Vaulted Ceiling Repair- Knockdown Texture Matching

This Project Blog is about a vaulted ceiling repair on a rental home in Cocoa, FL.
Along with priming and painting the entire interior of this Port Saint John home. We were also contracted to repair the tape joint at the vaulted ceiling that was cracking and falling down.
First, We needed to cover and protect even though the carpeting will be replaced after all of the interior painting and ceiling repairs are completed. Next, Remove and replace the tape joint at vaulted ceiling and apply three coats of a setting type joint compound. Then, Install knockdown texture at repaired area feathering into the existing knockdown texture. Next, Prime the repair and all of the other ceilings and walls with an oil base stain blocking primer due to some smoke damage from the previous renters. Lastly, We applied two coats of Richards- Rich-shield Paint (satin).

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.

Popcorn Removal in Palm Bay, Fl | Skip Trowel Texture

The Job:
On this popcorn removal project. We removed the dated popcorn texture from the living room, kitchen, dining room and foyer ceilings of a home in Palm Bay/Melbourne, Florida.

First task is to cover and protect everything in these rooms with plastic. Including the walls. Next,we  removed all of the outdated and yellowed popcorn ceiling texture.
Once the popcorn texture is removed, we repaired several failing and cracked tape joints and filled any holes on the now exposed drywall ceiling.
After the repairs were competed, we applied a skip trowel hand texture to ceilings.
Next, we primed newly skip troweled ceilings with an oil base stain blocking primer to insure good adheshion and beautiful bright white ceilings after the finsh coat of paint has been applied. Lastly we painted the skip troweled ceilings with two coats of Sherwin Williams Pro-Mar 200 semi-gloss paint.

Here’s a youtube video of this popcorn removal project:

What the homeowners had to say about their new skip troweled ceilings:

Paul and his team are highly professional and capable. He created a skip trowel ceiling for us that can honestly be described as a work of art! No more popcorn ceiling and we’re very happy with the result.
