Knockdown Ceiling

What Is A Knockdown Ceiling?

Hiding Surface Imperfections With Your Knockdown Ceiling

The quintessential “premium ceiling finish”, the knockdown ceiling is created by spraying a thinned mix of a joint compound onto the ceiling and then scraping it partially off with a hawk and trowel. Big Al’s President, Alex, calls knockdown the “Cadillac of the sprays”. This is because of its light, smooth texture that adds height and can make any ceiling look amazing.

While there are many pros to choosing a knockdown ceiling, there are a few cons to keep in mind as well:

Installation Can Be Tricky : Knockdown ceilings require special equipment and skills for installation, so it’s best to leave this one to the professionals.

We recently contracted Big Al's to refinish our main floor ceilings and we are really pleased with the result. The entire Big Al's team was on-schedule start to finish. In fact, they finished one day ahead of schedule. While a project like our can be rather dusty, our home was left as clean as could be expected. We, honestly, cannot think of any criticism and we highly recommend Big Al's if you are looking to refinish your ceilings.

I was really impressed with Big Als. A few contractors I know recommended them. They were very professional. We had an opportunity to speak to Al and Kevin. I wouldn’t spend much time looking around for someone else to do your textured ceiling. Big Als is the best and the price is good too.

We had James and Frankie come do the texturing from a water leak and then repaint the family room and kitchen. They are 2 of the greatest guys and go above and beyond expectations and everything has to be perfect before they leave. They also came back on a Sunday to do another repair for us outside our house because we couldn’t get anyone else to come do it. They are exceptional employees and will refer your company to others that need work done. Great job guys.

I have a property for sale that had some previous ceiling repairs that were very poorly done. It kept coming up with people viewing the property and I was fortunate enough to have Big Al's come into repair it and refinish it properly. Cam did an absolutely incredible job and I could not be happier with it. There were four large areas to be repaired and the ceilings are 25 years old so I had no expectations for a perfect blend, but somehow or another he managed to do such a great job that no one can even tell that there were repairs there. Thank you so much!!
