Texture Spraying and Knockdown Texture Painting In Boston
Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home 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 commercial settings for its acoustic sound dampening properties, today's popcorn texture is visually more crisp 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 home and commercial settings, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Using a drywall trowel with a curved-blade, drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed 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. A drywall hopper gun is used to spray walls or ceilings with wet drywall mud or joint compound. After spraying surfaces, peaks are flattened with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture that leaves around 60 percent of the surface flat.
- Stomp: Provides a nubby more elevated texture than splatter or mud trowel. Using a thin mix of drywall mud, a paint roller is used to apply it to a wall or ceiling. To create the spikes, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before it is flattened with a standard knockdown knife.

The Motti crew did a job for the house down the street. I was so impressed that I called and eventually hired them to clean and paint our front porch. At the beginning they sent a clear and comprehensive statement of work, the crew then began on time, and the job was clean and outstanding at the end. I hired them this year to do three sides of the house. The crew was thorough and helpful. And they seemed to take their work seriously with joy and with pride.
Motti Painting Solutions recently completed a superb exterior painting job for us. First, they power washed the house, sanded, scrapped and caulked wherever needed. They painted our newly built porch, several sections of the house siding, all the detailed trim work, gutters and downspouts. They applied one full coat of primer and two coats of exterior paint. The crew replaced some complicated rotted trim. Their work was outstanding! The workers were meticulous, professional, polite, quiet and dependable. They worked diligently every day for 11 hours. They cleaned up all debris, materials, and equipment daily. Motti's prices were very fair and very reasonable for such high-quality workmanship which came with a 3 year warranty. We highly recommend Motti Painting Solutions for all your painting needs. We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.
Motti Painting did an amazing job painting the exterior of our house. They are professional and fast and incredibly neat. They are also super responsive and very flexible. When we decided to paint our house, we wanted to do it right away, and they were there within a week of finalizing their proposal. They came every day unless it was raining and left the site really clean and tidy. Whenever they missed a day due to weather, they stayed longer the next day to stay on schedule. We would use them again in a second - we are very happy with the work they did!
Motti Painting solved our decades old problem of trying to keep paint on our 80 year old house. Their crew removed the old paint, made repairs, and added a beautiful colored stain finish that made the house look new again. They kept a clean job sight and started and finished the job promptly. Daniel Motti runs a good business, listens carefully , and is committed to customer service and satisfaction. We have hired Motti Painting again for additional work and highly recommend them.
Daniel and crew were great, and came recommended by a friend who has used them twice. Communicative, flexible, and paid a lot of attention to detail. My neighbors painted their house in 2 days, which was what I thought - painting is super quick. But Daniel and crew do a great job in prepping (scraping paint and fixing wood work), and several rounds of primer and finished coat. They were here for two weeks (10 hours days!) and folks on the whole street have commented about their professionalism and about the finished product. I'd highly recommend reaching out to them. They won't be the cheapst, but they just might be the best.
