Like Leisure Suits, Textured Ceilings & Walls should be Abolished From Memory
Sure, there is a time and place for texture. For instance, fashion would be dull if textured fabrics were taken out of the picture. Velour, corduroy, silk… Some fabrics are so texture-rich it’s hard not to pet the velvet-draped stranger beside you (sidenote: do not pet this person!).
When it comes to your house, though, texture is usually applied to distract you from the fact that the ceilings or walls were not finished properly. That’s right, not only does ceiling and wall texture make your house look like it disco danced out of the 1970s, but it’s often used to cut corners. After all, it’s easier for a builder to just spray some lumpy guck everywhere instead of finishing the ceilings and walls to a smooth surface. And for some reason, this hideous look caught on.
The exteriors of homes haven’t escaped this texture-induced frenzy either. Often, exterior stucco has been “finished” to an absurdly rough coating. Stalagmites on cave floors? Amazing. Stalagmites applied horizontally to the exterior of your house? Not so much.
“Dahling, you must come see my fabulous ceiling texture” — Said No One Ever
Have you ever gone to the show home of an upscale real estate project? You’ve probably noticed that there is almost never ceiling texture or wall texture (inside or out). They know that a house has a better chance of selling, and for more money, if the surfaces are smooth and perfectly finished. If you browse Houzz for luxury interiors you will see that there is not a trace of texture to be found. But, if you’re not in the market for an upscale show home and you’re not ready for a Houzz-worthy interior renovation, with texture removal you can still get a professional, smooth finish on your ceilings and walls.

Smoothing exterior stucco walls is not often thought of when it comes to renovations and home improvements. Exteriors are sometimes overlooked here in the rainy Lower Mainland, where we tend to spend the majority of our time inside. We watch TV, read and browse the internet all from our cozy living rooms. When thinking about improving our homes, we flip through magazines (or browse Pinterest obsessively!) showcasing granite counter tops and gas ranges in the kitchen, or luxurious marble steam showers in the bathroom. But when was the last time you took a critical look at the exterior of your house? Could it use a bit of polishing to really shine? The exterior is the facade you present to the world (or at least to the neighbours out for their evening stroll). Shouldn’t it reflect your style as much as the inside of your home does?
Outdoor Living Made Perfect
Summer is the perfect time to focus on exteriors. Evenings and weekends are spent lounging in backyards and barbecuing on patios.
A simple thing like smoothing exterior stucco walls can give your home a makeover that will make sipping lemonade or frosty beer in the summer heat that much more enjoyable. A Coquitlam family contacted us about their stucco covered exterior walls. The homeowner is a home decorator and had designed a beautiful outdoor living area for her family to spend their summer evenings. However, the stucco just wasn’t in harmony with the rest of the design. They called us to remove it. It was a minor renovation that only took a few days, but it really improved the look and feel of the space. The last piece of her design puzzle was smoothing exterior stucco walls.
