Looking up with Armstrong Ceilings for the Home Cover up a Popcorn Ceiling Hi, one question I hear from time to time from homeowners is how do I get rid of my ugly popcorn ceiling?

Many homes in the 1960s and ‘70s had a rough texture that looks like “popcorn” or “cottage cheese” applied to the ceilings. This type of ceiling is typically known as a “popcorn” ceiling. This ceiling treatment was used to finish a ceiling or conceal imperfections. Today, the popcorn ceiling look gives a home an outdated appearance. It can even reduce its resale value.
Aside from looking unfashionable, popcorn ceilings are hard to maintain. Their jagged surface traps dust and cobwebs and any attempt at cleaning can loosen the applied texture, making the ceiling look even worse.
Your options? Removing it or covering it up.
Removing a popcorn ceiling is a messy job that takes a lot of time and hard work. There may also be safety concerns in removing the ceiling yourself. Before getting started, make sure to find the best and safest way to remove the popcorn texture and wear protective eyewear and a dust mask.
