Are you living in a home in Jacksonville, Florida that has popcorn ceilings? Back in the 1950’s through the 1980’s, many homeowners chose to give their ceilings this cottage-cheese look by spraying on a chalk and wallboard mixture. Popcorn ceilings were the rage and became a popular option for soundproofing rooms.

If you ‘re living with a popcorn ceiling in your home, you may be losing resale value. Today’s homeowners consider popcorn ceilings a turnoff and will easily walk away from a home on the real estate market that has them. Put money back into your pocket by removing your Jacksonville, Florida popcorn ceiling.

The Correct Process to Remove Your Jacksonville, Florida Popcorn Ceiling

As professional popcorn-ceiling-removal specialists in Jacksonville, Florida, we take every measure to ensure that you realize a beautiful new ceiling which you can enjoy for years to come. While the easy part is removing the popcorn texture, the difficult part is containing the mess that this procedure causes. Before beginning the task, we use a plastic covering to mask off the entire area including walls, floors and any furnishings which could be affected. Next, using a sprayer, we wet down the popcorn texture and let it thoroughly dampen for 10-15 minutes. This allows us to more easily scrape the popcorn texture from your ceiling. Our next step is to sand the ceilings, make any needed repairs, and apply the ceiling texture you have chosen.

We offer two types of ceiling textures to replace your old popcorn ceilings.

Knockdown is a drywall compound mixture that adds interest to your ceiling. Many new homes feature it today because it hides ceiling imperfections, stains, and uneven spaces.

If you don’t like the look of a textured ceiling, we offer a flat finish which has an ultra-modern, smooth look. This texture tends to open a room up giving it the illusion of more space.

Once your new ceiling texture is applied, we apply one coat of primer to seal any repairs or texture and then a top coat of paint.
