We can remove your popcorn ceiling texture and replace it with our specialty “hand trowel” texture. It has a smoother look than a “knockdown” and is not as busy. In most cases it is more reasonable in cost than a “knockdown” and has a warmer, more custom, finished look.

Don’t hesitate to ask a question to get all the necessary information!

There are three main options for a final finish.

  • The first option would be to go to smooth. This is the most expensive because it requires the most work to achieve.
  • The second option would be to go to a “knock down dash” or what some people call an “orange peel” texture.
  • The third option and by far the most popular for us is a “plaster hand trowel” texture. Our clients love it because it looks great and has a very custom look. It is also the most reasonable in cost.

No. In most cases the ceiling can be restored by repairing and patching the worst areas and blending those areas into the rest of the ceiling.

Yes. We are experts at repair and patching of cracks permanently.

Skim coating is when a thin coat of either plaster or drywall compound is applied over the entire surface of the wall or ceiling to achieve a smooth, paint ready finish.

Yes. We are very good at matching the old school textures that were applied back in the early 1900’s.

We will come to your home, look at the project, discuss your options, and provide you with information about our company. We will also provide you with a written estimate and answer all of your questions. The estimate is free.

To John and his crew of outstanding craftsman. You’re truly the best in the business! Thank you for making time in your busy schedule for my project. I’m so grateful to all of you for your part in restoring my home. It looks fantastic!

John & Jeff, Thanks so much for the hard work. You guys did a great job and we appreciate it. You were 1 of 2 contractors that were easy to deal with. The rest was a nightmare! Thanks again.
Lakeville, MN
I LOVE IT! The stucco work for our chimney was even better than I imagined it would be. The finish put on there was very elegant, and the stucco color perfectly matches our home. As always, you are professional and everyone working for you is professional as well. Thank you so much!

We have all heard “Save the best for last”. Thanks to the masterful craftsmanship, work ethic and attention to detail you and your dedicated specialists made that a reality for Nancy and I. Working with you and your men made this project the very best part of the experience of building a new home. Thank you!
Phil & Nancy
I highly recommend United Wall Systems. I have had the pleasure to work with them on three separate occasions. From ceiling repair, to stucco repair, every project has left me completely satisfied. Kind, professional, trustworthy and tidy! I love working with these guys.
John and crew did a beautiful job start to finish. They showed up on time each day and worked hard until completing the work planned for the day, most days not even stopping for lunch. They gave me a walk through and progress report, as well as a plan for the next day before leaving. Very satisfied with the craftsmanship that they provided.
Great price and value. Great honesty and integrity. Great clean up. I am 100% satisfied and would recommend United Wall Systems to anyone looking to beautify and add value to their home.
I found John from United Wall Systems at the Minneapolis Home & Garden Show. John and his crew did a great job on the repairs and the stucco job. I did not shop around for a stucco company, a soon as I met John I felt he was the right person for me. I recommend United Wall Systems.
