The owner of this condo in Burnaby, like many others, was suffering from cracks that appeared in the centre and along the edges of the concrete ceiling. Frustrated after many years of looking at the ugly cracked ceiling, she decided to do something about it. She was told by other contractors that “nothing could be done” about the crack problem other than filling the crack with silicone caulking which was even uglier than the crack itself. Frustrated, the owner contacted us at RemoveCeilingTexture.com.
This condo came with a typical concrete ceiling that was sprayed with coarse popcorn texture by the original builder. We removed the coarse texture, ground the ceiling all the way down to the source of the crack, patched the crack so that it wouldn’t come back in the future and finished the ceiling to a very smooth, flat and beautiful finish. The way it should have been done in the first place. We also painted the ceiling and the walls for this nice lady. Now, she has a fresh, smooth ceiling in her home and she can breathe easier without all the dust and allergens getting trapped in the popcorn texture.

The leaky roof in this Burnaby-North home was casing major headaches for the owners. Their leaky roof problem in previous years, had eventually traveled down into their ceiling and started turning their ceiling texture into something that looked like it belonged in a horror movie.
Remember, the risks associated with a leak in your roof are not limited to an ugly stain on the ceiling, or some irregular looking ceiling texture. Leaky roofs are one of the major contributors to the development of mold and mildew inside wall and ceiling cavities that can lead to respiratory illnesses and other health complications in your family.
A Leaky roof and subsequent damaged ceilings can cost a fortune
The family had contacted other outfits that claimed they could fix the ceiling, but all these other outfits ended up suggesting removal of the entire ceiling or drywalling on top of the existing ceiling. Both those options were impractical and very expensive with some quote coming in at $4000.
Now if you have just paid thousands of dollars to replace your leaky roof, the last thing you want to be doing is to spend another few thousand to get the damaged ceilings back to normal. And as suggested in this GlobalBC story, a leaky roof can cost a homeowner/landlord a lot of money.
