Sheetrock Finishing and Texturing

Sheetrock Finishing and Texturing comes in myriad sizes and shapes, but Commercial Drywall Dallas is a complete provider and capable of scaling our services to meet your exact needs.

As the leading local company for Sheetrock Finishing and Texturing in Dallas, we’ve made a name for ourselves by delivering consistent quality in a courteous and service-driven manner.

It’s not just a matter of how you finish your sheetrock, but also what material the sheetrock is made of. For example, if the Sheetrock has been roughed in with joint compound and then taped off before painting, this creates an opportunity for additional finishing work before texturing begins, depending on your preferred result and desired materials. 

Sheetrock finishing is a process that can take a number of days and may involve many people with expert drywall skills in order for the work to be done properly and to produce the best quality result. However, sheetrock does not always need an entire day of work because sometimes only one or two surfaces need to be finished and the amount of work will require less time. 

Our crews start the process by using a long-haired roller on areas where there are seams visible on the surface while spraying from both sides (about five feet away). The trick here is to roll quickly so as not to apply pressure but also enough technique so as not to leave any streaks behind which would ruin the appearance of your newly painted walls. This level of attention and detail required years of experience and expertise to produce professional results that will last for years to come. 

Wall Texture and Techniques

Sheetrock finishing and texturing comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, from flat to bumpy and all points in between. Modern trends are moving toward a decisively minimalistic look depending on color to bring rooms together. However, texture brings personality and can even fix mistakes or other difficult surfaces or help hide them from view.

There are a variety of sheetrock finishes and textures with specific techniques behind them that you can make before deciding whether to texture a wall in your commercial property or location.


1. Comb

The comb texture is produced using techniques that create lines of various widths and shapes in drywall compound. This technique is often used to produce a repeated series of arcing patterns on the drywall that may be referred to as “rainbow patterns” and is one of the more simplistic texturing techniques. This method requires drywall compound, a roller, and a drywall trowel that has evenly spaced teeth (or uneven teeth when we are going for a less organized pattern).

We start by applying a layer of drywall compound to the wall using the flat side of the trowel. We then create tap lines into the wet compound with the teeth on the corner of the trowel. Once we let it dry for 24 hours, we are then ready for priming and painting

2. Popcorn

Sheetrock, the material used to create the surface of a wall before painting or papering it, comes in different sizes and shapes for any need. Though popcorn ceilings are not typically made of sheetrock (they’re usually plaster), they can be found in many commercial spaces throughout the country, and are a surprisingly affordable option. 

The popcorn texture is a dry mix of drywall mud and polystyrene, which comes in a standard white color, so we always prime the wall or ceiling before use. We then mix the popcorn texture with water and make sure to securely cover all surfaces and items that are not to be sprayed. Once the rest of the room is properly covered, we continue spraying until the project is complete. One advantage of this drywall finish is that once the texture has dried, you can paint it any color you want!

3. Orange Peel

The texture of the orange peel has a distinctive look. It is important for us to prime the walls before applying this type of textured skin. We use a spray gun and compressor to mix drywall compound with water. Depending on the consistency required, we adjust the air valve to match a desirable spray pattern.

We then use a light touch when applying wall compound to create the desired texture. Once we feel comfortable with our spray pattern, we apply it to all of the walls, then we allow time for the compound to dry before priming and painting over it.

4. Knockdown

The knockdown technique creates a unique, rustic pattern. 

Knockdown can be achieved with the “orange peel” technique by adding one step – pressing the peaks and bumps that form in drywall compound using an 18-inch or wider, flat knife.

Sheetrock finishing and texturing has an array of sizes and shapes, but it is important to proceed with caution when beginning the process. We are always careful to wait 10 to 15 minutes before beginning drywall flattening in a smaller room, while a large room should be ready as soon as spraying has been finished. This is because if we flatten too early, knife lines will be left from the edges of the blade. After the orange peeling texture appears, we stop and wait another 5 or 10 minutes. Once we get to this point in the process, we begin to flatten the peaks in the orange peel texture and then leave it to dry overnight before completing the additional steps of priming and painting.

5. Sand Swirl

Sand swirl can add a fun, unique element to a room. To create this finish, we apply perlite, a special compound that is basically sand mixed into primer with a 7-inch-wide paintbrush using the handle rather than the bristles. We dip the brush a few inches into perlite, giving it a wipe on either side of the bucket, the swirl the pattern about 8-10 inchs at a time.

6. Slap Brush

A slap-on texture, also know as scratchboard or water-borne sisal is a technique that uses acrylic paint. There are many varying thicknesses and shapes of sheetrock available, but they all require the same basic application process to achieve a well-textured finish. We apply drywall compound to the front of the plunger-style texturing brush in a thin coating. We then hold the wall at an angle and start slapping sections with it, varying our technique as we go. The next step is to roll the next 5-foot area of the wall, apply the slap brushing to that section and repeat this process until we have completed the area.

7. Slap Brush Knockdown

A slap brush knockdown texture is a finishing technique that applies drywall compound to the surface as part of the texturing process. To apply this type of sheetrock requires use of a roller, slap brush, knockdown knife, and drywall compound.

With a texture roller, we apply the plaster until each wall has even coverage. For smaller rooms we wait 10 to 15 minutes before using the finish trowel and knocking down any peaks. If we notice bumps forming while slapping on the texture, we will stop and wait 5 to 10 minutes before proceeding to make sure we get the desired professional results. When beginning with newer walls, we start by knocking down the peaks in all surfaces that have been slathered. Once this is done, we allow them to dry for 24 hours before painting.
