In the Ottawa region Texturing is becoming a thing of the past.

Re: Are the home builders in your region still want texture on the ceilings ?


I would guess 90% sprayed knockdown and 10% smooth ceilings in the Twin Cities Mn area. I only do work for about 6 custom builders all local. More expensive homes leaning toward smooth. I don't know about tract homes/national builders. No wall textures at all unless the homeowner is coming from a different region.

No texture here in Pennsylvania! We used to do lots of it, but haven't for 20-25 years or so.

All tract homes here in the Western US are spray knockdown. Even our airport here for Reno/Tahoe is skip trowel.

Colorado is west. And texture is usually a very light skip trowel if at all. No machine textures. At least not in western Colorado. Still some colored plasters. Although not as popular as it was ten years ago.
