Depending on the year that your home was built, you may currently have a popcorn ceiling built by a local Philadelphia contractor. This type of spray-on ceiling treatment has been very popular in homes built between 1950 and 1980. Its application can be found all throughout the home, but may be more popular in hallways and bedrooms. Although not commonly found in newer construction, this type of ceiling does have its own set of benefits that are still useful today. Its white color complements any décor, the thick coating helps to reduce noise and lastly, the texture helps to hide imperfections.
Popcorn ceilings are a great option to consider if you are looking to cover up some unsightly areas. However, there are a few things that you may want to consider before making a final decision. While the texture itself does have some desirable qualities, it also has a few drawbacks. For example, due to the thick and bumpy texture it is near impossible to paint. Additionally, it is hard to keep clean, especially in a dusty part of the house. Lastly, it can be cumbersome to repair should you have a leaky roof or some other types of damage.
Perhaps you are looking to update the look of your home and are thinking about removing your popcorn ceiling. Keep in mind that if your home was built before 1980, your ceiling contains asbestos, and will need to be removed by a certified professional. This is to ensure that you do not come into contact with this highly dangerous material. Even if your home was built after 1980, you still may want to seek the help of a professional since the job is very messy and ultimately also very time consuming.
