DLA Team understands how important the ‘fifth wall’ is. Whether you are trying to decide a ceiling finish or you need repair, we can help from start to finish – or just a step in between:
Removal of a textured ceiling, or what is commonly referred to as ‘popcorn,’ often becomes more of a renovation job than a home owner anticipates. It is very time consuming and messy – especially when you don’t have the expertise or proper tools. There are numerous factors to consider and understand when removing your popcorn ceiling texture:
You will require special equipment – respirators, eye protection, scaffolding or ladders, and so on.
Removal is even more difficult if your ceiling has been painted since the original spray.
Doing the removal yourself may increase the cost of your project. Because homeowner’s lack the technique and special industrial equipment, often there is damage to the drywall (or sometimes other parts of your home – furniture, walls, floor) during the removal process that will need to be repaired before a new texture can be applied.
Homeowners do not have the expertise to know if the ceiling insulation or drywall will need replacing. Therefore, the removal process may have been quicker by knowing if large pieces of the ceiling needed to be replaced or accessed.
When considering popcorn ceiling removal, you should let the professionals handle it. DLA Team
has over 10 years of experience with popcorn ceilings and we know how to make the removal process efficient, clean and headache free.
Reasons to Remove a Popcorn Ceiling
1. Updated ceilings instantly add value to your property.
2. Smooth ceiling texture add natural light to your living space.
3. The flat surface ceilings do not trap allergens and dust and can be cleaned if needed. Popcorn ceilings are associated with aggravating asthma symptoms.
4. Smooth ceilings texture finishes (knockdown, orange peel, etc.) have greater visual appeal than textured ceiling.
Drywall Installation Calgary, Airdrie & Canmore
When it comes to a high quality ceiling, proper preparation is key – any drywall imperfections will show through the textured ceiling. This is not only important for the appearance of the ceiling from the moment the work is complete, but also for longevity of the work. For example, if repairs to the drywall are insufficient, that can cause cracking to the texture finish later on.

Textured Ceilings Calgary, Airdrie & Canmore
The knockdown finish is our premium product. Knockdown is very visually pleasing as it light and smooth in appearance, and actually adds height to a room. Being the top texture choice, this adds maximum value to your home.
Splatter Texture (Orange Peel)
Splatter texture is the same as knockdown, but not smoothed after being applied. Therefore, the finished product is in between popcorn and knockdown. Splatter texture hides the least amount of imperfections – which may be an important consideration for your needs.
Regular Texture (Popcorn)
This is a base standard texture, most commonly chosen for rental properties or to match existing texture. It has a heavy finish, therefore visually adding ‘weight’ to the room. The positive of this texture is it hides the most imperfections.
This style is a flat ceiling, similar to a wall, so there is no texture. We are receiving more requests for this. However, this style is usually the choice for large common areas in homes over 3,000 square feet.
An elegant touch to enhance knock down texture, borders and cove-in corners can add extra dimension to your room. Borders are most often chosen for dining room, living rooms, and master-bedrooms. This style is often complemented with crown molding.
Custom Hand Designs
This texture is most common in areas such as dens, living rooms, and dining rooms. We have customized many different ceiling styles over the last 10 years – smoked, swirls, half moon, and icicles.
