Removing popcorn ceilings in Matthews may seem like an easy task, but it is quite time-consuming serious work. Whether a homeowner or contractor tackles the chore and does not properly scrape the popcorn bumps, ceilings are easily damaged, requiring extra patching which may not be budgeted for.
Thought popcorn ceilings in Matthews used to be very popular back in the '60s through the '90s, having popcorn ceilings has become obsolete and undesired in the modern world. Whether the popcorn ceiling fad was because homeowners thought it would provide a sound barrier, or because they thought it gave rooms a more “homey” appearance, homeowners are now searching for local contractors to scrape away and remove the popcorn on their ceilings.
Popcorn Ceiling Removal Process
- Prepare the room: After removing the furniture and any light fixtures or ceiling fan, Zelaya Jr Painting will place plastic drop sheets to cover your flooring and walls. Rather than using canvas drop sheets, plastic sheets will not allow for any water to soak through and damage your floors.
- Soften the popcorn: Before doing any scraping, the popcorn ceiling will be sprayed with a safe but effective mixture to soften the popcorn, making it easier to scrape and remove. However, if the ceiling is painted, dry-scraping will be needed. Though a more complex process, Zelaya Jr Painting professionals know how to get the job done right.
- Sealing and sanding: Once the popcorn has been scraped off, the ceiling will be sealed with joint compound to prepare for sanding. Once the seal dries, the sanding process begins to leave the ceiling with a smooth, seamless finish.
- Finishing touches: Once Zelaya Jr Painting has finished removing the popcorn from the ceiling, our skilled painters will paint your ceiling with whichever color and finish you desire, leaving your ceiling looking brand new and modern.

★★★★★ - "What a great job Frank Zelaya and his crew did on our recent paint job. They were extremely professional and prompt in getting the job completed. They were very detailed and meticulous in their work. They were careful in working around all contents and their clean-up was great, leaving our house beautiful upon completion. All of the above and at a reasonable price. Would recommend Zelaya Painting highly and will use them on any future painting needs we have."
The Fosters in Stanfield, NC2022-12-02
★★★★★ - "These guys are just incredible. Prompt, so respectful, excellent communication, desire to please and amazing work ethic from everyone. A year ago they scraped every square inch of popcorn ceiling from our 3700 sq ft house. It was hazmat professionally done. They covered all of our floors and walls with plastic to protect them from the mess. They certainly know what they are doing. Also they cleaned the entire house upon completion. Thank you guys! But seriously...scraping, sanding and painting 3700 square feet!!! It was no small feat!! Wow. Incredible job. A year later we called Franklin and his team out to paint two spaces in our home including the formal living room and the informal living/stairway. It was quite a bit of painting and they somehow got it all done in ONE DAY. It was immaculate. Beautifully done. Cannot wait to call them again for more projects. Very fair pricing. Big fan."

★★★★★ - "Franklin and his crew did some reconstruction on our deck and then stained it. They did an absolutely beautiful job. I could not have been more pleased. When they were finished they cleaned everything up and put everything away. The interior of our home needs some painting and I want Franklin to do it. He is also a very kind and humble person. Glad I found him."
Renae B., Deck Staining in Charlotte, NC2022-01-24
★★★★★ - "Franklin was great. He was very on the ball. The quote was very reasonable for both ceiling popcorn removal and painting with an oil-based primer to remove the smoke smell. The final product looks great. He even came back at no charge to fix an issue that was our fault. He had both a very reasonable price and very professional service. Would highly recommend."
★★★★★ - "I have used the same painter for about 5 years and even had him do work for my kids and some neighbors. I was definitely using the wrong painter. Zelaya, Jr. is the right painter, did a fantastic job, great clean up, and every one of the crew was professional and respectful of our house and us. They are the painting crew I will use from now on."

★★★★★ - "In December 2018 Frank and his team painted the entire interior of my 2200 sq ft 70's ranch home. They prepped the trim and walls everywhere (everything looked well worn before they began) and the result was absolutely beautiful. He has a sizeable crew and they did all of this in 2.5 days. Cost was a bit better than 2 others who would have taken longer. Add to this that everyone was really pleasant, always greeting me with a smile. Excellent experience."
