Plaster and Texture
There are many different textures, but the most common around SWFL seems to be skip trowel and knockdown. If it’s a patch job, we will always match the patch to the existing texture so you will never be able to tell a hole was there.
Here are textures you can choose from when doing a remodel or building a new home.
Skip Trowel – This is one of the most popular types of drywall texture and it looks great on walls, especially if you’re going for a more contemporary look.
Knockdown – Knockdown texture is another popular one, with either a light or heavy consistency. It’s great if you’re going for a mediterranean style home. This is one of the harder textures to match, as it requires a sprayer and work to get a matching consistency. The texture is sprayed and then knocked down to create consistent, flat bumps.
Orange Peel – Similar to knockdown, orange peel is a sprayed texture, except it doesn’t get knocked down with a trowel or knife. Typically, this texture is sprayed from a smaller nozzle to create a bunch of small bumps on the wall, making the wall have the same texture as an orange peel.
There are other textures, such as swirl, lace and crow’s foot. Popcorn ceiling is common in many older homes, but we’re mostly in charge of removing it and re-texturing the wall or ceiling.
Common Drywall Fixes
Holes, cracks, sagging drywall, exposed drywall tape, and nicks in the corner bead are all common problems we handle for customers on a daily basis.
