Why Does My House Have Acoustic Ceilings?
This feature began being used in homes in the later ’50s.
It became favored by builders since it minimized the time spent on preparing ceilings for paint.
Remodelers appreciated it because it was a good way to hide stains, patched areas or irregular ceilings.
Homeowners in San Diego County also liked how it helped cut down on noise a little bit in their home.
An issue with these first products is they often used some asbestos.
After living with these acoustic ceilings for some years, many homeowners began to see their downsides.
A large number of houses from National City to Mira Mesa built during these years still have these types of ceilings in the hallways and bedrooms.
It’s unusual to see them in a kitchen or bathroom though.
Why Some People Complain
- “You can’t clean them very well”
- “They are hard to paint when discolored or stained”
- “They collect a lot of dust”
- “Particles fall off when touched”
- “It’s too hard to repair them”
The Normal Procedure for Replacing Ceilings
The beginning step your trained technician takes is to eliminate every item from the room.
Besides the furniture, this also includes any vent covers, smoke detectors, electrical outlet covers or lighting fixtures.
The whole room will get covered in plastic to capture each particle of the falling texture.
A little moisture is sprayed on the ceiling.
That moisture gets soaked up and the texture gets pliable.
Once the old surface is soft enough, it can be scraped off.
Before long, the original texture is in a pile on the floor.
It’s folded up in the plastic and hauled off.
The existing surface will probably need a little work before it can be painted. It must be even and made smooth first.
The last stages are priming and painting. That’s it.
Get Assistance With Your Project
A portion of the removal and replacing projects that happen are done by small businesses who mostly specialize in these types of jobs.
The other jobs are addressed by drywall and painting services who can do a variety of renovation projects.
Either way you go, you can get your situation handled in areas such as Encanto, Linda Vista or La Playa.
Is This Difficult To Do?
Some parts of this job are easy; other parts are hard and messy.
It isn’t the hardest remodeling job, but it isn’t any fun either.
You might be able to do it yourself. Maybe it’ll seem just right when you’re done.
After thinking about it, most homeowners call in someone to do the job for them.
San Diego Popcorn Ceiling Hole Repair
Fixing holes or performing other repair work to textured ceilings can be difficult.
Getting the repaired part to resemble the initial area can be the difficult step of this job.
Most homeowners have trouble with it when they try to make repairs look good.
What Will it Cost In San Diego?
Curious about what the price might be around here?
Costs can vary, but the one key factor is the amount of time it will take to finish.
And in a few worst-case scenarios, that sprayed texture might have some asbestos in it.
Before 1980, it was not uncommon for builders to use a few products which contained asbestos.
You’ll be able to verify yours if you aren’t certain it’s asbestos-free.
Going through the testing procedure is easy enough for a homeowner to complete.
To get yours tested, you just need to send in a pretty small sample for evaluation.
These kits can be bought at some online specialty stores.
Homeowners who have asbestos will have a removal process which is much more demanding.
