Popcorn, or textured, ceilings enjoyed the peak of their popularity several decades ago. Because of this, many homeowners (perhaps like you) are left with a ceiling texture that might not quite line up with your aesthetic goals. Besides being dated, this kind of surface is also very difficult to repair, patch, or replace in the event of damage or staining.
For all the reasons above, we are often asked to remove popcorn ceilings, smoothing the way for a more modern style.
How Do We Remove the Popcorn Ceiling Texture?
Here is a closer look at our process:
- As with any painting project, the first step is to thoroughly prepare the environment. We will protect your flooring, furniture, and surrounding spaces, containing our work in the process.
- The bumpy texture is treated, then scraped away.
- To ensure a perfectly smooth surface for painting, we will skim coat and patch as needed.
- Finally, we apply your new primer and paint!
Textured Ceiling Repair
If you would like to keep your ceiling texture but need repairs (perhaps due to damage, water stains, or home repair work), we can help with that as well. The Williams Professional Painting team has the experience and equipment needed to match the texture, creating a seamless blend of old and new.
"Both of the men that you sent were excellent and I've very seldom had painters that did such a good job and were so careful. They didn't get a spot of paint on anything other than the walls and they were very polite and as I said they were very careful to cover everything they moved furniture to help me decide on a couple of things and they were very professional and very good. I didn't catch their names but I just wanted you to know that they were good and I do appreciate them. Thank you so much. "
Jose – I just wanted to say how pleased I am with how things are going. I find all the workmen pleasant and hardworking. I have had to leave the house for a few hours most days and I am totally comfortable leaving things in their hands. The newly painted rooms look stunning. I can’t believe it’s my home. The repair of the water damage in the 2nd floor ceiling areas is first rate. The PVC was put up on the most blistered outside trim today. Tomorrow (Wednesday) there will be someone finishing up the interior (mostly in the study) and someone painting outside. The closets off the study have had the wall paper removed and primer applied. That had to be particularly tedious work not to mention demanding physically due to the constricted space involved. The forecast for the next couple of days is for a high in the mid 80’s and dry. That’s a lucky break for us.
Thanks for everything. I think my neighbor has called WPP for an estimate on a job in her family’s home. Word spreads quickly.
The crew has done an outstanding job!! Let Lisa know I love the my new dining room color, she helped me pick it. Couldn't be happier! Looks better in person.
Fairfax Station, VA
I have been thrilled with my entire experience with Williams Professional Painting. The website is easy to negotiate, the phone number and email produce immediate results and they worked with my schedule. Milton Chavez came out for an estimate and he has kind, helpful and efficient. The very next day, Franklin and Carlos showed up. They did a wonderful job. The place looks great and it is so clean. They also put everything back where they found it and even retrieved a couple of "lost" toys that were hiding behind big pieces of furniture. They worked very efficiently, but also thoroughly, and then they walked me through the whole job afterwards. They did a living room that opens to a kitchen and a hallway - all were painted one color - and they also did chair rails, molding and doors. It looks just wonderful. They also took old paint with them that I know longer need. I am so pleased and I will both recommend them to others and use them myself for future jobs.
We can\'t begin to say how pleased we are with the beautiful job that your painters, Jose and Omar, are doing! They are very professional, punctual and responsive to all our questions. They did a remarkable job of removing very stubborn wallpaper, working consistently and systematically until the surface was beautifully prepared for the new paint. We are so happy and excited with the results, as the rooms look exactly as we wanted them to be.
We\'ve been spoiled now because we have witnessed the best in professional painting. We had promised to have our neighbors come in when the work is finished, as they are also planning to paint and we certainly can recommend Williams Professional Painting to them and to our town-house development\'s corporate office, with the greatest confidence. It will be a pleasure to post our raves on Angie\'s List as well.
At the end of last year, when we had finally decided to paint and were in contact with several painting companies, it became immediately clear to us after meeting with you that we would choose Williams Professional Painting. As their representative, Alvis, you conveyed to us everything that we needed to know and were so reassuring and easy to converse with. Choosing your company was the best decision ever. Thank you again for your guidance and patience throughout the process and for referring us to Janine, whose consultations were so valuable in helping us to decide among so many lovely Benjamin Moore colors. She drove out here in heavy snow to make sure that we could finalize our paint choices with confidence. Amazing!
We are now so anxious to move on with the process and paint our upstairs level and our downstairs family room level. Can you imagine anyone actually looking forward to a home painting project? After seeing the beautiful results in our kitchen, living room, dining room and hallways, we can say that we are certainly ready to complete the process in our home. Congratulations on a job well done!
Please pass on to the appropriate people at Williams how pleased we are with the painting of our house at 8977 Fort Hunt Rd. Christian and Daniel were terrific, very professional, courteous and did an outstanding job. They always picked up and cleaned up before leaving for the day and made sure we understood the order and progress which had been made. Christian managed the work in an organized fashion and made certain we were satisfied with their work. They are both an asset to the company.
I want to thank you for the work done recently on our ipe deck. Ricardo Salas and Pablo power washed the deck, removing several years of tree drippings and grime, and then applied the new stain.They did a good job working around the white painted railings and pergola posts.The result is beautiful and the deck looks brand new. The workmanship was excellent and they clearly knew the proper way to apply the stain.
On May 26 & 27, Santos Benitez & Edison painted the exterior trim on my townhouse, as well as making a few other repairs on the exterior. They were prompt, efficient, careful, & skilled. They did an excellent job--as has always been my experience with Williams Professional Painting.
Thank you, once again, for a great job! I will be contacting you as Fall approaches regarding an interior painting job.
