New Looks In Textured Spraying, Knockdown and Holy Smooth For Homes Near Boston
Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, holy smooth, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home in Boston, Newton, Winchester, Melrose, Brookline or the surrounding area.
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. Preferred by many homeowners in Boston because of its exceptionally fast drying time, orange peel texture does not require any trowel work or a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size.
Popcorn Textured Spraying
While many homeowners are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used at home for its insulating properties, today's popcorn texture is visually crisper with distinct peaks and valleys.
One of the most popular textured spray finishes in homes 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 homes throughout the Boston area, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed off to create a subtle relief using a drywall trowel with a curved blade. 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. Wet drywall mud is sprayed with a hopper gun. Then we flatten the peaks 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 on your wall.
Stomp: Sometimes called holy smooth, this technique provides a nubby more elevated texture in your home than splatter or mud trowel. To create the spikes the professional painters from Motti Painting Solutions Inc. apply a thin mix of drywall mud with a paint roller. Finally, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before flattening it with a standard knockdown knife.

what our customers say
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.
