Popcorn ceilings were the fashion in the 1970’s and 80’s…hello 21st century! Maybe your home was built in the 70’s or 80’s and you’re tired of looking at those dirty out-of-date ceilings. It’s one of those “I’ll get around to it” type of jobs that you finally decided to tackle. Many of your neighbors decided to upgrade their home’s look and now it’s your turn. You deserve to come home to a fresh up to date look.

Removing popcorn from your ceilings is a straightforward job, and some people choose to do it themselves. It can be a messy chore, not to mention it’s dirty and time-consuming. This is why your friends and neighbors choose to invest in a professional popcorn removal contractor to complete the task, saving you stress, time, and mess.

The interior painting professionals at Harmony Painting do the whole job starting from removing the old texture, applying the new texture, and finishing it off with a clean coat of paint. When you see the transformation in your ceilings, you’ll be glad you made the right choice…as will others in your home!

What is a Popcorn Ceiling and Why Upgrade?

Popcorn ceilings, sometimes known as an acoustic ceiling were all the rage in the 70’s. They were able to cover a whole range of imperfections in the ceiling. In addition, due to their texture, they helped to cut down on echo in a room.

The Risk of Asbestos

Some popcorn material contained asbestos right up to the late 70’s, when it was banned. It’s not normally dangerous if left alone. Still, if you’re going to upgrade your rooms, you’ll want to hire a professional to make sure your family is kept safe.


Popcorn ceilings get a bad rap because of the lumpy cottage cheese look that tends to discolor over time and is a magnet for dust and spider webs. Newer ceiling textures are smoother and tend to attract less dirt and spider webs. If you need to clean a modern ceiling, it’s a lot easier than with an old popcorn texture.

Ceiling Repairs

Popcorn ceilings are harder to repair and make it look like there was never any damage. In addition, when you want to repaint a popcorn ceiling, you’ll need more than just your average brush or roller to get decent coverage.

Cost to Remove a Popcorn Ceiling

If someone gives you a really low price to do this job, you’ll probably want to be suspicious of the quality and end result. Ask them:

  • How do you ensure that no mess is created?
  • Do you have a guarantee? If so, how long?
  • What texture do you use?
  • What quality of ceiling paint do you use?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • What do other customers say about you?
  • How long have you been doing this type of repair?
  • Is there a lifetime guarantee on materials?

Since there are many variables that go into the pricing of popcorn ceiling removal, it is best to have an expert come out to assess the work and provide a quote.

Are we the cheapest popcorn ceiling removal firm in Denver? Probably not. If you’re after the lowest possible price, there are a lot of low quality companies around Denver.
