Tips for Maintaining the Value of Your Home: Popcorn Ceilings

Few structural elements date a house more than popcorn ceilings. If your home was built before 1979, the chances are very good that your popcorn ceiling contains asbestos. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find asbestos in acoustic ceilings installed in the 1980s because existing inventories were exempt from the 1978 ban.

So consult a professional to ditch the dated look and add value to your home. Removing a popcorn ceiling may not seem like a big change but one of the keys for adding value to your home is to repair, replace or remove anything that could turn buyers away.
