I have three skylight vaults in my townhouse which have the textured
"pop corn" finish on the drywall. When I had the skylights replaced,
2-3" of the finish material adjacent to the window fell off or is
What is the best way to repair this? Do they make this material
pre-made that I can use to refinish these small areas? I do not like
the finish but I do not want to re-finish the entire vault and can
live with it if I can make the repair.
Not to disagree, but I've had good luck with the small spray cans matching
texture just fine. Matching the color is a different matter, you'll want to
repaint when you are done with the patch. For best results, spray two coats
of latex. You can also try a roller, but THAT is a messy proposition since
the popcorn will come off on it, and then fall on you, on the floor, and
Professional drywaller's (patch) use a funny pump that you fill with the
'popcorn' and it 'sprays' on the ceiling. It matches incredibly well. I've
seen the spray cans in action too, and they work well also.
