Masking and Covering

We start by thoroughly masking and covering your entire home to protect floors, furniture, and other surfaces from dust and debris. We go the extra mile to ensure a clean and contained work area.


Removing Popcorn Texture

Next, we remove and scrape off all the popcorn texture from your ceilings. Our team uses specialized tools and techniques to efficiently and safely eliminate outdated texture. After removing the popcorn texture, we inspect and repair the existing drywall.


Repairing Drywall

After removing the popcorn texture, we inspect and repair the existing drywall. This step involves fixing any damage and ensuring a smooth, even surface for the next stages.


Skim Coating and Sanding

We apply a skim coat of drywall joint compound to the ceilings, creating a flawless base. Once the compound is dry, we sand out any imperfections to achieve a perfectly smooth finish.


Texturing, Priming, and Painting

If desired, we apply a light texture to the ceilings. Then, we prime the ceilings using an oil-based primer/sealer to ensure excellent paint adhesion. Finally, we paint the ceilings with two coats of high-quality paint for a durable and beautiful finish.


Final Cleanup

We conclude by cleaning all trash, dust, and debris from the workspace. Our thorough cleanup process ensures your home is left spotless and your new ceilings are ready to enjoy.
