Popcorn Ceiling Removal

It’s one of those days… sleeting outside, popcorn ceiling coming down inside…
Two biggest tips to popcorn ceilings…1, lots and lots of plastic.  Few jobs get messier, I’d like to see Dirty Jobs do one… 2, Find someone to do it for you..unless you are really don’t mind getting dirty and have a lot of upper body strength for scraping over your head!

popcornIt can be done…we spray it down with a pump up spray bottle of water then carefully scrape it.  It’s easy to gouge it with a scraper.. Next we go over all the bumps and scrapes with sheetrock mud, normally a 40 minute mud so we can shoot it with texture the same day.
Just a cheep 50 dollar texture gun will do the trick, and it can be rented as well.
A corner of the ceiling can be shot several times and pulled back off with a sheetrock spatula until you get the desired look as you experiment with thicker and thinner mud.

    For these children, dieting 4 days a week is definitely not
    the way to proper weight control and healthy internal organs.
    No snacks on this diet is to not dwell too much about your weight loss progress.
    1 set after dinner. So with the New Year coming up I
    am facing a new diet that will yield better dieting 4 days a week results.
