Popcorn Ceiling Removal Company
What Is Popcorn Ceiling?
This is a unique type of texture that was commonly used in houses that were built during the 1970s and 1980s. This particular style of texture has rough, small “bumps” covering the whole ceiling.
It was used originally for creating an additional sound barrier in a ceiling. Older houses did not have the same amount of noise reduction design that newer houses do. Therefore, little tricks were created to help to reduce the noise in multi-story houses. At that time, this practice became so commonplace that is appeared in almost all styles of homes.
Modern homes now have significantly improved sound reduction that is built into the drywall features and insulation so popcorn ceilings are not needed.
Although popcorn ceilings were trendy in the past, you rarely see them in modern houses. These days, people who have popcorn ceilings tend to want to have them repaired and removed.
