Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Popcorn Ceiling Removal Service

At Katana Renovations, we offer a comprehensive popcorn ceiling removal service. We can upgrade these ceilings to make modern, smooth ceilings that will be stunning.

What are Popcorn Ceilings?

“Popcorn ceilings”, also known as stucco ceilings, are textured ceilings found in homes and older buildings. They are called “popcorn” ceilings because their look resembles popped popcorn. They were very popular for affordability and quick installation, however, they fell out of favour due to their dated appearance and potential health concerns due to asbestos. Moreover, they lower the value of your home, make the room appear darker, and trap dust and allergens, impacting indoor air quality.

The Process


We prep and then remove the popcorn-textured ceiling. This process entails creating the foundation for the incoming improvements.

Plaster and Sanding

Following the removal of the texture, We apply a minimum of two coats of plaster, with sanding in between. Each coat requires roughly 24 hours of drying time before reapplying

Prime and Paint

As the final step in your ceiling makeover, we will prime and paint the ceilings in only premium products.

Clean Up 

Once complete, we will clear debris, and vacuum your home. And then, we’ll guide you through to make sure your makeover meets your expectations.
