Woodstock Popcorn Ceiling Removal to Sell Your House

popcorn ceiling removalBefore you put your Woodstock home on the market, take a look around and identify any dated or undesirable features in your home. Some things are too much trouble and expense to change, but others can be addressed easily and affordably, which will help your house make a better first impression on potential buyers. One of the biggest no-no’s in the residential real estate world is the infamous popcorn ceiling, also known as an acoustic ceiling. According to the experts at MSN Real Estate, “People just hate them… It gives the house a dated appearance.”

Popcorn ceilings are not only dated, almost universally disliked, and hard to keep clean, but can even pose a health and safety risk! Popcorn ceilings installed in the 1980’s or earlier are likely to contain asbestos, a construction material known to cause cancer and respiratory illnesses. If you have a sample tested and determine that your ceiling contains asbestos, removing it yourself is not a smart option. Removing asbestos-containing material is a job best left to the professionals. Even if your acoustic ceiling does not contain asbestos, the process is so messy and aggravating that many people opt for professional popcorn ceiling removal.
