We can replace your dated for damaged ceilings with knockdown texture or a smooth finish making your ceilings like new. Popcorn is a gypsum-based product, which makes removing it messy and difficult.

Once the popcorn has been removed the ceilings must be re finished to receive knockdown texture or a smooth finish.
A knockdown texture can be best described as a “stucco-like” finish. Joint compound is sprayed on wall or ceilings and then trowled to give it its appearance. Knockdown should be sprayed from a large mix and pump machine in order to achieve uniform consistency. Knockdown texture must be painted.
Smooth finishing has been around forever and will never go out of style. To achieve a high-quality smooth finish, ceilings are skim-coated (two coats for drywall and three coats for concrete slabs) with a joint compound. Afterward, the surface is sanded to eliminate imperfections
Smooth ceilings are typically more labor-intensive, and time-consuming than textured ceilings. In addition, smooth ceilings do not hide imperfections.
