Renos that pay... Did you know about Smooth vs. Textured Ceilings

Do you know why you should remove your textured ceilings?

1.  Textured ceilings trap allergens and dust

2.  Textured ceilings are far more likely to harbour cob webs

3.  Textured ceilings are associated with aggravating asthma symptoms

4.  Textured ceilings prior to 1980 often contained asbestos

5.  Textured ceilings cannot be easily cleaned

6.  Textured ceilings can never be perfectly matched after a leak or damage

7.  Textured ceilings take natural light away from your living space

8.  Textured ceilings date your home.

9.  Textured ceilings have little visual appeal

10. Textured ceilings devalue your property

 

Do you know what your options are?

1 ) Conventional Removal Method:

   a ) Cover all areas/furniture items that have to be protected

   b ) Scrape and remove the texture from your ceilings

   c ) Skim coat the entire ceiling with non-toxic drywall compound

   d ) Finish the ceiling with a high level finish coat

   e ) Sand out the entire ceiling

    f ) Remove the protective coverings and vacuum the place out

 

2 ) No-Scraping Method:

   a ) Cover all areas/furniture items that have to be protected

   b ) Cover the entire ceiling including the texture with bonding agent

   c ) Skim coat the entire ceiling with an exclusive cementitious coating

   d ) Skim coat the entire ceiling again with non-toxic drywall compound

   e ) Finish the ceiling with a high finish coat

    f ) Sand out the entire ceiling

   g ) Remove the protective coverings and vacuum 

 

This is the cleaner removal method, and it produces a far more durable product

than a standard drywall ceiling. This method is especially effective if you have asbestos

in your ceiling texture because it doesn’t disturb the asbestos. Instead it buries the

existing ceiling texture in a bonding agent followed by a cement like coating. This

will seal in the asbestos and the ceiling texture for the rest of your home’s life,

therefore eliminating the threat of air-borne asbestos from the ceiling texture.
