Not only do we provide acoustic ceiling removal at System 1, we also provide interior and exterior painting services.
The process for painting is exactly the same as it is for acoustic (popcorn) ceiling removal with one exception: prior to laying down plastic, we scrape the corners to clean up any residual texture and we put silicon caulking around the entire perimeter between the wall and the ceiling. This creates a smooth transition between the wall and the ceiling so it looks like you never had an acoustic ceiling. (In some cases, we may need to do a minor sanding prior to painting)
We use two state-of-the-art Greyco Airless spray machines to apply primer and then paint. Because we spray, the paint goes on much thicker, giving your home more protection. “It’s like we put up three coats of primer and three coats of paint,” System 1 President Richard McKinnon said.
Because we use a fine spray machine, there’s no brush marks or roller marks. In many homes, it’s easy to tell the difference between someone who sprayed their home and someone who painted it with brushes and rollers. When you choose System 1 to paint your home, you better protect your home and get a better final product.
“We’re not a run of the mill painting company,” Richard said, “our focus is precision.” Because we were based on acoustic ceiling removal and taping, we’re better than most painting companies because we’re better at taping. Taping is the “bread and butter” of painting and most painting companies are not as good as we are. When we take the tape off, we create a “perfect laser line” around the perimeter of the home. We use our state-of-the-art method of taping for popcorn ceiling removal and brought that into our painting. No company is as good as us when it comes to painting.
“Painting is a profession that you can be very good at,” Richard said. It’s the knowledge of knowing the right product, how to apply them, timing, how long to do something, the way to sand it, and the way to apply the paint that makes a great painter.
Richard frequently is inviting back to his customers homes when it’s time to repaint because of their exceptional service. “I see the work we did back then and it was fantastic.”
System 1 didn’t always provide painting services, but they were asked so often by so many people they really had no choice but to make their customers happy. “Painting is a service we can provide for our customers that leaves them without having to search for somebody else,” Richard said.
“(Acoustic Ceiling Removal and Painting ) is not something our customers look forward to doing. They don’t look forward to the decision making. They’re spending so much of our hard-earned money on this and they don’t want to screw it up. They want it done right the first time . . . If customers could see the final product, choosing System 1 would be a no-brainer. It wouldn’t matter how much it costs. When you choose our company, you get more than what you pay for,” said Richard.
