Vancouver Stretch Ceiling and LED Concrete Ceiling Lighting Services
Popcorn Ceiling Replacement in Vancouver
Do you live in Vancouver, BC, and are you looking for a way to get rid of the popcorn ceiling in your home? Or maybe you're trying to solve another ceiling problem, such as leveling, or lack of overhead lighting in your condo?
The two most popular ways to get rid of popcorn ceilings 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.
Don't worry about expensive asbestos popcorn ceiling removal, scraping popcorn ceiling, or covering the 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.
A stretch ceiling system is a 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 peeling, 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?
