Popcorn Ceiling Removal
If you have decided it’s time for your homeowner to remove their popcorn ceiling installation then proper precautions should be taken such as measuring rooms, preparing tools and gathering the correct safety gear before starting any work. The methods used to remove a popcorn ceiling will vary depending on the surface that is being worked on. Before removing any of the existing drywall, it would be advised to use a stud finder and mark all studs in the room for reference and safety precautions during removal work.
Once all precautions have been taken and all materials are gathered, you can now begin removing your popcorn ceiling. Using a drywall saw or utility knife carefully cut along the edge where the ceiling meets the wall to create a clean break along the seam between both surfaces. After following around your entire room with your drywall saw, you can now go back over each area that was cut with a hammer and chisel to remove material from behind. If you suspect there is insulation behind the tiles, then it would be advised to take this precaution before removing any material.
Using medium grit sandpaper and a sanding block at a 45° angle begin sanding down all areas where you removed the drywall compound to make the surface as flat as possible. After going over each area with fine grade sandpaper follow up your work by vacuuming each section to ensure all dust particles have been removed from within the seams. Now that all areas have been prepared for re-texturing, you can now apply joint tape over any cracks or low hanging material along your ceiling line. Using drywall compound carefully fill in all areas that may need attention and then allow ample time for drying prior to sanding.
After allowing the compound to dry completely it can now be sanded with medium-grit sandpaper along the seams of your ceiling creating a more defined line between your original surface and the new retextured one. Using fine-grade sandpaper go over each area again after it has been properly prepped to give you a smooth finish for painting or decorating.
