What is Popcorn Texture
Popcorn texture is product that was created with asbestos and was widely used in the early 1900's due to its ease of use, low cost and fire resistant properties.

It has the ability to cover imperfections and add acoustic properties. Eventually this texturing method faded out and is seen less in homes since the 2000's.
