Knock-Down Texture Ceiling


“Knock-down texture” is a drywall completion technique used to modernize and/or renovate your existing ceiling or walls. A knock-down texture is a completely safe non-toxic, non-hazardous, water based material that when applied correctly creates a blotchy surface.

It is simply created by watering down joint compound (also known as drywall compound or drywall mud) to a creamy substance.

The name “knock-down” comes from one of the final stages of the job, when a large knock-down knife is utilized to even out the texture applied to the ceiling or walls.
