Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, holy smooth, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home in Sumter, Columbia, Manning, Camden, Bishopville or the surrounding area.
Orange peel is a popular spray-on texture because it hides imperfections but is not as dramatic as a popcorn texture. Preferred by many homeowners in Sumter because of its exceptionally fast drying time, orange peel texture does not require any trowel work or a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size.
While many homeowners are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used at home for its insulating properties, today's popcorn texture is visually crisper with distinct peaks and valleys.
One of the most popular textured spray finishes in homes 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 homes throughout the Sumter area, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed off to create a subtle relief using a drywall trowel with a curved blade. 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. Wet drywall mud is sprayed with a hopper gun. Then we flatten the peaks 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 on your wall.
Stomp: Sometimes called holy smooth, this technique provides a nubby more elevated texture in your home than splatter or mud trowel. To create the spikes the professional painters from Meticulous Services 4U, LLC apply a thin mix of drywall mud with a paint roller. Finally, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before flattening it with a standard knockdown knife.
