A Little History Regarding These Acoustic Ceilings
Some new home builders started using this type of technique back in the late 1950s.
It grew popular when building firms found out they didn’t need to spend time and money preparing and painting a ceiling. They could just spray it on.
This process was a simple way for remodelers to cover over stains, patched holes or mistakes.
Homeowners in Missouri also preferred this process because it looked fresh and different.
Unfortunately, there was asbestos in many of those preliminary treatments.
Most house builders began to go back to smooth finishes and paint as the ’80s ended.
You can still find these features in quite a few houses around the Midwest.
They are almost always restricted to the living room, bedroom and hallway, never in the kitchen or full bathroom.
Features of These Surfaces Owners Don’t Like
- “They collect a lot of dust”
- “They are too hard to clean”
- “It’s hard to patch them”
- “They are hard to paint when stained”
- “If you touch them – they crumble”
Replacing My Ceilings – What is the Process?
The initial step is to remove absolutely everything from the room or rooms.
In order to prevent any mess, the room will be covered in plastic sheeting which will capture all the stuff that falls off.
A liquid solution is carefully put on the old surface.
The water gets soaked up quickly and the old surface turns soft.
The old texture is now able to be scraped off the original sheetrock.
Once all the old product is laying down on the plastic floor, it is tightly wrapped up and carted off.
The surface isn’t yet ready for paint. It will need to be recoated and made perfect.
And then it’s ready for priming and painting.
What Type of Company Does This Work?
Many of the repair jobs in this area are completed by people who focus on doing this work just about exclusively.
The remaining jobs are carried out by drywall and paint services who come across this regularly while they are doing bigger jobs.
These are the kind of companies that could address your problem.
Could You Try Doing the Work Yourself?
Are you thinking about doing this job on your own?
It isn’t the most difficult remodeling project, but it isn’t much fun either.
The toughest aspect is preparing the surface totally smooth so you can prime and paint it.
While some homeowners give some thought to attempting the job themselves, they almost always decide not to.
