Why Do We Have These Kinds of Ceilings in Our Houses?
New home builders started using this type of treatment back in the later 1950s.
Home builders liked it when they found out they didn’t have to spend so much time carefully finishing and painting ceilings.
People remodeling their houses enjoyed how convenient it was to disguise spots, holes or prior repair mistakes.
Many Illinois homeowners originally liked it too because it was fashionable at the time.
However, in the early stages, some of these treatments used asbestos.
After living with these acoustical ceilings for a few years, many homeowners began to see their disadvantages.
It’s common to find homes near Ashburn or Trinity Park which were constructed during this time to include acoustic ceilings in the bedroom, hallway or living room.
Five Reasons To Have Them Scraped Off
- It flakes off when bumped or touched
- It attracts dust
- It’s hard to patch or repair
- It’s not easy to clean
- Spots are hard to paint
How It Will Get Taken Down
Before the real work begins, everything that can be taken out is removed.
This includes all the furniture, vent covers, electrical outlet covers, light fixtures and the smoke detector.
The room gets protected in plastic sheeting so there won’t be any mess during the scraping process.
A liquid solution is thoroughly sprayed on the old surface.
The moisture gets absorbed quickly and the old surface turns softer.
As the old texture softens up, it is set to scrape off.
The process keeps going until all the original material has been taken off. It gets gathered up and carted off.
The existing surface might need some repairs. At the very least, it should need to be smoothed and ready for paint.
And then it’s ready for priming and painting.
