WHY CHOOSE US?
We offer you an innovative solution to your ceiling problems.
Do you live in Vancouver, BC and are you looking for a way to get rid of the popcorn ceiling or solve another ceiling problem, such as leveling or lack of lighting?
The two most popular ways to do this have been scraping the ceiling or covering it with drywall. There are issues and limitations to both of these methods. Scraping popcorn ceilings containing asbestos can cause deadly cancer and cost tens of thousands of dollars. Covering textured concrete ceilings with drywall requires additional framing, is labor intensive and expensive. Both methods require plastering, sanding, and painting.
Do not worry about expensive asbestos popcorn ceiling removal, scraping popcorn ceiling or covering textured ceiling with drywall. There is a third, unique method for dealing with a popcorn ceiling. It allows you to have a level, smooth ceiling finish, safely encapsulates old popcorn and utilizes many modern LED lighting options beautifully and cost-effectively.
Stretch Fabric Ceiling – is the modern way to upgrade your old ceiling and get the most out of your renovation.
If you are still considering a contractor who can scrape your ceiling or cover it with drywall, ask them what warranty they offer against cracking, or pealing or future aging of their finished product – your new ceiling.
Is a painting contractor going to offer you a 15 year warranty or at least 5 years on the ceiling they have just plastered and painted?
After all, you are investing into your property, so you are looking for the best value… When you choose DESCOR® Stretch Ceiling system installed by an authorized installer, your investment is instantly covered by a Lifetime Warranty.
Installation of DESCOR® ceiling system is a clean process, which takes on average, half the time of traditional methods.
