much experience removing popcorn ceilings in Chapel Hill.

Benefits of Chapel Hill Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Many homeowners attempt to do their own popcorn ceiling removal in Chapel Hill. While this is not impossible, it is safer and often less expensive to hire a professional due to two main concerns: safety and cost. Asbestos is the number one safety concern for popcorn ceiling removal in Chapel Hill. As the height of popcorn ceiling installation was when asbestos was used in its construction, older popcorn ceilings in Chapel Hill could possibly be made with asbestos. Asbestos is carcinogenic, and disrupting the fibers without the correct training and procedures can cause serious problems for both the handyman and the residents of the house. 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. Asbestos was initially used in construction due to its fire resistant properties and relative tensile strength. The downside to all of this is that asbestos is highly dangerous to inhale. As such 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  • An Increase in Home Value – Many homeowners in Chapel Hill consider popcorn ceilings to be an outdated design choice. Home tours can expose popcorn ceilings to the light of day and drive down the offering on your home. In situations such as these, it is actually cheaper to get your Chapel Hill popcorn ceiling removed beforehand.
  • Modernity – For musically-inclined residents, popcorn ceilings in Chapel Hill are still a popular option, as their acoustic properties are better than normal ceilings. However, these homeowners are in a minority, and most homeowners consider popcorn ceilings to be an eyesore. 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!
