We provide a full range of Ceiling and Drywall repair services. Textured Ceiling repair, Stipple Ceiling Repair, Popcorn Ceiling Repair, to make this simpler, we just call this ceiling repair.
Repairing ceilings whether it is from water damage or renovation work in progress, follows these procedure. If there is a piece of drywall damaged or missing on the ceiling, the drywall on the ceiling has to be cut back to attach a new piece of drywall, this area is then taped and one or two coats of drywall compound is applied and sanded. The drywall is then primed and re-stippled.
The difficult part of this process is trying to match the existing old stipple on the ceiling with the new ceiling texture repair. There are many types of ceiling texture products, fine, medium, and coarse and many ways to apply these products. The new ceiling texture has to ideally be sprayed in the same direction and thickness as the previous stipple on the ceiling was applied.
The new ceiling texture will not be an exact or perfect match but it should be close. The ceiling patch should be unnoticeable however we cannot guarantee that will be the case all the time. If you are doing other painting in the house it is much more cost effective to do this repair at the same time.
The biggest cost in ceiling repairs is the number of trips to the house, usually 2 or 3 trips before the ceiling repair and stipple repair is complete. Unless the ceiling has been painted fairly recently chances are you will be painting the entire ceiling where the original ceiling repair was, simply because the new stipple repair will be bright white and quite noticeable.
