How to spray popcorn ceiling texture on a drywall ceiling repair

On this popcorn ceiling repair project, I’ll demonstrate how to spray and blend popcorn ceiling texture on an actual ceiling repair that had water damage from a roof leak in Merritt Island, Florida. I’ll be using my GoPro while shooting the video.

This will give you a unique perspective of how I spray and feather and match popcorn ceiling texture with a hopper and compressor.

Prep- After I moved a few things out of the work zone, I covered the floor with 2 mil plastic and in order to contain all of the dust from the ceiling repair and the popcorn ceiling spray texture, I created a plastic bubble going from the ceiling to to the floor by using .31 mil plastic.

Next, I scraped back the area of the ceiling where the popcorn texture had the water damage from a roof leak that had occurred while these homeowners were getting a new roof installed.
After scraping back the popcorn texture, I primed the area with a can of Kilz stain blocking primer. This helps the popcorn ceiling texture get maximum adhesion to the existing popcorn ceiling and also will prevent any water stains to bleed through where the new popcorn texture meets the old popcorn.

Next, I sprayed the popcorn ceiling texture using my smaller hopper and 15 gallon compressor since it’s just a small ceiling repair area that needs to be sprayed with the popcorn ceiling texture. I first concentrate on going around the perimeter of the ceiling repair. Then, I move on to spraying the main part of the popcorn ceiling repair. Lastly, I blend the popcorn texture into the old popcorn texture from the repair line out lightly feathering at the very end to create a gradual fade into the ceiling repair.

Good luck with your popcorn ceiling repair and texture matching project!

Cocoa Beach Popcorn Ceiling is Falling Down!

The sprayed on popcorn texture (also known as acoustical ceiling texture) was falling off of this Cocoa Beach condo’s ceiling. Of course right smack in the middle of the ceiling in the main livingroom. That just so happen to have one of the best views of the Banana River that Cocoa Beach has to offer.

Right when I looked at this ceiling I knew that a tape joint had been previously repaired at one of the drywall seams. My guess would be that when this popcorn ceiling had been repaired before. The contractors didn’t prime the dusty surface after removing the old tape joint and scraping back the popcorn texture at the repair to be able to re secure and re mud the new drywall taping and mudding areas..

Dust surfaces are not the ideal area to try and do drywall finishing on. These types of ceiling repairs will surely fail if the proper preparations are not done at the beginning of a popcorn ceiling repair project or any type of ceiling repair or drywall repair for that matter…

This popcorn ceiling even had the silver glitter on it. I’ve been in the drywall trades long enough to have glitter gun from back in the early 1990’s when it was the latest and greatest new ceiling texture with glitter.

Indialantic Ceiling Repair and Skip Trowel Texture Match

This Project Blog is about a drywall ceiling repair on a home in the Rio Villa sub division Indialantic, FL.
We were contracted to repair a section of the formal dining room ceiling that had water damage from a roof leak.
First task was to cover and protect the flooring and anything else in the room.

Then we removed and replaced a 4′ x 12′ section of the drywall ceiling that had a skip trowel texture.

After the new drywall was installed, three coats of a setting type joint compound was applied so the drywall finishing and skip trowel texture could be completed in one day.

Next, we Installed a skip trowel texture at the repaired area feathering into the existing skip trowel texture.

Then lastly, spot primed the repair and applied two coats of Richards- Rich Wall Premium Acrylic Paint (flat white-L4 white tint).

Here’s a few Before and After photos of this drywall ceiling repair with Skip Trowel texture:

I absolutely recommend Peck Painting.

Paul Peck provided an accurate labor estimate then completed a beautiful and professional 100% interior paint job to my recently purchased home. The job required several sheet rock repairs that are now invisible. His attention to detail is obvious. My home has ceilings up to 30′ with nooks and crannies that look just as good as the easily reachable areas. I absolutely recommend Peck Painting.

Barry the cable guy stepped thru my popcorn ceiling!

One of my customers recently got more than cable tv and wireless internet, when Barry the cable guy went to run a couple new cables. Barry accidently stepped on the drywall ceiling from the backside while maneuvering across the trusses up in the attic over the living room hall.
Mr. Jones said he heard a very loud Crunch and Thud. When he went to see what had happened, Barry’s leg was hanging out of the popcorn ceiling! Drywall and insulation was all over the floor. Thankfully Barry was not injured.
This is where I come into the picture. Mr. Jones sent an estimate request through my website which went to my phone. After speaking with Mr. Jones, I went out to have a look and secure the drywall ceiling. Once the cable company ok’d the estimate, I went back and repaired the attic step thru and re-sprayed a popcorn texture blending it into the existing popcorn ceiling.

Here’s a few of the Before and After Photo’s of the Popcorn Ceiling Repair:
