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:

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.

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.

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That Ugly, outdated grid lighting system in the kitchen of a Home!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about doing a new kitchen remodel or your just looking to modernize and open up your kitchens feel and get rid of that outdated kitchen drop ceiling and kitchen lights.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:
