Ceiling Stucco / Popcorn Flattening Job in Thornhill

Ceiling Stucco / Popcorn Flattening  – At Home Painters Toronto we do a lot of things besides just painting. Here is a stucco/popcorn ceiling-flattening job we undertook in Thornhill, Ontario.

When making the change from Stucco to Flat ceilings there are important steps to take to achieve excellent results!

Steps to Ceiling Stucco / Popcorn Flattening

Step 1: Set up the room for Ceiling Popcorn Flattening

As you can see, we first plastic up the room to protect the walls, floors and any furniture from getting damaged and covered in dust to allow for easy and thorough clean up.

Step 2: Scrape the Stucco/Popcorn off as much as possible

Next we scrape down the existing stucco/popcorn allowing for a better surface for the application of several skim coats of plaster on the ceiling.

Step 3: The application of skim coats of plaster on the ceiling

Step 4: Feather/pole sanding in between each skim coat of plaster

As you can see in between each coat of plaster we do a basic feather sanding to get it smoother and smoother.

We keep repeating steps 3 and 4 until we get a desired smooth finish. In this case, 3 coats of plaster was all that we needed in order to achieve a smooth finish as you can see

Step 5: Once it’s smooth, we apply a latex primer to the entire area

Once we have achieved a smooth finish, we need to apply a late primer to the ceiling.

Step 6: One more final check for a perfect finish

After the primer has been applied, we check 1 more time for minor imperfections. If there are any imperfections we quickly plaster, sand and prime those areas to achieve our final result.

Step 7: Final finish coats of paint are applied


Ceiling Stucco / Popcorn Flattening job final result:

As you can see this is a fresh and beautiful flattened ceiling. The room now looks cleaner, more open, and more modern and the clients were thrilled with the results!
