      They look bad, they collect dirt, they're nearly impossible to repair and match the pattern, and a lot of them contain asbestos.

      All of this. Also my mom would lose her shit when we would throw stuff at rge ceiling to make the popcorn fall.

      impossible to clean, ugly, very difficult to remove, difficult to paint

      nothing like looking up to cobwebs and dust suspended above your bed.

      I painted a popcorn ceiling and the whole thing developed these big wrinkles and nearly came dowin. At least it was easy to remove. Drywall underneath wasn’t painted.

      You have a low ceiling or ductwork and you scrape your knuckles across it, I guarantee you'll understand why. Also, getting the bloodstains off it is a PITA.

      Doesnt know dick

      Yeah you gotta be careful putting that first coat of paint on because it will absorb the moisture from the latex paint and come loose. Definitely don't want to roll back over it more than once until it fully dries.

      You spray it you dont roll it dumbass

    They were never popular, just cheap. Tract homes all came with them, because it was cheap to spray that crap than to pay a craftsman to get a smooth finish. Smooth ceilings were always preferred by those that could afford them.

    Because people don't have 14' ceilings that echo anymore. With standard houses having 8' ceilings it just looks too busy.

      Also this. Its fine for vaulted ceilings but any normal height 8' ceilings you do not want a popcorn texture on.

    dude my dad has made prob 100k from taking that shit off and replacing it
    also plasturing the smooth stuff

    no mansion has popcorn lol
    in fact the really high end was do 100 percent flat no indents at all

    but its easy to take off
    but its sorta illegal cause you need hazmat by law
    but mexicans dont care
    also the people who hire them also dont

    its super easy to take off
    ive done it working with my dad before alot

    you spray water on it mist it till its wett
    then you just screape it off
    its dusty as hell and you need to seal the room with plastic so its not a cloud the wetter the better

    ccompound mix to make smooth is hard asf lol
    it takes years of practice

      imagine carryng a 3 pound weight above your head for 10 12 hours
      thats what drywall plastering jobs is
      in fact mexicans respect my dad because mexicans dont actually do drywall plastering as much,

      my father was actually taught by the jahoves witnesses
      because they use to dominate the construction industry it built vegas

      also houses today have 12 20 foot ceeling you use a tool taper called a bazooka to tape the drywall together
      that thing is 30 40 pounds

      again for 12 hours

      again
      my father is always employed
      in fact know he just does patches
      pro bono cash and he makes bank

      its toxic job for you lungs
      but if you can take it
      its easily a few k a week
      also agian most mexicans dont do this
      its too hard lol
      most mexicans paint landscape
      very few are actually framers and drywall plasterers
      these jobs have very high demand
      even spraying that old shit on garages is still a thing,

      any real estate guys know plaster guys are gold

      in fact a lot of the great drywall plaster guys are easter euro lol
      rich fricking immigrants who cant speak english lol

      Why the frick did you split this into 4 different posts?

        ESL gays all type like lit students trying to write bad prose.

        They look bad, they collect dirt, they're nearly impossible to repair and match the pattern, and a lot of them contain asbestos.

        Don't forget wasting ages scraping the crap off if you need to reno because someone didn't want to put effort into the walls/ceiling looking good.
