Dove Ceilings is unlike any other drywall company out there! They have a very special procedure that will have your ceiling looking brand new and more beautiful than you can imagine! For a better understanding of the actual procedure, read below.

Initial Set-up

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Floor Sheeting

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

All floors are enveloped in plastic. Wood flooring is double wrapped to provide a sound vapor barrier.

Wall Sheeting

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

All walls are enveloped in plastic that is in turn fastened with tape to the floor plastic. Certain wall coverings, such as wallpaper, and paper borders are exposed to damage. Please consult your estimator to determine if your wall coverings are subject to damage.

Fixtures

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

To insure a quality job, all ceiling fixtures are taken down by the crew prior to the removal of your acoustic ceilings. Some ceiling fixtures cannot be removed by your crew. These fixtures will include: heavy chandeliers, ceiling fans, etc.

Old Ceilings Removal

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Have your ceilings been previously removed by another contractor? Do you see tape joints and areas that were not prepared properly? Dove Ceilings can make your ceiling look beautiful!

Repairs

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Your acoustic texture hides many flaws on the surface of your ceiling. Most of these flaws are resurfaced at no additional cost before the crew gives you the new textured look. When areas are exposed that need repair and are considered over and above the normal resurfacing, you will be charged accordingly.

Application of New Ceiling Material

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Conventional textures were developed with the West Coast housing boom. This boom occurred during the 1970's and 1980's and these techniques were produced for the purpose of speed. Of these, the "orange peel" and "knockdown" textures were the most common. These two textures are applied with pneumatic air driven equipment and are most commonly found in tract homes. A custom hand produced texture, known as skip-trowel, is common to high end housing and is also used by Dove Ceilings. Consult your estimator for additional information.

Clean-up & Disposal

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Each home is enveloped in plastic. The plastic provides a barrier that separates the work environment from your home environment. When the work crew removes this envelope, the bag of debris is hauled to a designated EPA disposal site. The debris is never disposed of in household receptacles or landfills not designed to accommodate acoustic material.

The Finished Texture

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
