Default Popcorn Ceiling Repair

Hello, I have a small patch on my popcorn ceiling that was damaged due to a water leak. The area is about 10 by 2 inches. Does anyone have a recommendation for a contractor who can do a decent job to try to blend the patch to the rest of the popcorn ceiling?

can you post a pic of the patch? how to do it, and who you need, depends on what you have.

Usually they recommend shooting the whole ceiling again since you will see the blend.

Sorry OrleansMom, if you want it done so you never see the patch job or can't tell at all, you will have to smooth out the whole ceiling and reapply the popcorn (or just keep it smooth and repaint!) I have never ever seen a popcorn patch done where it has blended so well you can hardly tell.

I had a similar problem a few years before. All I did was to buy the popcorn ceiling paint spray from Home Depot and sprayed on the damaged area, blending as much as I could. It was not that much visible. Just recently we got the house painted and got the ceiling painted as well. The patch is gone 100%. Hope that helps.

I found using popcorn spray for a small area can be very messy, I ended up
spraying the popcorn mix into a small pail and apply the patch area using a paint brush.

Behr makes a popcorn paint that you can apply with a sponge. Fairly inexpensive and should do what you want it to do.

Sponge

Paint/Popcorn

Not sure if they sell a smaller size. My wife did an entire ceiling by hand with the sponge and it looked pretty good. Renting a sprayer and then paying the cleaning charge doesn't make sense for the size you are looking at imo

Agree on sponge type product for a smaller area like that.
