Whether they’re new drywall, old plaster or a repaired ceiling of any type; Showing flaws are notorious. And light shining across an uninterrupted surface accentuates every pockmark and every little ridge left by the paint roller.
At Masterpiece Painting Contractors we know that the beauty of knockdown texture adds warmth and depth to your walls and also creates a more subtle look hiding imperfections, stains and uneven spaces giving the illusion the walls and ceilings are straight adding a contemporary looking to your home.
The texture also adds interest to the ceilings and walls breaking up an otherwise boring feature to your room. After 10 years of experience we have developed our Knockdown Texture System to make sure your project is done properly, faster, cleaner, better and long lasting.
Below are the “general steps” we will take on your knockdown texture project. Your situation may vary depending upon your needs as outlined on your Proposal.
Move furniture and decor items from the room. Tape plastic sheeting over the floor and any immovable objects in the room.
Patch drywall imperfections, Remove loosen joint tape, put fiber mesh, apply joint compound and sand the surfaces to be texture down.
Spray the ceilings or walls with the joint compound texture, let dry and rake over the ceiling with a knockdown knife to flatten the texture.
Apply one even coat of pro-blocking primer to all knockdown textured surfaces to make sure the new paint is going to have a uniform appearance (no yellowing), a properly adhesion (no peeling), and to maintain its color (no bleeding through) for years to come. This will guarantee a long lasting job.
Here is the difference!
After the new texture ceilings are dry we apply premium latex paint to have a water resistant surface.
