I had Bryan's Handyman Service quote me a price to scrape the popcorn ceilings off of a dining room, living room, foyer, and hallway. They told me that it was be cheaper and come out better by sheet rocking over the existing popcorn ceiling using the thinnest sheetrock available. The entire process took about a week and a half and that included sheetrocking, taping, mudding, sanding, priming, painting, and replacing some moulding. They originally quoted the work as 3 days but when it was apparent that we would go over that timeframe they helped me get the house back together for a party that we were having over the weekend. Bryan sent some guys out to clean up and replace the recessed lighting that had to come down. All in all they did a fantastic job, the ceiling looks great and I will be using them again in the near future to replace 2 custom sized entry doors when they arrive.
