Texture Spraying and Knockdown Texture Painting In Clemson
Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home or commercial space.
Orange Peel Textured Spraying
Orange peel is a popular spray-on texture because it hides imperfections but is not as dramatic as a popcorn texture. Orange peel texture does not require any trowel work. It does require a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size, as well as plenty of drying time.
Popcorn Textured Spraying
While many people are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used in commercial settings for its acoustic sound dampening properties, today's popcorn texture is visually more crisp with distinct peaks and valleys.
One of the most popular textured spray finishes today is "knockdown". The knockdown texture has three types: mud trowel, splatter and stomp. All have textured relief characteristics but feature a distinct look.
- Mud Trowel: Used in home and commercial settings, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Using a drywall trowel with a curved-blade, drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed off to create a subtle relief. This technique requires several coats, expert technique, and longer drying time.
- Splatter: The least expensive and quickest to apply option, splatter has the look of Spanish stucco. A drywall hopper gun is used to spray walls or ceilings with wet drywall mud or joint compound. After spraying surfaces, peaks are flattened with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture that leaves around 60 percent of the surface flat.
- Stomp: Provides a nubby more elevated texture than splatter or mud trowel. Using a thin mix of drywall mud, a paint roller is used to apply it to a wall or ceiling. To create the spikes, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before it is flattened with a standard knockdown knife.

What People Say About Us
Excellent work! They got us in a few days early which was great. We had four ceilings done (2 bath and 2 rooms). Hard working, cleaned as they went. They removed the popcorn and painted. What a difference. I plan to get my house exterior painted with them.
Highly recommend! Did great work on our ceilings and was also very punctual and kind.
I chose Leonard to do a remodel on my home that included removing the popcorn ceilings, painting the entire house, refinishing the cabinets, pressure washing the house and staining the concrete floors on the screen in porch and on the garage floor and it looks completely amazing like a brand new house. I couldn't ask for better communication and service he even helped pick out the colors and can't thank him enough.
When I decided to put my home on the market I hired Leonard and his crew they worked at my home for several months painting,removing popcorn ceilings,changing lighting,pressure washing,and staining the concrete floors on the screen porch and also the garage and I couldn?t be more pleased it added so much value to the house not to mention Leonard was a pleasure to work with always good communication and punctuality from now on I wouldn?t hire anyone else.
We were very pleased with the outcome of the exterior paint job that Leonard and his crew did for us. They also took down storm windows and washed them as well as outside windows. We would certainly recommend him for your painting needs.
Called around a few days looking for someone professional to handle some painting around my business. After the third estimate and many conversations we chose Leonard. Very glad we did. Very professional. Showed up when he said he would and handled the project a day before scheduled. It looks amazing and we couldn't ask for a better job. Thank you sir. You and your people are amazing. We will be recommending you to everyone. God bless!!
