Warning: There is a chance that popcorn ceilings can contain asbestos. If there is any doubt you should use a asbestos services professional to test for it.
This is the first of three posts on the removal of the popcorn ceiling in the library, what used to be a formal dinning room (who needs them).
Other posts for the process:
- Library Popcorn Ceiling Removal – Scraping and Removal
- Library Popcorn Ceiling Removal – Spraying Texture
I easily spent an hour and a half doing the preparation for the scraping and re-texturing of the ceiling.
Preparation Tools and Supplies:
- 200 x 12 foot roll of 1 mil painter’s plastic
- staple gun
- duct tape
- painter’s tape
The ceilings had the heavy popcorn texture that was popular in the 70s and 80s.
