Texture In A Can
Question: I live in a new house that is only a few years old, and I’m having to fix some settling cracks in my ceiling. The problem is that my ceiling has a textured pattern that I can’t imitate. How do I fix this? (Frank, Columbus IN)
Answer: Textured spray in a can will often do the trick. However, after a bit of experimenting, if you cannot create a matching finish you may want to contact the original builder to find out who performed the finish work. Hiring a professional to make the repairs and re-do the textured may be the only answer. While it may seem like an unnecessary expense, a matching finish is a key in helping to maintain the quality and value of your home.
