Popcorn stucco removal is a cost effective way to increase the re sale value of your home, enhance its appeal and generally modernize the home. It will brighten and beautify the home as popcorn ceilings darken the rooms and make them look dirty. Lets recap why you should consider taking down your popcorn ceilings or popcorn texture .
These are just some of the reasons why you should upgrade your ceilings;

The dangers and problems with popcorn ceilings;
One of the primary problems associated with popcorn ceilings is its risk to asbestos containment, ( especially prior to 1978)….
If the ceiling is contaminated but painted, there is zero risk to the homeowner with respect to risk of exposure. However if ceiling is unpainted the dust and particles are slowly released into the air leaving the homeowner exposed to inhaling .
Furthermore, a popcorn ceiling is very hard to maintain. Popcorn ceilings need to be cleaned constantly in order to remove dirt that gets trapped in the crevices of the ceiling. Did I also mention that a popcorn ceiling is a breeding ground for spiders and dust mites? ( they love it more than my 8 yr old loves TOYS R US…lol)
Lastly, popcorn ceilings give your home a dated look. Not only do they make your ceilings seems lower, they cast a lot of shadows as natural lighting is absorbed and not reflected. By removing the popcorn ceiling you immediately give the ceilings an illusion of added height accompanied by a modern feel.
