A Brief Description of a Knock-Down Texture Ceiling

Knock-down texture is a drywall completion technique that is often used in modernizing and/or renovating interior ceilings or walls. A knock-down texture ceiling is completely safe, non-toxic, and non-hazardous. The technique utilizes a water-based material that produces a spotty surface when it is applied properly. The joint compound (which may also be referred to by other names such as drywall compound or drywall mud) is watered down to achieve a creamy and smooth consistency. During the final stages of the job, the stalactites that form are removed from the ceiling with a tool known as a “knock-down knife” which is how the technique earns its name. If you are searching for experts in applying this particular type of ceiling texture, those experts are none other than the skilled craftsmen of Ross Brothers.

The Popularity of Knock-Down Texture Ceiling

A knock-down texture ceiling is a popular drywall finishing in homes, mainly due to its excellent ability to hide stains or other flaws on ceilings and walls. Since it is such a straightforward approach to home improvement, many homeowners choose this particular finish in order to transform their flat walls or ceilings, and add a new level of distinction to their homes. Knock-down is also popular since it is quite economical in terms of the investment necessary. The final end result of a knock-down texture will vary, depending on whether the application requested is light, medium (the most commonly selected), or heavy.

Considering A Knock-Down Texture  In Your Home

When you are considering a ceiling with the knock-down texture in your own home, it is wise to consider having a professional company with experience, such as Ross Brothers, to perform the job for you. Knock-down texture cannot be applied until all the imperfections and necessary repairs to the drywall have been addressed and completed. Once all of these preparations are complete, the process of applying the texture begins. It is recommended to have this step completed by a professional company, as hand-held “Hopper Guns” that are commonly used when attempted as a DIY Project don’t apply the texture in an even and steady stream, causing it to look shoddy and sloppy. Professional knock-down application requires the use of a commercial grade spray rig. The texture is allowed to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before the knock-down knife is used to literally knock down and balance out the stalactites that have formed, reducing the noticeable edges of the texture. Once completed, the ceiling can be primed and made ready for painting.
