Popcorn Ceiling Removal | Great Dominion Painting

Popcorn ceiling is a classic look which was massively popular. They helped to absorb sound and echoes, which made them a standard for homes in the past. Since then, the look has fallen out style, and is rarely used in modern design. It’s still present in a lot of older homes and it’s due to the fact that it can be extremely difficult to remove popcorn ceiling.


Popcorn ceiling is spray-on or paint-on ceiling treatment that used to contain white asbestos, but after the 70s, it moved to a paper-based or Styrofoam product to create the texture. Removing it can turn into a much more complicated process, depending on what kind of material was initially used.


  • All furniture and floors are fully masked due to the sufficient level of residue, dust and material removed.
  • Unpainted stucco (popcorn ceiling) is easier to remove as it just requires a water-based solution which dissolves the stucco.
  • Painted stucco requires increased effort to remove and often results in further prep after removal due to the substrate being affected.
  • After removal, the substrate will be fully filled to provide a new flat finish.
  • New filling will be sanded and primed in advance of application of the finish coat.
  • All removed material will be vacuumed and cleaned.


Easily, it gives your home a complete modern look. In newer homes, it’s satisfying to see a smooth, freshly painting sealing without imperfections. If you’re used to popcorn ceiling, you will be surprised at how much of a difference it makes. If you’re planning to list your home on the market anytime soon, it’s a great idea to remove popcorn ceiling from all your spaces.

When these surfaces start to become worn after a while, they often lose their original white shine and become yellow. This easily happens if there’s a water leak from the roof, any water damage in general. In the long run, it’s better to remove it rather than reapplying, since it will only occur again.


It’s critical to be aware that some older homes might have popcorn ceilings that contain asbestos and lead. If your house was built prior to 1981, it will need to be checked for these substances before you can start removing it.

If asbestos or lead is present, this makes the process much more complicated. The job must absolutely be done by experts who are trained in dealing with asbestos. It’s important to take extra safety precautions, as breathing in the dust can lead to death. You’ll have to completely isolate and seal off the room during the removal process until removal and painting is finished.
