Knockdown textured ceiling bubbling while painting lanai in Rockledge, Fl.

Rockledge Exterior-ceiling bubble

Rockledge patio ceiling bubbling

Textured patio ceiling bubbling, blistered or falling down?

I’ve seen this issue quite a few times over the years on knockdown, skip trowel, orange peel and popcorn textured exterior drywall ceilings.

In this video I’m scraping the areas where the knockdown texture and paint had bubbled.

So today while on an complete exterior repaint in Rockledge, Fl.
I was painting the first coat of exterior latex paint on the lanai ceiling, when the knockdown texture on the exterior drywall pool patio ceiling started to come off on to my roller nap. The ceiling texture had bubbled in two separate areas. It was as if the texture itself had lost any adhesion and all that was left after peeling the texture off was bare drywall which was dusty just like the back of the texture sheet that I removed.
I’m not sure if the ceiling was painted to soon before the knockdown texture had dried completely back when the home was built in 1998 or if there was some type of roof leak or if the exterior patio ceiling had just been baked by the hot Florida summer temperatures for the last 16 years that had caused the texture to fail long before we started painting the ceiling.

After scraping the problem areas of the ceiling I will:
1) Spot prime these areas with a spray can of oil base Kilz
2) Skim coat the primed areas with 20 minute hot mud
3) Wet sand the edges to blend into the existing texture
4) Apply the knockdown texture feathering to match the existing ceiling texture
5) Spot prime with a quality latex primer
6) Spot paint areas with an exterior paint
7) Repaint the entire lanai ceiling

In conclusion. As you can see that are a lot of steps that go into repairing an exterior ceiling that is bubbling and then trying to match the original knockdown texture on a project like this. I would recommend getting a professional drywall or painting contractor in your area who knows the best ceiling repair techniques and paint products suited for your climate. But, if you’re an advanced DIY’er or handyman and you’re up for a challenge. Then have fun with it and Happy texturing!

Can my exterior window frames be painted?

This Project Blog is about exterior painting project where we also painted the peeling and chalky exterior window frames on a home in the Summer Brook sub division Melbourne, FL.

Chances are if your reading this, your windows might need a little face lift.
Getting new windows for your home just because the paint is drab and chalky could cost a pretty penny.
The good news is that You have found the perfect Melbourne painting contractor to make your windows look like new again for a fraction of the price that it would cost you to replace your windows.

Check this out:
I just finished up an exterior repaint in Melbourne, where we also painted the window frames because the windows were chalky. I have a proven track record and years of experience to prep your windows for a flawless factory finish.
Over the years I have perfected the technique and best materials to use on these types of exterior window frames.
1) Pressure wash all of the exterior surfaces to be painted.
2) Prep the surface and area around the window to be painted
3) We like to use our airless paint sprayer to prime your window frames with Richards Paint – Multi Surface Primer/Sealer.
4) After the primer dries, we caulk all of the windows to be painted.
5) Lastly, I spray two coats of Richards – Signature Series (satin or semi gloss) exterior paint for a long lasting and durable finish.

Here’s a few Before and After photos of a couple of the windows we painted:

I am absolutely delighted with the finished result.
Peck Drywall and Painting painted the exterior of my home after performing some minor stucco repairs.
I have a stucco home that needed painting and some minor stucco repair. Paul Peck came out to give an estimate in person at my earliest convenience and was very knowledgable and professional. His estimate was competitive with the four other estimates I received and he was able to start the job within a short period of time. He was present each day and his crew is very skilled and courteous. They worked around inclement weather and kept me informed of any issues or schedule adjustments. I am absolutely delighted with the finished result and would not hesitate to recommend this company to other Angie’s List members.

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.

Outstanding estimates, outstanding work. Never a doubt as to the quality of the product. Paul inspects the job much more thoroughly than me. Yes, I recommend Peck Drywall and Painting to anyone who asks.

What to do with my old kitchen drop ceiling lighting?

Cocoa Beach condo kitchen ceiling light- Before

It’s a common dilemma among home and condo owners that I’m sure most of you have seen before.

That Ugly, outdated grid lighting system in the kitchen of a Home!

Whether you’re thinking about doing a new kitchen remodel or your just looking to modernize and open up your kitchens feel and get rid of that outdated kitchen drop ceiling and kitchen lights.
This process that I developed many years ago will turn any of these eyesore ceilings into a show piece that you will love and your neighbors will envy. I’ve installed close to one hundred of these types of trey ceilings here in the Brevard County area over the years.

Here some photo’s of the process:

Interior Painting 8 colors and 1 townhouse in Melbourne,Florida

I just finished up this interior painting project in the Suntree/Viera area of Melbourne.
The townhouse is 2200 sq.ft. We painted the entire place: baseboards, casing, crown, stair trim, spindles, all doors, bifolds, ceilings, walls and three accent walls. It was unoccupied and all of the carpeting will be replaced after the painting is completed.
We used a local paint manufacturers paint called Richards Paint. They’re at the top of my the list when it comes to paint quality in my book.

What this Homeowner had to say about his interior painting project
By: Peck Painting

Quality Excellent

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.

Randy Becker – Melbourne, Fl

We cut and rolled most everthing. We used the airless sprayer to spray the stair trim, baseboards, bifolds, doors and trim.
Ceilings: Flat Wnite.
Walls and Accent Walls: Satin
Trim, Doors, bathroom’s and Laundry Room: Semi-gloss

Completely Professional!
I have had a number of contractors do work on homes I have owned over the years and Peck Drywall and Painting is only the second that I would rate as completely professional. Beginning with an extremely user friendly well laid out website, promptness in giving an estimate for doing a knockdown textured ceiling and then scheduling and completing the job as well as cleaning up after themselves, the only thing I can say is professional, professional, professional. The bid for the job was very competitive and I would be very hard pressed to find anything to complain about.<br/>

Chuck P. Melbourne Beach, Fl

 

Great Work & Great Price!

Peck provides high quality work at competitive pricing. I was impressed with the painting of the exterior of our home as well as the repair and staining to our pool deck. The company’s employees were timely, courteous and professional. I found completion of the project to be timely with quality products. I solicit and manage contracted services in my professional career and would not hesitate to solicit proposals from this contactor for business or personal projects in the future.
