Popcorn ceiling removal Toronto and GTA

Posted on 27 January, 2017 at 18:35

Nowadays popcorn ceiling, stucco ceiling or orange peel are slang of acoustic ceiling. From the 1950s till 1978, according to the North America standard, residential construction acoustic ceiling had to be applied for the ceiling in the bedroom, hallway and living room in order to hide the imperfections and acoustical characteristic. This approach helped to minimize cost. That popcorn ceiling very often contains white asbestos. What is white asbestos? It is a soft, fibrous silicate mineral in the serpentine subgroup of phyllosilicates. Why is it bad? Because this type of asbestos is considering to be a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It may cause of lung cancer, pleural mesothelioma.

In the 1980s after the ban, white asbestos in popcorn ceiling was replaced by paper-based or Styrofoam product.

Popcorn ceiling removal is a very messy job if it is been doing without experience and properly tools.

We highly recommend hiring professional such as the team from Renovated-Home. We have all requirement tools, expertise, and knowledge in order to make a nice smooth ceiling in your house or condo.

If you decide to remove popcorn ceiling stucco by yourself, Renovated-Home provides you some tips how to remove popcorn ceiling properly:

- You should cover all furniture, floor, windows and stairs by the plastic and drop sheets. Remember, that during the process of ceiling stucco removal you should keep your rooms empty as much as you can in order to get the best result.

- If your popcorn ceiling hasn't been painted before, it is a good idea to spray warm water on the ceiling and let the water soap about 20 min. Repeat the process one more time and then carefully remove popcorn from your ceiling. After all, you need to do sanding of all surface.

- Apply the first coat of plaster compound on all surface and let it dry. Then you have to sand by the hard grid until you get the smooth surface. Afterwards, you need to apply a skim coat and to do a final sanding with 180grid. If it needs just to repeat the process on some spots.

- Paint your smooth ceiling by using a primer and white flat finish paint.

- Clean the working area

 

This process usually takes around a week if you have a team of 2 or 3 people (house 2400 sq.f. approx.) It will take longer if you have a lot of furniture and high ceiling 20 ft

Remember, it is better to hire professional from Renovated-Home in order to remove ceiling stucco promptly and properly. We have a lot of clients who tried to remove stucco by themselves. Usually, they make mistakes and damage the ceiling that make our job even harder. If you have a small room definitely you can do it by yourself, but Renovated-Home is not recommending to remove popcorn ceiling by yourself in the entire house or condo.

Sergio and his group did an amazing job on my one-bedroom condo. They were professional, the quoted price was accurate, and they finished earlier than expected. They took the utmost care in protecting my furniture and were courteous to lay down my mattress so I could stay in my apartment. Sergio went above and beyond by returning months later to install a shelf that was taken down during the crown moulding installation. I would give him 10 stars out of 5. I have recommended him to all my friends, family and real-estate agent.

There are definitely plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to carry up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up where an important thing will probably be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment�s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair in case you werent too busy searching for attention.
