Get a Contractor or Do It Yourself…
1. DIY Popcorn Ceiling Removal
2. Hiring a contractor to remove your popcorn ceilings.
The driver for that decision is often based on price, so what is the cost of popcorn ceiling removal?Lets use an example of a 1500 sf home.
If you want to do it yourself anticipate:
$100 for plastic and tape
$20 for sheetrock joint compound to repair and skim coat
$200 for sheetrock joint compound if you want to retexture with orange peel, knock down, or other.
$175 for primer, you will need to prime the ceiling before you paint
$300 for paint depending on the paint manufacturer of course
$30 for some good scrapers/mud knives to both remove the popcorn with, and skim-coat. I recommend buying a 12 inch and a six inch knife.
And you are going to need:
100 man hours at a minimum
Ladders of varying height
A pump sprayer or soft spraying hose attachment
A compressor and hopper for some textures
Painting tools – buckets, rollers, brushes OR A SPRAY RIG (RECOMMENDED)
Now lets say you want to hire a contractor.
The price for just popcorn removal is usually around $.85 per square foot, But you will still need to patch, skim-coat or texture, prime and paint.
The price for what I call a full service popcorn removal will be around $2.00 to $2.50 per square foot. This will include Removal, Patch, Retexture or Skim Coat, Prime and Paint.
