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!

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:

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.

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:

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:

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.
