Texture Spraying, Holy Smooth and Knockdown Texture Painting In Raleigh
Business owners in Raleigh add more visual interest and easily hide nicks and dings to walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, orange peel and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any apartment or commercial space.
Orange Peel Textured Spraying
Orange peel is a popular spray-on texture because it hides imperfections but is not as dramatic as a popcorn texture. Orange peel texture does not require any trowel work. It does require a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size, as well as plenty of drying time.
Popcorn Textured Spraying
While many people are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used in a commercial setting for its acoustic sound dampening properties, today's popcorn texture is visually crisper with distinct peaks and valleys.
One of the most popular textured spray finishes 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 commercial settings, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Using a drywall trowel with a curved blade, we apply drywall mud. Next, we skim it off to create a subtle relief. 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. The painters at Matrix Painting Inc. use a drywall hopper gun to spray walls or ceilings with wet drywall mud. After spraying surfaces, we flatten peaks with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture leaving around 60 percent of the surface flat.
Stomp: Sometimes called "Holy Smooth," it provides a nubby more elevated texture than splatter or mud trowel. The professional painters at Matrix Painting Inc. use a paint roller to apply a thin mix of drywall to your ceiling. To create the spikes, we use a crows-foot brush to stomp the mud before flattening it with a standard knockdown knife.
What To Expect
Prep Work & Clean-Up: With the right type of spray gun and expertise, texture spraying, or knockdown treatments provide consistent texture within a short period of time. One of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of texture spraying, or knockdown application is the prep work done first. Our professional painters pay close attention to covering furniture and surfaces, as well as preparing your ceilings and walls to ensure a high-quality result. Matrix Painting Inc.'s painters are very conscientious when it comes to being clean and tidy. We keep our work area clean and complete a full clean-up quickly after finishing the project.
Scheduling: Matrix Painting Inc. provides you a high-quality result in as short a period of time as possible. We know having a painting company in your place of business can be inconvenient. We work with you on scheduling and make our best efforts to minimize the impact on your day-to-day life.
Get An Estimate: You deserve to know the cost of texture spraying and knockdown treatments with complete certainty. Some painting companies and painting contractors offer only a simple estimate, leaving the total price of supplies and the true cost of labor until the job is complete. That's not how it works with Matrix Painting Inc..
Our knockdown and textured spraying specialists conduct a comprehensive review of your project. Next, we provide you with a price including not just painting supplies or labor but the total cost of your knockdown or textured spraying project. As with any home improvement project there are unforeseen circumstances, but you can relax knowing Matrix Painting Inc. will discuss any changes to our quote with you.

Recently, Matrix Painting painted the exterior of our rental house in Durham. The house needed some carpentry work for rotten wood and also needed two decks stained. The finished work was absolutely beautiful. Ryan and his crew brought the house back to life. This is the second home that Ryan and his company have painted for us. We have been impressed each time. Ryan is on time, he responds quickly to correspondence, has alot of knowledge and good ideas about paints and stains, and his prices beat any of the other quotes! His crew is on time, took care of our property and take pride in their work. Matrix Painting was a very stress free experience. They are my go to painters
Matrix Painting gave our 100+ year old house a wonderful makeover in July. The whole experience was great from the day Ryan came to do an estimate to the final handshake and thank yous. We were grateful for his helpful suggestions on color choices and finishes. The crews were all polite and hardworking and cleaned up the job site every day. From powerwashing to scraping, sanding and caulking they did an excellent job of prepping the variety of surfaces. We are very satisfied with the work and smile every time we come home. I highly recommend Matrix Painting.
10/10 Recommend Matrix Painting. We hired them to paint the entire outside of our house including both front porch & back deck as well as replace siding and other carpentry work. They did a stellar job all around and I was very impressed with the carpentry work as we had a lot of custom pieces on our older home. Their crews were on schedule and finished our job a day earlier than expected which rarely happens when working with contractors. Customer Service was excellent as well. Highly recommend them.
I have used Ryan's crew at Matrix Painting now for two jobs several years apart - the exterior of my home (brick and cedar) and a large interior room. Both times, his crew worked quickly and was very respectful and clean. The results were great and on the interior job just yesterday, they took almost a full day to just patch and sand walls to have the best possible result. They could have just filled nail holes but they sanded any unevenness and the outcome was awesome. Also, I recall when I painted my exterior that he recommended I choose a different shade of door color to achieve my result (Wolfpack red) because the light from the front of the house would affect how the color appeared. He was 100% correct and it all looks amazing and how I had envisioned. Thanks Matrix!
Ryan and his team are absolutely wonderful. They are on time, professional, and genuinely care about their work. This is the second time I have worked with them. In 2018 they did extensive siding repairs and painted my house. This month they did repairs to the front windows and gutters and painted the area after power washing my house. They did a beautiful job and best of all, I knew immediately who to call for these repairs. I would and will work with them again. I cannot say enough about how good it is to work with them. Ryan comes out personally to work up a very thorough estimate which is extremely accurate and fair. They are truly an exceptional painting company.
