Popcorn ceiling removal in Lancaster, NY. Living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, Plus Painting

Popcorn Ceiling Removal  We have removed our share of popcorn ceiling texture from ceilings all over western New York.

Basement Ceiling Painters in Akron, NY

Basement Ceiling Painting in Akron, NY   Painting basement ceilings isn't something we do every day, but we have done a few of them. They do require extensive prep, and typically takes a few days. Due to the ceiling being black, lighting can become a problem. Suddenly all of our super bright lights aren't quite as bright anymore. If this is something your looking to have done in your home, empty as much stuff out of the areas to be painted. Also note that in this scenario, it's strongly advisable to paint the walls AFTER the ceiling is sprayed. Due to the poor lighting, we always do at least 2 coats on the ceiling. This ensures uniform coverage. If you would like a quote to paint your basement ceiling, give us a call at 716-697-3560 Interior House Painters in WNY
