Understanding The Type Of Textured Ceiling

Applying texture to ceilings has been used to complement interior design for years. It’s a versatile way to add visual interest and can be used to hide imperfections. But before you start shopping for texture products, it’s important to understand your options. With multiple ways to apply texture, each producing a different result, the choice can be overwhelming. Big Al’s is committed to guiding you in choosing the right textured ceiling for your home.

Paint Grade

Simple, smooth, and timeless—a paint-grade finish is perfect for those who want a clean look. This texture is ideal if you plan on painting your ceiling, as it provides an excellent surface for even coverage.


A flat ceiling is exactly what it sounds like. It’s smooth with no texture, making it the best choice for a contemporary or minimalist aesthetic. If this is the look you’re going for, we recommend this texture.


The knockdown finish is our premium product. Knockdown is very visually pleasing because of its light and smooth finish, even adding height to a room. Big Al’s President, Alex, calls knockdown the “Cadillac of the sprays.” If you want to add maximum value to your home, this top texture choice for most Calgary ceiling projects is the way to go.


Popcorn-textured ceilings are the base standard texture. This helps in camouflaging your ceiling’s imperfections and can give your room more visual weight. If you want to add more dimension and reduce sound reflection, popcorn ceilings are a great choice.

Splatter/Orange Peel

The splatter finish, also known as the orange-peel texture, is somewhere in between the popcorn and knockdown textures. It’s perfect for those who want to hide minor imperfections but don’t want their ceiling to be too heavy-looking.

Borders & Custom Designs

In addition to our standard textures, we also offer borders and custom designs. This is a great way to add a unique touch to your unfinished or finished space. Whether you’re looking for a subtle change or something more dramatic, we can help you achieve the look you want. Big Al’s has customized many different textured ceiling styles for Calgary homeowners over the last 30 years – smoked, swirls, half-moon, and icicles have all been popular choices in the past.

Drywall Repairs

If you have any cracked or damaged drywall, it’s important to repair it before texturing. At Big Al’s Texturing, we can take care of all your drywall repair needs. We’ll make sure your ceiling is in top condition before we start the texturing process. Not only will this improve the look of your textured ceiling, but it will also extend its lifespan.

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 hired Big Al's for what I would consider a challenging ceiling Repair and blend into an older textured ceiling, this turned out better than expected. Quick, clean and delivering exactly what they promised. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

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!!
