Those Acoustic Ceilings – How Come We Have Them?
In the last years of the ’50s, home construction companies began using this treatment in their new houses.
Preparing and painting ceilings takes time. This new approach reduced how long it took. Housebuilders liked the convenience.
Remodelers realized it was an easy technique to masking small holes, stains or owner mistakes.
Quite a few Northwest homeowners liked this new technique too.
Since it was a new technique, they felt it made their home look stylish.
Unfortunately, there was asbestos in many of those first treatments.
During the 1980s, many builders started to go back to typical finishes and paint.
You can still find these features in some Lake Oswego, Tigard or Hillsboro houses.
They are almost always restricted to the living room, hallway and bedrooms, never in a kitchen or full bathroom.
What Homeowners Now Think About These Ceilings
- “Small repairs are hard to paint perfectly”
- “They collect dust”
- “Little bits flake off when you touch them”
- “You can’t repair them easily”
- “They are too hard to clean”
What Are the Steps Involved in This Process?
Before the real work begins, everything that can be moved out is removed.
This includes all the furniture, electrical outlet covers, vent covers, light fixtures and the smoke detector.
In order to prevent any mess, the room will be blanketed in plastic sheeting which will collect anything that falls off.
Some moisture is sprayed on the ceiling. The water gets absorbed and the texture turns soft.
Once the old texture is soft enough, it can be scraped away.
An hour or two later, all the original texture is off and piled on the floor. It gets wrapped up and taken out.
Before priming it, some repairs are usually needed.
Joints need to be hidden and the total surface prepared.
The job ends with the new surface being primed and painted.
Types of Companies That Can Help
Quite a few of these scraping projects are carried out by individuals who spend much of their time doing this type of indoor drywall maintenance.
Other jobs are accomplished by drywall and paint services who come across this regularly as they are carrying out bigger projects.
Either form of service could help you out in an area like Milwaukie or Dunthorpe.
Do You Need To Have a Professional Do the Job?
A few homeowners try doing this project themselves.
Working above your head on a step stool for hours is not much fun.
If you have some experience with sheetrock, you could try doing it.
Most owners decide on bringing in help as opposed to trying to do it by themselves.

Hillsboro Ceiling Repair Cost
Are you wondering about the price range for homes in the far west Portland suburbs?
The key factor drywall experts consider when determining cost is how long the job will take.
If your home is a certain age, there is a slight possibility you could have some asbestos in it.
Some building contractors were adding asbestos products into homes before 1980.
If you know yours is okay – that’s great. If you aren’t positive, you should get it inspected first.
At least the test is easy. You or your drywall person can do it.
All you have to do is send in a small sample of your old texture to a testing service.
It’s simple to obtain a test kit online through a site like Amazon.
Homeowners that have asbestos will simply have a removal procedure which is a lot more complex.
