Removing a Popcorn Ceiling

In this video, Sherry is removing a popcorn ceiling that has been sprayed with a garden sprayer. The solution that is sprayed on, is a combination of warm water and a bit of dish washing soap.  


Protection: furniture, lighting, windows and doorways are covered with 1 mil plastic to protect from water and dust. Floors are covered 100% with 6 mil plastic (which is a very thick plastic), so that water does not penetrate. 

Skimcoating

Skimcoating: we often have customers ask us if we do skimcoating and/or what skimcoating actually is. Skimcoating is a technique used to make a very rough wall or ceiling smooth. This task if done by evenly applying joint compound, with either a Trowel or Taping Knife. In some cases, multiple coats (along with sanding), are nessecery to achieve a smooth-paintable surface. 


In this video, Anthony demonstrates the process.
