WHY YOU SHOUld Remove Your popcorn Ceilings

Having popcorn ceilings was a popular trend in the ’50s but now it often deters potential buyers from your home. Even though you may have modern furnishings and appliances, the popcorn ceilings will be the first thing that catches your eye when you walk into a room, making your home look outdated and visually unappealing. Removing these dated ceilings and replacing them with a flat, sleek-looking ceiling can increase the overall value of your home. Popcorn ceilings are also quite challenging to maintain and clean since it’s not recommended that you wash or wipe them. The only way to keep up a clean look to your ceilings is by painting them, which is something many homeowners hold off on. Because these once-popular ceilings date back decades, there is a high risk of them containing asbestos – which can be hazardous to your family’s health. Keep your family and loved ones safe with MR Painting. Whether you’re looking to give your home’s interior a facelift or remodeling it to give a more modernized look for when you put it on the market, we are here to ensure it’s done in a safe and clean manner.
