Do You Have the Dreadful Popcorn Ceiling?

Whether your ceilings have cracks, water stains, or the dreaded popcorn ceiling, Klappenberger & Son on can help.  We are your full-service painting and handyman company for popcorn ceiling removal and painting.

Underneath the textured or popcorn ceiling is usually just the first of three coats of spackle.  Finishing drywall properly has three spackle applications

  1. Tapping
  2. Blocking
  3. Skimming

Popcorn ceilings and textured ceiling only receive tapping.   Therefore, after removing the texture, it will require at least two more passes.   However, it is often necessary to apply a skim coat across the entire ceiling to smooth any rough surfaces.

I wanted my older house to feel like it was fresh and new but retain the colonial charm. Klappenberger & Son far exceeded my expectations on making it feel that way. In addition, the quality of the work is fantastic. The crew had a good division of labor and skillsets to do everything I needed. I could not give a higher recommendation for Klappenberger, and will definitely use them again.
