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!

Pool Patio Ceiling Repair – Tape Joints Coming Down – Merritt Island

This Project Blog is about a exterior pool patio ceiling repair on a home in the Indian Bay sub division Merritt Island, FL.
This type of problem is very common on exterior ceilings. Over time the paper drywall tape begins to fail. The heat and humidity from the Florida climate and the added moisture in the air around a pool cause the tape to crack and start falling down.
Over the years I have perfected the technique and best materials to use on these types of exterior ceilings.
1) Cover and protect the pool/patio deck.
2) We removed all of the paper tape from all of the drywall seams.
3) I like to re secure the drywall at all of the seams, just in case the drywall wasn’t secured properly during the drywall installation phase when the home was built.
4) Install fiberglass mesh drywall tape to all of the exposed seams (much more exterior friendly than the drywall paper tape).
5) Apply two coats of a setting type joint compound (hot mud).
6) Apply final coat with all purpose joint compound or light weight compound
7) Install a knockdown texture at the repaired areas, feathering into the existing knockdown texture to match.

Here’s a few Before and After photos of this pool patio ceiling repair with a knockdown texture:

Merritt Island – Wood Siding Repair – Exterior Painting

This Project Blog is about wood siding repair and exterior repaint on a home in the Diana Shores subdivision Merritt Island, FL.
We were contracted to repair a section of the wood siding that had water damage from years of just being in the elements of the harsh Florida climate and then repaint the entire exterior of this Merritt Island home.

First task was to remove a 2′ x 16′ section of the wood siding at the bottom of the north side of the home that had water damage and wood rot.

After the rotten section of the siding was removed, we checked the wood framing to see if any of the framing need to be replaced due to water damage. No damage was present on the wood framing or bottom plate.

Next, we installed the new section of T-111 wood siding and a piece of pressure treated wood trim at the area where the old siding had to be cut.

Then lastly, we spot primed the repaired wood siding and applied two coats of Richards- Signature Series- Acrylic Satin House and Trim Paint.

5 Reason’s Why Peck Drywall and Painting Recycles

•Recycling Saves Natural Resources – By making products from recycled materials instead of new materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.

•Recycling Saves Energy – It usually takes less energy to make recycled products; recycled aluminum, for example, takes 95% less energy.

•Recycling Saves Clean Air and Water – In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.

•Recycling Saves Landfill Space – When the materials that you recycle go into new products, they don’t go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.

•Recycling Saves Money and Creates Jobs – The recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.

Merritt Island FL | Exterior House Painting Project by: Peck Painting

After digging out 4″ to 6″ around the perimeter and pressure washing this Merritt Island home we repaired all of the damaged stucco from the back patio screen room being removed and all of the staircase stucco cracks. We cover and protected plants, sidewalks, windows, pavers and any exterior lighting fixtures. Then apply a tinted primer to ensure good adhesion, caulk all of the windows and apply two coats of Richards Signature Series Exterior Paint-(satin). We also spray painted the garage doors for a new factory finish look.

Once all of the painting was completed we backfilled around the perimeter and did one last walk through with homeowner’s to make sure they were completely satisfied.

A most professional business.

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:
