  • Why is removing the old popcorn ceiling important?
    Houses built before the 1980s mostly used popcorn ceilings with boards manufactured containing asbestos fibers. These fibers are dangerous when inhaled or ingested and can cause serious health problems such as mesothelioma cancer, a cancer of the pleura, pleural plaques, asbestosis, and asbestos lung cancer. The popcorn ceiling should be removed by professionals who can do the work safely. Herlin Drywall and Renovations is certified to provide popcorn ceiling removal service.
  • Isn’t wallpaper removal a simple DIY activity?
    It may seem so but first, you need to have time and patience to do it yourself. Also, you have to know the process and do it accordingly for a quality wall surface that you can then finish with painting or new wallpaper. Depending on the substrate material on the wall the wallpaper covers, it can be challenging to penetrate, let alone remove the wallpaper. You can leave the job to us.
  • What’s the difference between stucco and plaster?
    Although they are often used interchangeably, plaster and stucco are different in composition. Stucco is used as an exterior cement plaster wall covering only. It is tougher in texture and holds up better than plaster. Plaster is more versatile and can be used both indoor and outdoor. The painting on stucco and plaster also requires different techniques for a fine finish.
  • How do you paint over plaster?
    We allow the plaster to dry out completely before we apply a primer. We use a mist coat made of watered-down emulsion paint that acts as a primer. After 24 hours upon the application of mist, we apply the topcoat.
  • How do you paint over stucco?
    We apply a coat of exterior masonry primer to the stucco using a roller setup with a roller grid for even paint distribution. We let the primer dry before painting. The areas around the doors and windows are brush-painted with a light coat of exterior masonry paint before the rest of the stucco is painted using a large-nap roller. The first coat is let to dry then we add one or more additional coats.
  • What paint is best for plaster? stucco?
    We normally use acrylic paint for plaster. It dries very quickly and can be applied in layers, making it perfect for plaster. Acrylic is a chemical-based paint, which makes it more elastic than water-based paint. For stucco, acrylic latex, water-based paint is best. Being water-based, latex paint is easier to clean up with just soap and water.
  • What preparations are included in your indoor demolition service?
