Popcorn Ceiling Removal Pittsboro Chatham County

Get smooth ceilings with popcorn ceiling removal in Pittsboro

For decades, popcorn ceilings were the standard choice of contractors doing home construction because it was a fast, inexpensive way to finish ceilings. But if the popcorn texture was ever popular with homeowners, that day has long past. Today people want to see smooth, clean surfaces on their ceilings, so the popcorn has got to go—and in most cases, they call a professional to remove it.

Why most people outsource popcorn ceiling removal

Popcorn ceiling removal is messy, labor-intensive, physically demanding and time-consuming for non-professionals. If done incorrectly, it can require additional repairs to ceilings or cause damage to furnishings. An experienced professional can apply years of expertise and a proven process to get the job done quickly, cleanly, affordably – all without damage to your ceilings, furnishings, or peace of mind.

Pittsboro, North Carolina’s main downtown intersection

With a median income of over $100,000 (twice the state average), that means the housing is also above average. Neighborhoods like Chatham Forest, Potterstone Village, Bobcat Point, The Preserve, and Powell Place set the bar for anyone looking at houses.

Homes with old popcorn style ceilings are not what affluent Pittsboro homeowners want. Pittsboro has long been the main Town of Chatham County and with that came a housing boom from the 1990’s to today.

Popcorn ceilings, which are also known as acoustic ceilings, were especially popular in homes and other buildings between the latter half of the 1950s through the earlier years of the 1980s. Popcorn texture was popular because it was easy to apply and concealed blemishes in the sheetrock.

Imperfections are not what you want when it’s time to remove that old popcorn ceiling. You want to trust someone who has been doing ceiling work for 35+ years. With the average home price in Pittsboro now over $225,000, you can’t afford to live with an old popcorn ceiling or an amateur popcorn ceiling removal contractor.

Cost of Popcorn Ceiling Removal and Repair

According to Home Advisor, the average price for popcorn ceiling removal in the Pittsboro-Chatham County area is between $700 – $2500.

Hiring someone to remove the old popcorn textured ceiling is only the first step. Once that has been done, you will also need to repair and refinish the new flat ceiling.

Making the large, open concept ceilings in Chatham County look seamless and beautiful is not a job for someone new. It takes years of experience to be able to make a ceiling look flawless.

If you want to change the look of your ceiling from rough to smooth and make your home more beautiful, desirable, and livable you’ve come to the right place. Contact us for a quote today.

Our 8 Step Popcorn Removal Asbestos Testing

In older homes, asbestos can be a very serious problem, especially for smaller children or the elderly. If your home was constructed before 1978, it is always wise to test the popcorn texture for asbestos before any ceiling surface is disturbed. Contact CEI Labs Cary NC.


Before any popcorn texture removal work is done, all surrounding electrical circuits will be checked and turned off.

Floor and Furniture

Any and all surfaces directly below the work area will be covered and protected by plastic sheeting or drop cloths. This helps to protect your personal items and makes for easier cleanup.

Ceiling Hydration

The ceiling will be prepped with a hydrating solution. This helps by cutting down on free airborne drywall dust and loosening the textured surface. If the ceiling has a layer of paint over the popcorn this can be very challenging and more labor-intensive.

Float Joints

The texture removal process can sometimes expose flaws in the drywall itself. If this occurs with your home, we will skim/float a layer of drywall joint compound on the ceiling to ensure a proper, smooth finish.


Your ceiling will be sanded with a dustless sander to a smooth finish and pointed up. You will be left with a ready-to-paint surface.

Clean Up

The job isn’t complete until your home has been returned to the state it was in before we arrived. Proper clean up is the hallmark of a true professional. All drywall and popcorn will be cleaned. We treat your home as our own.
