Customer Questions & Answers

How well will this work for applying knockdown texture to my ceiling?

I know that Homax sells a knockdown/orange-peel spray made for ceilings, but the ratings weren't great and the Pro Grade formula sounds better, although it is made for walls. Will it spray upward well for application to my ceiling?
Asked by: Davey
After the failure of using the Wall Knockdown product on ceiling, I was referred by a Homax technical support to purchase the Pro Grade Wall Knockdown Texture product instead. Since there are so many negative reviews about the Pro Grade product, I'm afraid Pro Grade will fail on me again. I'm going to return it to Home Depot. If Homax Pro Grade Wall Knockdown Texture (#HMX4565) is not designed for ceiling application, then, which Homax product will work for ceiling? Does Home Depot carry it? What is the product #?

Can I use this product on exterior surfaces?

Asked by: GrandpaBob
No. It is basically spackle.

Can this knockdown be used over dried spackle that was used to patch a hole in a wall?

Asked by: SpringGardener
Yes. I recommend sanding the area down first before applying the texture.

approximately how long does it take to set before paint

thinking about using for the first time for a small repair but I'll be on a time crunch and I know I mix to fit time restraint before paint just don't want to set up a hopper for such a small job but fairly spread out job
Asked by: eddy
The can said about an hour, but I still had wet spots 12 hours later. There's 70% humidity right now.

25 oz. Pro Grade Dual Control Water-Based Wall Knockdown is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 51.

I shook the heck out of it with the can inverted, adjusted the pattern on some cardboard, sprayed the wall, and knocked it down at about the 20 minute mark. I missed a spot, so I sprayed it and immediately knocked it down with a wet knife. It worked well both ways. It does tend to make bubbles in the larger glops that leave rings behind when they burst, but is pretty good for fixing things the kids break around the house. I'm an average DIY guy, and I have to say I was pretty tickled with the results after reading many negative reviews. The tip to clean the tip out while holding the can upside down in water was also very, very helpful. I'll just keep this $20 can on the shelf until the next time...

Temperature of the can is vital. If you can't get the mud to flow it's too cold. I put the can in a pot of very warm water for about 10 minutes and it flows great providing you 2. keep the can shaken. If the can is too hot the mud will come out soupy. Put it in the fridge for a few minutes. I have also found if you tilt the can 45 degrees it will empty more of the can. I did a small remodel in our kitchen so I had to spray about 15 feet of wall board. It came out great.

The result was far from what is described. I suspect the can was defective as if I were to follow the can's instructions and hold 18" from the wall the product would not project that far. Can was shaken much more that the directions said and product was at room temperature - 70 F. It made a texture, but that texture is certainly not "orange peel". I gave product a "2" rating only because I did use it as I needed the wall finished. I was disappointed in the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth a try I used this product to texture a few smaller walls that we replaced. Overall this product does a good job but it will be very difficult to match typical knockdown texture. Here are a few tips: 1- spray on pretty thick, otherwise not much is left on the wall 2- I left it on the wall for 4-5 minutes before knocking down. This lets it dry enough so that it doesnt all smooth out. 3- Be very light with the kockdown knife. 4- Make sure you cover adjacant areas. This stuff really sprays everywhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No! Don't do it!! Can says it covers 75 square feet. I figured the one 8x5 wall should be covered. Can didn't get five square feet. After three cans I gave up. Texture is not matching at all and after painting texture is non existent. Save time and use anything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage! Spent 20 bucks to put runs on my wall when can did spray. Waist of money and my time cleaning the wall back off!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased, but read for full understanding I purchased this product to restore a 12"x76" section of drywall that was replaced in a kitchen after removal of tile, and outlet relocations required the removal of the section. I watched several YouTube videos of this product to gain knowledge of it and how it worked before I purchased it. I read some of the reviews and saw folks had some difficulties, so here is what I learned about using the product. First, read the packaging thoroughly. Re-read to make sure you understand exactly what the instructions say. Shake the can upside down. If you think you shook enough, shake some more. Even after that, shake a little bit more. Depending on the size of your job, work in small sections. Each time you do a section, shake the can again for several minutes. Intermittent mixing is necessary. You must allow 1-2 minutes once the product is on the wall to "dry". How humid your work area is will have an impact on this time. The more humid it is, a little more time is necessary before knocking down. You will have to gauge this as you work. Spray from a distance minimum of 6-8". Do not get closer or you will "blob" up the works and it will not perform as stated on the can. Work in an up and down motion, in columns. Once finished in your section, wipe the nozzle but be careful not to hit the trigger or more your settings. Use a flat blade knockdown trowel around 6-8 inches. Dip the trowel in warm water, and shake the water excess off, but make sure the blade is still wet. It should have a sheen of water on it, no more than that. Lay the trowel as parallel to the wall surface as you can and let the handle simple lay in "U" of your thumb and pointing finger socket. Let the natural weight of the trowel do the work. No force is necessary. Let the trowel come down and it will knock the sprayed material down very nicely. You will know if you pressed too hard if the sides of the trowel caused a line mark as you travel down the wall area. No problem. Move the trowel over so that 1/3 of the trowel overlaps the line where the knockdown ended on the previous pass, and repeat the process. It will smooth itself out. Here are pictures of the finished result. You cannot tell the difference between the original knockdown and the replacement. It blends in perfectly. I did have other areas to do on adjacent walls in the kitchen which were equal to the 12"x76" drywall I replaced. The 25% can had less than a quarter can left when I was done. Application was MEDIUM and according to instructions. I believe the stated area coverage on the can is a little overstated, as the manufacturer's application style may not be the same as yours. Judge your job accordingly and purchase what you need. You can always return to your Home Depot any unused, undamaged product, in original sale condition for a refund. I hope this review helps someone who needs to do his/her repair job. Take your time, read the instructions, shake, shake, shake, work in small areas. Do not rush, but take your time, and your project will come out like a pro.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's OK but just watch it. I have used this product several times. I am a professional and do drywall texture patches and repairs all the time. I use this product only when I have a small patch job to do. It's sometimes allot easier than getting out the compressor, mixing the mud for the hopper, cleaning up etc. for a small patch. Since it is the knockdown, it is the most difficult to apply of all the aerosol texture style products offered. I don't care what the directions say, if you wait the 1 to 2 minutes to knock it down, you will have a mess on your hands. It takes WAY longer than that to be ready. Then you need to use a VERY light knockdown to test the hardness of the texture and increase pressure as needed to get the desired result. Several times I have just scraped it off and started over because it was way too thin to knock down. All in all though it is a handy product. Just expect some time to get used to it.
