A lot of people out there in Toronto and Edmonton have issues to do with their ceiling stucco. Of all these people, most will try to actually fix the problem on their own which might turn out to be successful or just a fail altogether. It is important to actually understand the many variables that are associated with stucco and especially its repair and installation. It wears very many faces depending on where it has been used including a bumpy stucco ceiling, coarse and heavy grained, sparse and fine grained or dense and fine grained.
The best option that you have and which will guarantee a professional ceiling stucco job is to contract a professional sprayer man who has specialized in stucco application.
Professional Toronto and Edmonton ceiling stucco sprayers are able to analyze a ceiling and determine the best stucco texture for your ceiling stucco which will guarantee you of a very consistent ceiling. These professionals are able to work their way through your ceiling with a pray jet nozzle that he or she constantly adjusts so that the resulting spray jet is fine depending on the area that he or she is working on. They also pray around with the amount of water which determines the thickness of the mixture. It is important to run some background checks on the sprayer of choice as their expertise and experience also comes in handy.
Ceiling stucco that has to undergo repairs has to have a base which is pretty good. It is important to get rid of any valleys or lumps that might be in your ceiling prior to applying the stucco. This is because the valleys and lumps will still show even after the application of the stucco spray. The base will determine how the end result will be and so it is important that you try and iron it out so that the end result is as smooth as possible. Once the base is pretty smooth, you can go ahead and apply the stucco spray for a nice even finish.
While the ceiling stucco is still wet, you can take a plastering blade and run it over the stucco lightly so that the end result of the ceiling stucco is a modern rock. Professional stucco sprayers will also ask you if you want to throw in some small paint amount into the mixture of stucco so that you are able to paint it with latex paint anytime in the future. It hardens the ceiling stucco finish so that the latex paint when applied later on will be able to stick. Stucco that is unpainted is pretty hard to paint with latex paint. What will happen is that the stucco will dissolve. The only other alternative that you will have is to apply some oil based paint.
