I am bidding on a small remodel job and the client would like the popcorn removed from about 900 square feet of ceilings, then retextured and painted. I haven't done it before and am unsure of how to estimate the job. I have two questions: 1) is there any other easier or faster way to remove it than to "spray and scrape"; and 2) has any one either done this before or paid to have it done (in which case, what were you charged)? In either case, does anyone have an idea of how many square feet I can do per hour? Thank you very much for any information you can provide!
