Vancouver Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Whether you are in a new property or an aging home, walls and flooring make up a big part of your first impressions. You might have the cleanest windows or fanciest furniture, but if your ceilings are textured or floors are scuffed, it is hard to notice anything else. When you want to showcase the finer points of your property, the first step is a clean slate for your ceiling.
Heritage homes and nearly every home constructed before the 1990’s has a version of a textured or popcorn ceiling. These simple additions were meant to hide imperfections but a textured ceiling brings a lot more harm than good. From difficult cleaning to potential health risks, these unappealing surfaces leave properly owners with a headache – but Pickle Painters can help!
Why Should You Get Rid of That Popcorn Texture?
Whether you are sprucing up an existing space or are adding the finishing touches to a new build, smooth surfaces are key to a polished look. There isn’t much point in adding a fresh coat of paint to an uneven surface that will show cracks, peeling or result in air pockets or bubbles. Instead of ending up with a subpar result for your ceiling treatment, have a Pickle Painter fix the issue.
Add Value to Your Property: From the outside, adding value to a property sounds like a huge undertaking but it does not have to be so complex. Overhead textures can date a property, making it less appealing to potential buyers or appraisers. Pulling away textures can boost values and improve curb appeal but it is also a dangerous process. The ceiling removal process must be done correctly in order to avoid scrapes, gashes or other unforeseen damage. Removing textures might also present welcome surprises like concrete ceilings underneath, which add character and value.
Create a Clean Finish: In the same way that your walls can suffer from stains and discolourations, so can your ceiling. When you are ready to paint ceilings, it is important to have the right finish. Avoid bumpy or bubbling surfaces by having your popcorn ceiling removed professionally. In addition to proper removal, our team of experts can help you to choose the right paint for the job, from water based to another mode, painting professionals offer expert insight for a great result.
Remove Health Risks: It is a well-known fact that some homes are made with ceilings containing asbestos. This dangerous material was widely used in homes and other structures from the 50’s straight through to the 90’s. When left alone, asbestos is not harmful but as soon as it is disturbed, asbestos becomes a health risk. This means drilling into ceilings, sweeping textures or improper removal can lead to serious illness.
Make Cleaning Easier: Textures trap and hold dirt, dust and spider webs. A simple sweep is not enough to keep surfaces looking clean. A smooth surface can make cleaning easier, removing dirt and allergens for a more comfortable living space.
