Important Details to Consider Before Installation
- If your house was built prior to 1970, your popcorn ceiling may contain asbestos. Commercial popcorn ceilings from this time typically contained asbestos, so any house from this period with a popcorn ceiling likely contains the contaminant. Paint stores stock kits for detecting asbestos in homes. If you find that your popcorn ceiling contains asbestos, hire a professional to remove it.
- Popcorn ceilings can be unstable. An unstable popcorn ceiling would be unable to support and hold ceiling tiles in place. To determine whether your popcorn ceiling is strong enough to hold ceiling tiles, press on it firmly with a finger. If the ceiling crumbles and falls apart, you will need to remove it instead of covering it. Popcorn ceiling surfaces that do not crumble at your touch should be strong enough to cover.
