Popcorn Ceiling Repair?
It is not uncommon to find popcorn ceilings in newly designed and in manufactured homes. Popcorn ceilings are a specific type of textured ceiling that offers both ceiling beauty and contrast to interior home designs. Roof leaks or accidents can generate the need for homeowners to repair popcorn ceilings. There are several considerations to keep in mind when making this type of home repair. Assess the Amount of Ceiling Damage The first step to popcorn ceiling repair is to assess the amount of damage done. For small sections, it is possible for home owners to make the repairs themselves without hiring an outside contractor. Large sections of damage or extensive damage may require using a contractor to make the repairs. Spraying the Ceiling Area Staining is often a problem with popcorn ceilings. Household dust may collect in the texture. Sweeping the ceiling to rid it of dust can cause the ceiling to stain. Actual pieces of the texture may brush off of the ceiling to leave unsightly sections. Spraying the sections with additional popcorn ceiling compounds will often correct the damage and alleviate the problem. Most large hardware stores and paint stores stock the popcorn ceiling compound in spray cans. Cutting and Replacing the Ceiling Area It might be necessary to cut out sections of the popcorn ceiling that have extensive damage. This type of ceiling repair is usually done best by an outside contractor. Home owner's insurance may cover part or all of the cost of the repair, depending on the cause of the damage. Make certain to ask the contractor if the work is guaranteed. Get the project cost estimate and guarantee in writing before the repair project begins. Underlying Cause of Damage Determine the underlying cause of damage to the ceiling. It is important for the home owner to address and fix whatever caused the initial damage. Repeated or continued damage can occur if the initial cause of damage is not ascertained and corrected. Home owners will find themselves with continued or repeated damage and repair bills. For example, if the roof leaks and causes ceiling damage the leak needs to be repaired. Otherwise, the next rainfall will create new damage to the repaired ceiling.

How to Repair a Damaged Popcorn Ceiling?
Popcorn ceilings can be beautiful, however if damaged, the repair can be difficult. It is a method of putting acoustical advantages on the ceiling, yet is easy to apply and relatively cost effective. If you are repairing a hole in the ceiling, the hole needs repair before attempting to repair popcorn ceiling texture. When the damage has occurred from a water leak, the leak needs to be repaired before the ceiling. Ensure there is no other damage created from the leak, such as drywall or sheetrock that is soaked. If so, replace the damaged areas before repairing the ceiling. Create a smooth area around the damaged ceiling by sanding it smooth and removing the popcorn texture that already exists. Use a good primer coat before beginning to repair popcorn ceiling texture, otherwise the new coat of texture may not adhere to the ceiling. Compare the texture to make a match between the old and the new texture. A texture that is placed into paint is the best way to repair popcorn texture. Avoid using the spray on product. Using the paint-on texture method allows control of the product, in terms of the size and concentration needed. Purchase fine, medium or a coarser-grade to blend with your pre-existing ceiling texture. As you are painting the areas that are in need of repair, ensure you coat the areas that aren't in need as well to coat the ceiling uniformly. Before painting on the texture, an extra piece of wood or drywall can be painted with the paint-texture mixture to determine the balance of paint vs. popcorn. Applying the texture with a roller is great for the majority of areas. When the repair spot is too close to a wall, a brush of edging tool can get into the areas the roller is too large for. Roll once across the damaged area and allow to dry. Make a second or third pass through the area, until the spot matches the texture on the rest of the ceiling. Dry thoroughly before vacuuming ceiling or cob-webbing the area.
