Popcorn Ceiling Removal: DIY Friendly Removal Tips for Popcorn and Other Ceiling & Wall Textures!

      Popcorn and other ceiling and wall textures have become the unwanted outdated surface in homes today. All though there are what seems like a lot of different textures out there they are commonly all made from the same types of materials and require the same type of removal method. Here are some examples of different terminology for drywall/sheetrock/gypsum board textures. 

Spray & Roll On Textures
  • Splatter knockdown
  • Orange Peel
  • Popcorn
  • Acoustic 
  • Stipple
Hand Applied Textures
  • Skip Trowel
  • Hawk and Trowel
  • Santa-Fe Texture
  • Double Skip
  • Swirl
  • Crows-foot stomp
  • Rosebud stomp
  • Stomp knockdown
      And the one thing that makes all of these textures difficult to remove is paint. Once that texture has been painted which is often the case especially when dealing with an older home it increases the hassle of removal exponentially! Removal methods in the past have always required ether dry scraping texture off which causes a ton of dust and mess, skim coating over textures, or replacing drywall, people have even put a second layer of drywall up to avoid dealing with their drywall textures! All of these methods normally call for a contractor and more money than you want spend on a home improvement project.
