Best Painting, Gainesville
Business owners in Gainesville add more visual interest and easily hide nicks and dings to walls with a textured finish. Knockdown, orange peel and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any apartment or commercial space.
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.
While many people are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used in a commercial setting for its acoustic sound dampening properties, today's popcorn texture is visually crisper 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 commercial settings, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Using a drywall trowel with a curved blade, we apply drywall mud. Next, we skim it 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. The painters at North Florida Painting of Alachua, LLC use a drywall hopper gun to spray walls or ceilings with wet drywall mud. After spraying surfaces, we flatten peaks with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture leaving around 60 percent of the surface flat.
Stomp: Sometimes called "Holy Smooth," it provides a nubby more elevated texture than splatter or mud trowel. The professional painters at North Florida Painting of Alachua, LLC use a paint roller to apply a thin mix of drywall to your ceiling. To create the spikes, we use a crows-foot brush to stomp the mud before flattening it with a standard knockdown knife.
Prep Work & Clean-Up: With the right type of spray gun and expertise, texture spraying, or knockdown treatments provide consistent texture within a short period of time. One of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of texture spraying, or knockdown application is the prep work done first. Our professional painters pay close attention to covering furniture and surfaces, as well as preparing your ceilings and walls to ensure a high-quality result.

Terry and his crew repainted 25 colonial windows in my 84 year old Duck Pond house, they also pressure washed the exterior. My window look new again! Terry painted my house 6 years ago, he was referred to me by the manager of Sherwin-Williams Paint as the best painter in town. They start early, no noise, radio's or smoking and get it done. If you want the best call North Florida Painting.
I used North Florida Painting after speaking to and inspecting our property with three firms offering proposals for the work to be done. Terry Jertberg was straightforward, professional and informative about the process, materials used and timeframes needed. The workers arrived on time as promised with Mr. Jertberg present and directing the job. They were efficient, very neat, talented and extremely professional. They used Sherwin-Williams products. I would recommend them and have given their name to several neighbors who saw how great my exterior painting came out.
Terry did a tremendous job on painting our home. He thoroughly listened to what we wanted and more than delivered! We told him we wanted to use Sherwin-Williams Emerald Rain Refresh paint which is brand new to the market. This paint is like Rain X for your car and literally washes dirt off the side of the house while it's raining or with a hose.
We also asked him to install new light fixtures on the outside of the house, paint a chair that sits on our porch, paint the vents on the roof, as well as install garage door accents. He even fixed our chimney that he noticed needed a slight repair. He truly cares about what he's doing and treated this job like it was his own house he was painting. If you are looking for a painter do yourself a favor; stop searching and just pick up the phone and call Terry. You'll be glad you did! Thanks for the refresh Terry, we are super happy with the results.
