Are your walls looking a little blah? Then you might want to add an interesting texture to liven them up a bit. While the application may be more complicated than other texture options, Spanish Drag, a form of knock-down texture, has been a popular choice among homeowners for years. Read on to learn more.
Costs for this project depend on the type of drywall you purchase, as well as the cost of labor. Because Spanish Drag texture is a multiple-step process, we recommend hiring a skilled drywall professional for the job. You can get free estimates from a local contractor here.
After the Spanish Drag wall texture is properly sealed, keep it clean with a damp rag. Use a household cleaner for tougher stains.
It is accomplished through first spraying the texture with a texture hopper (a texture sprayer attached to an air compressor). The texture is allowed to set, and then a very large trowel (up to two feet in width) is used to spread and knock-down the texture.
Yes, as with most other drywall texture options, Spanish Drag should be sealed with a high-quality primer once it’s dry. This will make it longer-lasting and easier to clean.
The Spanish Drag method of applying texture has been gaining popularity in the past 20 years or so.
