Project Tips, Where To Use Spray Knockdown Finish

Spray Knock Down Finish is similar to a stucco drywall finish. However, it is a bit smoother and is often done on horizontal surfaces. The acrylic concrete material is highly popular because it holds its knockdown texture and maintains a cool temperature even after hours of sun exposure.

Here are some areas where you can use a spray knockdown finish:

Pool Deck


A pool deck is the most common concrete surface where a spray texture would be most applicable. This is probably the most comfortable for a swimmer’s bare feet of all the pool deck texture coatings available today.

It has enough texture to prevent slips and falls. Plus, it stays cool enough to prevent burnt foot soles. Although it comes in various colors, make sure to choose one in a lighter hue for better heat-reflectivity.

This is also highly recommended for commercial pools, water parks, etc.



A concrete patio is also a great place for spray-down concrete resurfacing. The look of a trowel finish is elegant enough to enhance the aesthetics of the outdoor living space but subtle enough to make other features and elements stand out.

This is an ideal concrete coating for roofless or open patios. The great thing about this coating is that it can be scored or engraved if you want a more customized look or add room for the concrete slab to expand.

Do you know how burnt wheel rubber leaves ugly marks on the driveway? This can be prevented with a knock-down finish. Because the knockdown texture on concrete stays 30% cooler, it keeps rubber tires from melting or breaking down.

If you think it is too plain to improve curb appeal, you can match it with a stamped concrete border or frame to make the driveway more interesting. Alternatively, you can stain the spray knockdown finish with a color that matches or complements its surroundings.



Be it a walkway to the garden or the front entryway to your house, it needs to look good and function better. Although more popular as a pool deck knockdown finish, this spray texture system is ideal for almost any outdoor surface.

It promotes undeniable slip resistance, is very easy to clean and maintain, and is durable enough to last a couple of years or more, depending on usage.
