Hi, my fiance and I just purchased our first home in Gainesville FL. we got it for a good price but the inside needed to be gutted. Now we are to the point of needing to get texture done on the interior. We got a quote for a knockdown texture and it was $1500.00 for a 1500 sq ft house (3 bed/2 bath). I just need to know if this is a reasonable price or not. Thanks!!!

Are you sure that you want knock down? We decided not to get it. Find a house with it and check the line where the ceilings and walls meet and where the wall meets the trim. The paint line will never be straight with knock down.

Is knockdown texture popular in your area? Here (PNW ) orange peel is fairly common and I have two textures in my home. They did the ceiling in knockdown and the walls in orange peel.

I understand what southgeorgiamom is referring to, but I have crown molding in my home and have not found it that difficult to cut in a straight line when I painted. Of course, it all depends on how heavy the knockdown is!

Get two more quotes to get an idea of pricing for your area. I would also suggest you ask to see some of their work.

Doesn't sound bad price wise. Is the house empty? If not be warned it is a VERY messy job. I did mine myself with a hopper gun and probably $40 worth of mix.

Painting and cutting in is a bit tougher but if the knockdown is not too heavy the lines are ok. I'm in CA, KD is pretty common out here.

Does the above quoted price include prime and paint of the ceiling?
