Process: We will wet and remove the existing acoustic texture and prep the drywall. The prep consists of skim coating the tape joints, set and spot the nail heads, and screw up the loose drywall if needed. We will then apply an Orange Peel Splatter, Knock Down texture, or smooth finish.
Texture finishes: The Orange Peel Splatter is a light texture finish, which results in a smoother look. The Knock Down is a heavier textured application that is hand troweled for a laced finished look.
Time: Approximately 1,000 sq. ft. of acoustic can be removed, prepared and textured in one day. The ceilings then need to cure for approximately 1 to 3 days before painting.
Process: If the existing acoustic ceilings are a hard plaster texture, we will scrape and apply a smooth or textured hand troweled finish.
Time: Approximately 350 sq. ft of ceilings can be completed in one day. The ceilings need to cure for approximately 4 to 7 days before painting.
(If there is a smooth coat underneath)
Process: If the acoustic ceiling texture was applied over an existing smooth plaster finish, than we will wet and remove the existing texture and prep the existing surface for paint.
Time: Approximately 1000 sq. ft. of acoustic can be removed and prepared for paint in one day. The ceilings need to cure for approx. 1 to 3 days before painting.
Process: We apply a primer sealer coat and new acoustic texture finish. The standard acoustic color is "White".
Time: Approximately 1,500 sq. ft. can be completed in one day.
Process: All cracks will be taped (fiberglass), patched and finished to match the existing surface. All loose paint, plaster, etc. is scraped, patched, and prepared before the finish is applied. All repairs will be completed before any texturing, plastering, or painting is applied.
