I hired Tape2Finish to remove the stucco/popcorn ceiling from my living room, that the previous owner decided to paint. I sourced quotes from about a half dozen contractors in total, Rob from T2F was among the lowest but there were 2 main reasons I went with Rob:
1) He is extremely responsive. Many other companies sent automated quotes and I could not get in touch with a real person; Rob would email, text or call in short notice to answer all my questions.
2) He is very professional and explained the whole procedure to me while at my house, providing an up-front quote that he stuck to. Other providers would only give vague estimates.
Rob and his colleague had the whole job done in 2 days, leaving the ceiling smooth as anything, and cleaning up after themselves. The openings to the stairs and kitchen were covered in plastic, the floor was covered in paper to prevent the ceiling mess from getting everywhere.
There was some minor clean up after the job, but much less than I'd expected.
The ceiling was a breeze for us to paint! Would definitely use Tape2Finish again.
