Hi, I'm purchasing a house in Northeast Philadelphia. It has popcorn ceilings on both levels including the walls leading to the lower level. I'd like to get the popcorn ceiling removed. I've talked to the sellers and it was installed after asbestos was being used. I'm looking to get it professionally done as I know it is an intense project (and I'm not sure the condition of the ceilings underneath it). Does anyone know of a contractor to refer me to in this area? Or any idea of how much it would cost to remove the popcorn ceiling? Thank you

You need to go to a local paint store and get some names of contractors from them. They have a good idea of who does good work as often times they see them every day. Get three bids on the job to be sure you are getting a fair price.
