The opinions that various people would end up having regarding popcorn ceilings and the like can be quite mixed and difficult to understand in some way, shape or form. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that there are those that feel like popcorn ceilings are offensive from an aesthetic point of view, but yet others will attempt to claim that these are the best types of ceilings that you can ever add to your home at any given point in time.
We are of the opinion that popcorn ceiling does in fact have its fair share of advantages. One of the most pertinent of these benefits is that a water damaged popcorn ceiling generally tends to be somewhat easier to deal with and potentially repair outright than a ceiling that is made of flat slabs of concrete. You will have to pay less for insurance for mold and water if you have a popcorn ceiling due to the simple fact that you can repair it using a specific type of DIY methodology that we are about to get into shortly.
The basic premise behind repairing water damaged popcorn ceilings involves getting rid of that portion and adding a new patch of popcorn ceiling in its place. You can buy popcorn ceilings in patches instead of the whole thing, and that means that you can plug holes rather quickly as long as you have fixed the leak that caused the water damage in the first place. Make sure that the leak has been fixed and after that is done you can move forward with your popcorn ceiling repair.
