||I can't emphasize how important your responses about asbestos are. I'd an inconmsiderate (some would say criminal) boss who employed me on an off the rewcord occupation taking away insulation from his son's household. That "cotton from hell" has given that definitely impaired my everyday living.
Popcorn ceiling on homes developed ahead of 1990 need to be analyzed for asbestos prior to removal. Disrupting asbestos is harmful on your wellness.
If that doesn't get the job done, you have to sand it. which takes a substantial amount of time and will get dust in all places. I have a $6000 drywall sanding vacuum with hepa filters, dust continue to will get in all places, and also the motor needs rebuilt every single pair decades.
December one, 2006 at 10:twelve am· My husband And that i removed the hideous ceiling texture that is referred to as “popcorn” from our full home past November. Considering that then, Now we have had a couple of nails coming out of our drywall in equally our ceiling and one exterior wall. Do you believe this is relevant to the dampness from scraping, retexturing, and repainting the ceiling or really should we attribute it to deal with settling?
Employing a pump sprayer, damp a 5-six foot sq. section of popcorn being thorough not for getting far too much water to the partitions. Hold out a few minutes right before starting out to enable the water to soak to the textured ceiling.
Allow me to just say this: Never try this without having a WetVac! Very messy, Though I’ll admit I didn’t put together very well.
I hope we Dwell to appreciate our new ceiling. We scraped it off moist, and didn’t really need to sand, so with any luck ,, we didn’t breathe an excessive amount of it.
We've two houses we have been planning to remove popcorn ceilings from. Amen! You point out you've got a easy ceiling now. Did you put nearly anything up, like a knock-down texture or did you paint suitable on to the cleaned ceiling by itself? In the event you painted suitable on to your ceiling, What exactly are the techniques? Primer after which you can paint, or perhaps primer? We're seeking simple white ceilings and I want to ensure anything underneath the primer/paint like lumps from tapes (Specially at the perimeters where the ceiling and walls meet up with) and nail holes are as invisible as you possibly can.
The thing is, whenever you remove a blown ceiling like we had just completed. Don't just do you've got to be certain itï¿½s a clean floor. You will need to seal it which has a primer, and afterwards You must paint it. So Of course, Which means you paint every single ceiling surface two times.
April twenty five, 2006 at 11:01 pm· OK, I wrote before. We now have our ceiling completed. I did make an effort to roll on The skinny w&j compound. It likely would get the job done but you continue to should sand. A idea for the individuals like me who prefer to Reduce corners and Assume Instructions are for everyone else! Just after scraping, if you think that you could sand down some residual popcorn,enable it to be easy and paint in excess of it, even if it feels sleek to your touch, it's going to return and Chunk you in the form of curling paint. I attempted several places similar to this and by early morning, the paint we had used seemed like a ceiling from a decaying southern mansion!
would this do the job Together with the ceilings which were textured because they had been used?.... not popcorn but really hideous patterning.
Ours was an Extraordinary scenario. My partner and I scraped just about every inch (ceilings AND partitions, which include closets) of our condo starting off in Could, and finished up in August. Immediately after we’d scraped, sanded, spackled, and painted all of the walls and ceilings, we tackled the kitchen, refinishing the walnut cupboards – which had been painted white – and putting in a wood laminate floor rather than the previous vinyl faux brick.
July 5, 2006 at nine:fifty six pm· at any time attempt to paint a textured ceiling by using a roller. texture comes suitable off. no issue. no mess. tho i like the feel myself & tend not to look after the appears to be like of plain smooth ceilings. which yellow more quickly. & just haven't any design to them. with texture you'll want to increase paint to the combination to seal the coating improved & haven't any issues with flaking & they don’t yellow as quick. tho i’m not an fool for liking texture as stated, i did observe the toilet & kitchen area weren't the 1st rooms completed Therefore the scent of pee will have to not are actually a problem.
Concerning the information from mary about implementing joint compound in excess of the popcorn, I might seriously not propose this method in any way. It'll be very hard to make it smooth and will just take you a lot longer than just scraping the stuff off in the first place. Have confidence in me. I have spent the final week or so scraping off the popcorn and skim-coating most of the partitions and ceilings in my 665 square foot condo.
