New York City and nearby towns in New Jersey have thousands of buildings with popcorn ceilings, also known as textured ceilings.
Many of those buildings were built before 1980, which means they are highly likely to have asbestos in their paint. There are millions of square feet of textured ceilings in this area and only 2 well-known solutions for getting rid of popcorn ceiling:
1. Cover popcorn ceiling with drywall, tape and paint it.
2. Scrape popcorn ceiling paint, skim-coat and paint the ceiling.
There are well-known issues with these two methods. Asbestos in popcorn ceilings compounds the cost of removing the ceiling paint. The cost of asbestos remediation in New York and New Jersey can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The owners have to vacate the apartment, remove all furniture, go through lengthy popcorn removal and asbestos testing process and inspection approval.
Some of our customers have reported that they postponed an entire apartment renovation for many years due to extremely high cost to remove popcorn ceiling with asbestos.
Even if your ceiling is asbestos-free, the process is still extremely invasive and messy. Popcorn Ceiling removal involves moving all the furniture and covering all the walls, floors and cabinets. Most textured ceilings have to be sprayed before they can be scrapped. Plastering and skim coating also require time for each coat to dry before getting sanded, which produces massive amounts of dust.
Removing popcorn ceiling also cancels the acoustic benefit of the textured paint, which was designed as an inexpensive sound treatment. Thus, covering or scraping textured ceiling will only contribute to the airborne noise issue in your apartment or house.
Lastly, but most importantly, both methods (scraping and covering popcorn ceiling with drywall) do absolutely nothing to improve your overhead lighting situation in your apartment. It is challenging to add lighting into the concrete ceiling: it requires either dropping the ceiling 4”-6” or channeling into the concrete slab, which is prohibited in most buildings because it weakens the slab. Most apartments with concrete textured ceilings are stuck with the original lighting layout since the day the building was built.
