Mark Dunlap Painting LLC
Business owners in Waimea 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 Mark Dunlap Painting 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 Mark Dunlap Painting 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. Mark Dunlap Painting LLC's painters are very conscientious when it comes to being clean and tidy. We keep our work area clean and complete a full clean-up quickly after finishing the project.
Scheduling: Mark Dunlap Painting LLC provides you a high-quality result in as short a period of time as possible. We know having a painting company in your place of business can be inconvenient. We work with you on scheduling and make our best efforts to minimize the impact on your day-to-day life.
Get An Estimate: You deserve to know the cost of texture spraying and knockdown treatments with complete certainty. Some painting companies and painting contractors offer only a simple estimate, leaving the total price of supplies and the true cost of labor until the job is complete. That's not how it works with Mark Dunlap Painting LLC.
Our knockdown and textured spraying specialists conduct a comprehensive review of your project. Next, we provide you with a price including not just painting supplies or labor but the total cost of your knockdown or textured spraying project. As with any home improvement project there are unforeseen circumstances, but you can relax knowing Mark Dunlap Painting LLC will discuss any changes to our quote with you.

The quality of the job was excellent, preparation as well as painting itself. Communication from Mark was excellent. The painting was done as scheduled about 2 months from time of the bid and acceptance of the bid. Mark used the brand and sheen of paint that I requested, which was important to me.

Mark Dunlap in mid-late November 2022 painted the exterior of our Waikoloa Village home and did a wonderful job. He is a very personable, detailed-oriented professional. Would highly recommend Mark Dunlap for any painting-related services.
