Question for ConMah My buddy and his wife have those popcorn textured ceilings

They want to do away with those ceilings and go with standard paint , Does this texture contain asbestos? I have read your answer how to remove it from a previous question someone asked which is a great idea and I plan to use your idea. I hear so many pros and cons about textured ceilings containing asbestos , So I need an answer from the expert , Thank you

Asbestos was primarily used as insulation. I've never encountered it as popcorn ceiling texture. At any rate asbestos was outlawed in 1977 so if the house is less than 35 years old there would be no way for asbestos to be present. I hope this helps.

Thank you so much , Now when the time comes to remove the ceiling texture , I can tell them and we can remove it with confidence . I am very delierous about asbestos because my mom's best friend has stage 4 mesothielioma and with the chemotherapy and other treatments he's getting , He is not fairing well at all. I myself and especially my close friends and family members dont want to end up getting it and I pray that no more people get it . Once again , Thank you so much for your help and whenever I'm not sure about something , I'll for sure be looking you up
