Frequently asked questions pertaining to
popcorn ceiling removal

1. What is the cost of popcorn ceiling removal?

Important to notice, although we will provide different costs, interior painting at Home Painters starts at $1,995 + HST. So what can you do if you have a smaller project? Well, consider bundling other painting, carpentry or handyman services to grow your project and get a better price.

Important: all costs include removal, plastering and sanding but no painting after. It’s a good idea to bundle the painting in the service to get a better deal.

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.
  • Number of colours: if you can keep it to 5 colours or under, you will not see a price increase. The reason? there’s less difficulty to do the job and less paint or stain waste.
  • Different types of paint can increase the cost. We use high-quality Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore paint so you can rest assured you’re well covered. Nevertheless, if you want something very specific or ultra-premium that can potentially increase the price.
  • 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, 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!)
  • Heights: we need to bring scaffolding and assembling and disassembling will add time, thus increasing the price

4. Will my furniture and belongings be protected throughout this process? Because I know it can get quite messy.

Since popcorn ceiling removal can be such a messy process, you can be assured that our team uses plastic sheeting and drop cloths to protect your furniture, walls and flooring throughout the entire process. And they will leave the space in the same manner in which they found it. We also make use of special tools which help to minimize the dust that are made to suck up approximately 80% of the dust throughout the process.

Here is what to do when you are ready to get your own Popcorn Ceiling Removal:

Step 1 Icon


Contact us NOW and we will schedule your in-house popcorn ceiling removal estimate immediately.

Our popcorn ceiling flattening expert will arrive on-site and give you a quote on the spot.

This will involve a needs assessment to ensure that our estimate lines up with your expectations.



When you book the job with us, we will go over how we plan to protect your items, contain the dust as much as possible as well as clean up, since it can be quite a messy process.

We will book an ideal date for you, choose the colour for your ceiling, arrange a flexible payment method and charge your deposit.

Step Three Paint


On the first day, we will show up and review the scope to ensure we’re on the same page.

Then we will immediately start prepping the area, which includes putting down all the drop cloths and readying other areas for removal and flattening.

Once the room is prepped, we will start scraping, skim plastering and sanding to ensure a nice smooth and flat finish.

When the ceiling is completely flat, we will prime it and do one more check for discrepancies. Then we’ll finish it off with a top-of-the-line Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams quality latex paint.

Step Four Quality Check


Since the popcorn ceiling removal process is usually a multi-day process due to dry times, we will update you regularly throughout the job.

Once the job is completed and your ceilings are flattened, we will do a walk-through with you.

Our #1 goal is to ensure that you are happy with the job. We’re only satisfied when you’re 100% satisfied!
