How To Keep Your Stucco or Popcorn Ceiling in Top Shape
Stucco ceilings, like any other surface, can experience water or smoke damage, fade due to sunlight, and get dirty, dingy and worn with age. Don’t neglect your ceiling. To keep your ceiling looking great, it’s important to make ceiling painting and repairs a part of your regular home maintenance.
How Often Should You Paint or Repair Your Popcorn Ceiling?
In order to keep your ceiling in good shape, regular maintenance is key. So how often should you refresh your ceiling? Well, the thing with a popcorn ceiling is that it can hide dirt and grime well. Ceiling paint tends to last twice as long as wall paint. Many professionals believe a ceiling should be repainted approximately every 10-years.
But, if your ceiling falls into disrepair before then, it’s important to make the fixes as soon as you can.
Painting A Stucco Ceiling
A dirty ceiling in disrepair will call attention to itself, even if your ceiling wasn’t part of your style or design. That’s why it’s important to keep your ceiling clean and freshly painted. If you are looking to add style to your room, you can add a lot of character by painting your ceiling. There is a wide range of masonry paints on the market now which means you have an extensive choice of colour. Painting your ceiling can also improve the air quality in your home by reducing the dust that is attracted to untreated stucco.
There are several steps involved in painting a stucco ceiling which is why many homeowners leave the task to the professionals. From dusting and cleaning the ceiling to priming and painting, it’s a big job that can really weigh on your neck, shoulders and arm muscles. Consider hiring in the professionals and you’ll rest easy!
Paint Your Ceiling White – white is a common paint colour for a popcorn ceiling. It is crisp and clean. So when it comes time to freshen up your ceiling, white can be a great way to go.
Consider a Colour – ceilings with colour are making a comeback! Designers will regularly choose a contrasting or complimentary colour for a ceiling to extend the space. If you are looking to add some style to your space, consider adding a colour to your ceiling.
