Popcorn Ceiling Painting, Kitchen Ceiling Painting in East Amherst NY


Ceiling Painters in Amherst, NY

Painting popcorn ceilings is a lot more involved than painting smooth ceilings. The reason for this is  when you roll a popcorn ceiling, it rains popcorn onto everything. This is especially true if the ceiling has never been painted. Also, painting popcorn ceilings typically require about 50% more paint, and 50% more time to complete than traditional ceilings due to both the absorption rates of of the texture, as well as the delay between cutting in the ceiling and rolling the ceiling.

We prefer to cut in the ceiling first, and then once that is complete, we will stop for 30-60 minutes until the cut in line is dry. The reason for this is simple, paint saturates the texture, and when you roll over it with a wet roller, it will peal the popcorn off the ceiling. To avoid that problem (headache) we will wait for the first part of the painting to be completely dry prior to moving to the next step - rolling the ceiling.
