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.

Melbourne Beach water damaged drywall and popcorn ceiling repair

On this water damaged drywall and popcorn ceiling repair project in Melbourne Beach. The homeowners were looking to put their beach home on the real estate market to sell. But before they could, they needed to do several home repairs.

Doing just a few of the basics like ceiling repairs, drywall repairs, pressure washing, exterior painting and interior painting can make your home more appealing to potential buyers. But can also triple or even quadruple the home sellers ROI (return on investment) that was put into getting your home improvements done by a licensed contractor.

First on the list after getting their roof repaired. Next they had contracted me to repair a portion of the living room’s water damaged drywall ceiling that had fallen down and another larger section on the garage ceiling and a 4’x 6′ section of the garage wall. The garage ceiling had really bad dark brown water stains on about a 66 square feet of the popcorn ceiling that had occurred from a heavy rain storm causing the barrel tiled roof to leak causing all of this water damaged drywall and popcorn ceilings.

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.

Here’s a few Before and After photos of this Merritt Island wood siding repair :

Stucco repair I did last week in Cocoa,FL on an exterior repaint

Here’s a couple before and after photos of a stucco repair I did last week in Cocoa, Fl on an exterior repaint I was doing.

Water had got behind that decorative stucco piece and rusted out the wire lathe.
Which ultimately caused the stucco to fail in that area.

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:

In this Video Playlist I have videos of how to mix skip trowel texture, applying skip trowel texturing tips and tricks and even some project videos where I’m wearing a GoPro video camera to get a very unique perspective of the skip troweling process.


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

Choose Peck Drywall and Painting…you will be delighted!
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.
