All About Popcorn Ceiling
Popcorn ceiling AKA acoustic ceilings cost about $1.00 per square foot depending on various factors such as the ceiling height. This type of ceiling design has been applied to ceilings and whether it has asbestos or not, people are interested in using. When I list homes in Austin with popcorn or acoustic ceilings, and I seek for feedback from Realtors who show the home. We will often hear “the buyers did not like the popcorn ceilings”. Often, in a 1970s listing, Austin neighborhoods will boast of in removing the popcorn ceiling. In our Austin MLS right now, there are some comments in listings that say things.
Most of people are down on popcorn ceilings. I look at my own vintage popcorn ceilings 1978 though, and find how perfect they are, and what all the fuss is about anyway. I mean, what is the big deal? Mayumi and I are getting ready to do installation of hardwood floors this coming summer, and I know the popcorn ceilings will reduce drastically the echo noise produced by hard flooring surface. This sound dampening flooring provides a more acoustical experience pleasantly in the home because of being much easier on the ears. This is exactly why it is technically called an “acoustical texture”. The popcorn term came into use because it describes its look.

Yet these ceilings do not emit fumes or vapors that can be inhaled. As long as paint covered them, you are not going to be disturbed and you can breathe without the dust.
