Are there any true advantages to popcorn ceiling removal? Why should I go this route?

Popcorn ceiling removal or flattening the stucco can be quite a large project to take on, but there are lots of advantages to be appreciated over time. Flattening your stucco ceiling is actually the cleaner and more hygienic option for your home as popcorn ceilings can be a breeding ground for dirt, dust and cobwebs. Also, when you get rid of popcorn ceilings, it immediately gives your rooms a fresh, modern and up-to-date look and can actually make a room look larger as well.

2. What is the cost of popcorn ceiling removal?

Popcorn ceiling removal is a fantastic war of modernizing your space and giving it a fresh look, especially after spending so much time at home this year! If you’re considering removing your popcorn ceilings, there are many variables involved in the cost that you should be aware of. You have to think about the conditions of the rooms you’re painting if any previous work needs to be done and, consider it can be a very messy process so there’s a lot of prep involved to make sure everything is covered up before starting. 

There’s also the thought of whether or not you’re going to want to hire professional painters to do the job. A lot of people stop and consider — is it worth paying someone to remove your popcorn ceilings?. It really depends on the painting company you hire and what you’re looking for, but the answer is usually yes, it can save you a lot of work and headaches plus if you hire a professional painting company, they can guarantee your satisfaction 100%. As you can see, there is a lot to be discussed here when it comes to the average cost for flattening asbestos ceilings in 2022 whether you hire professional painters or not. So, let’s dig right in and get started!

3. What could affect the price of popcorn ceiling removal?

  • • Difficulty to reach (strange corners that require special machinery to get to).
  • • How soon you want it done, and how fast you need it done. Consider that if you’re in a rush and your painting company has a busy week they might need to pay for extra hours or even move or cancel a job, and that could increase the price. 
  • • Tied to the previous point, if you have a flexible schedule you can take advantage of a low season like the end of winter or the end of summer to get it done probably at a better rate.
  • • The size of the job. The more work you give to your painting company, the lower the per-unit cost. How does this make sense? Well, some materials are cheaper by volume but also, moving around less or spending more time at one job decreases all the logistics and prep work. 
  • • Payment terms i.e. Visa vs e-transfer. A lot of clients like to use their credit cards for many reasons, however, these payments come with a  fee that increases the overall price. 
  • • The amount of preparation involved. i.e. isolating to avoid painting undesired areas (i.e removing plants, covering and taping). We normally don’t move your furniture and personal belongings so if you need help with that we can do it but it will add more time to the process and will increase the bill. (TIP: we can help on the spot to move some really large furniture, so don’t get hurt trying to do that and as long as it’s a fast move we’ll just do it for you!) 
  • • Extreme heights: we need to bring scaffolding and assembling and disassembling will add time, thus increasing the price.
