Remove & Texture

Many homeowners today are choosing to have their acoustic ceilings removed and textured for a more updated look. This process is more costly than a seal and respray and generally will take about two days to complete.

The crew will mask off the entire area, completely covering and protecting your walls, floors and contents. After lightly spraying the ceiling with water, we will scrape off the acoustic from your ceilings. Once the acoustic has been removed, we will repair any tape seams and any gouges from the removal process, and put a coat of topping mud on all the tape seams and nail holes. Once this process is complete, your ceilings will be textured. Acoustical Drywall Services will go over the options for the texture to best suit your needs. The ceilings are then ready for paint.

It is important to know that if Acoustical Drywall Services does not do the painting of the newly textured ceilings that you must do additional preparation prior to painting. We would be happy to go over these preparations with you.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Acoustical Drywall Services is NOT licensed to remove acoustic ceilings containing Asbestos. Please see our What About Asbestos? page for information on Asbestos

 

 

Seal & Respray
So, how do we do it?

Before anything is covered and protected we move any small breakable items out of harms way. Next we move any furniture around so that the masking operation will run smoothly. Now, we are ready to get to work by covering the walls and floors. We use a combination of paper and plastic to ensure that nothing is left uncovered. We also drop any light fixtures, ceiling fans and heat registers so that nothing goes unnoticed.

After everything is properly covered, we pay close attention to any specialized problems that your ceiling might have, such as replacing damaged sheetrock, repairing blistered tape seams or just plugging holes from old ceiling hooks. Once any problems have been taken care of we are ready to go after all the years of dirt, grime, cobwebs and dust that have stuck like glue to your acoustic ceilings.

The ceiling is sprayed with a synthetic oil-based sealer. This process encapsulates the old material, covering all of the grime, dirt and most water and nicotine stains. This is a very important process that not all Contractors do. The newly sealed material will be the base of your new white, clean ceiling.

After the sealer is dry we apply a new coat of non-asbestos acoustic ceiling texture. This will leave you with a nice, full, even coat of texture and give your ceilings the appearance of a brand new ceiling.

Feel free to contact us by e-mail, phone or fax at any time to discuss your needs. If you have any questions, comments or would like to schedule an estimate, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

About Asbestos

Asbestos is a mineral fiber. It was present in many products used in home construction, including acoustic ceilings.

The use of asbestos in ceilings was banned in 1977. If your home was built prior to 1977, there is a good chance that your ceilings contain asbestos.

Following are the EPA guidlines for obtaining a sample and testing for asbestos.

You can't tell whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it, unless it is labeled. If in doubt, treat the material as if it contains asbestos or have it sampled and analyzed by a qualified professional. A professional should take samples for analysis, since a professional knows what to look for, and because there may be increased health risk if fibers are released. In fact, if done incorrectly, sampling can be more hazardous than leaving the material alone. Taking samples yourself is not recommended. If you nevertheless choose to take the samples yourself, take care not to release asbestos fibers into the air or onto yourself. Material that is in good condition and wll not be disturbed (by remodeling, for example) should be left alone. Only material that is damaged or will be disturbed should be sampled. Anyone who samples asbestos-containing materials should have as much information as possible on the handling of asbestos before sampling, and at a minimum, should observe the following procedures:

  • Make sure no one else is in the room when sampling is done.
  • Wear disposable gloves or wash hands after sampling.
  • Shut down any heating or cooling systems to minimize the spread of any released fibers.
  • Do not disturb the material any more than is needed to take a small sample.
  • Place a plastic sheet on the floor below the area to be sampled.
  • Wet the material using a fine mist of water containing a few drops of detergent before taking the sample. The water/detergent mist will reduce the release of asbestos fibers.
  • Carefully cut a piece from the entire depth of the material using, for example, a small knife, corer, or other sharp object. Place the samll piece into a clean container (for example, a 35 mm film canister, small glass or plastic vial, or high quality resealable plastic bag).
  • Tightly seal the container after the sample is in it.
  • Carefully dispose of the plastic sheet. Use a damp paper towel to clean up any material on the outside of the container or around the area sampled. Dispose of asbestos materials according to state and local procedures.
  • Label the container with an identification number and clearly state when and where the sample was taken.
  • Patch the sampled area with the smallest possible piece of duct tape to prevent fiber release.
  • Sent the sample to an EPA-approved laboratory for analysis. The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has a list of these laboratories. You can get this list form the Laboratory Accreditation Administration, NIST, Gaithersburg, MD 20899 (telephone 301-975-4016). Your state or local health department may also be able to help.

    The above information was obtained from the Environmental Protection Agency's website. For more detailed information on Asbestos in Your Home go to www.epa.gov and search for asbestos.

    Once you have the results of the asbestos testing you can determine whether you want to have your ceilings sealed and reprayed (thereby encapsulating asbestos fibers) or removed by a licensed abatement contractor.
