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.
Thanks for a beautiful job. Also for the little extra favors like changing light bulbs in high places, power washing surrounding horizontal surfaces, trimming an overhanging branch & a little extra caulk where it was really needed.
Thank you so much. I am very pleased with how beautifully everything turned out. It was a pleasure for me to have the Williams Professional Painting team transform my living space. The guys who came to the house were just great. Walking through the door of my newly painted house makes me very happy. It feels like a new house!
Thank you for all your help in selecting the paint colors and also for dropping off the list of paints at my door the other day.
Milton of Williams Painting contacted me quickly after I requested an estimate and arranged to come to my home. He answered all my questions, including giving me prompt follow-up answers to my additional email questions. That may sound routine, but it hasn't always been my experience with other companies.
Luis, Alberto and Jose were the men who worked on my home. The arrived very promptly on the day they'd promised, ready to work. At first it seemed that they were moving a little slowly, but that wasn't slowness. It was thoroughness in the prep work. They addressed all the cracks and nail pops they found. They fully repaired a couple of old bad drywall repairs, to the point that, even knowing where to look, I can see no evidence of the prior damage. I'd asked if the popped nails could be replaced by screws in the repair. Milton had assured me they could, and they did. They took that kind of care throughout. The finished job is excellent.
They were careful in moving and covering my furniture. They cleaned up every day. They were always pleasant to work with and to have in my home. Luis' last word to me as he left was a reminder of the warranty; to let them know if I found anything afterward and to assure me they will come back to address anything they might have missed. After my experience with them, I have no doubt they back up their work.
I'm completely happy with their work and would recommend this company. I will use Williams Painting again.

Alvis, the estimator I worked with, was very conscientious. He was very responsive and had great follow up. I had originally chosen another painting company to do the work but they backed out on short notice. When I contacted Alvis at Williams Painting he had a crew out right away. They did some of the work after hours and on the weekend but did not mark up the price. I have nothing but good things to say about Williams Painting.

Hi Amy & Alvis,
Adalberto & Cristian left about an hour ago, after finishing up the painting. I just wanted you to know that not only did they do a fantastic job, but they worked clean, were professional & were very accommodating. Every evening, before they left, they always checked with me to make sure that everything that I requested was being done, even to the point where I had forgotten to mention to the office , when I told them what paint I needed, that I needed Hi Gloss paint for some of the items. The next day they had the Hi Gloss. Nothing was ever a mess. the room furniture & floors were well protected with tarps, even all the flooring from the front door to whatever room they were working on. Their painting was flawless. I know, because I used to do all our painting, so I know what it takes to do such a fantastic job. Even with me taking my time, I could not do it half as good as Adalberto & Cristian.
In the evening when they were finishing up, they made sure everything was orderly, with their supplies organized & the floors vacuumed. Their was another gentleman here on the first day & his work was flawless as well.
I tried to write a review on some of the sites on the card that Adalberto gave me, but I guess I am not very computer savvy & could not do it. I will see if my husband can help me get to the correct site.
So thank you for your wonderful service. This is our 3rd time using Williams Professional Painting & we have never been disappointed & always extremely pleased.
It was such a pleasure to have Franklin and Jorge back for another painting chapter chez Sugiyama/Ritts. They are terrific painters, impressive dry wall experts, remarkably efficient, and all-around wonderful people. Franklin was especially kind helping me pick another great color for a room. And they always leave the house in better condition than it was when they got here.
I don’t know what I would do without your company and all its great people!
I'm writing to provide a review for Ricardo Salas and Edison for their work at Cameron Mills Rd.
We had a great experience with both Williams Professional Painting and Ricardo and Edison. First off, the estimate process was so much easier and straight forward than I expected. It was easy to schedule a time on the weekend to get an estimate and Dave showed up ready to answer any of my questions and was more than willing to provide information. He also responded to my emails etc. promptly, making it painless to schedule and move forward with the project. This is a very different experience than with other contractors we have attempted to work with. We also had the pleasure of using the company's free design services at their office location. It made picking a color far more enjoyable than going to a crowded Home Depot and the advice was very valuable.
Second, Ricardo and Edison's work was fantastic. They showed up right on time, covered all the walkways, protected the furniture, and worked efficiently. Ricardo ended up doing 2 out of the 3 days of work by himself, and we had the same experience. He showed up right on time, making it easy for me to ask any questions I had before I had to head off to work, and was very respectful of our home. The paint job is beautiful and my house was left clean and undamaged. I would be happy to work with Ricardo again in the future and would certainly recommend Williams Professional Painting to others.
I had Ricardo, Salas and Cesar plus a couple of other guys work on my son's house. They did an excellent job and worked very hard throughout the project. The foreman(Ricardo, I think) kept me abreast of the progress throughout while I was at the house. The paint job is excellent.
Jose and I did not communicate well during the estimation process. The estimate that I received was not the total amount (excluding additional carpentry work needed) I expected it to be. I was shocked when I saw the final bill. The terms of agreement also showed that I would receive two coats and I did not. I was told that was only true for the pvc boards and door, that the paint was so good in covering that I did not need two coats. When I asked the foreman(Ricardo, I think) about painting the mullions he said they normally do not do those. I told him to call Jose and Jose confirmed that they would be done. So, the job was excellent but the estimation process did not go well. I'm sorry about this because Jose is a very nice guy and I enjoyed working with him, and he was concerned and respectful. I was told that Williams would replace two facial boards that go on the roof area free of cost. Thank you very much.
Overall, what is most important is that you did a great job and treated me respectfully and the job diligently. I hope the same can be said for me.
Please take special note that all the painters on my job worked hard and diligently throughout.
