Texture ceilings, also known as cottage cheese ceiling or more accurately an acoustic texture ceiling, is a term for a spray-on ceiling texture used from the late 1950s into the 1980s in American residential construction. It was the standard for bedroom and residential hallway ceilings for its bright, white appearance, noise reduction qualities and ability to hide imperfections, while kitchen and living rooms ceilings would normally be finished in smoother ceiling texture for their higher durability and ease of cleaning.
Popcorn Ceiling texture repairs can not be matched in color and the ceiling texture will fade over a period of time. When damage occurs from water leaks or broken pipes in the ceiling it will inevitably cause your ceiling to stain with water marks if the damaged ceiling is not repaired properly. We recomend respraying the whole ceiling for matching purpose, if you do not consider all new popcorn and only repair it will not match.
That’s why you need a professional. So why not call Faircloth Drywall for all your ceiling texture repairs?
