What is Spray Trowel Finish?
Spray texture system is a very popular type of coating. It is often used on newly installed concrete surfaces and even on previously resurfaced patios, pool decks, and driveways. This type of knock-down finish features a textured surface that helps increase traction on any surface. This is applied as an ⅛ inch microtopping either splattered on the surface or sprayed with a hopper gun. This is then knocked down with a trowel to create a textured surface that does not hurt underfoot. This coating can come pre-colored or it can be colored integrally while it is being mixed. It can also be stained or dyed after it has been knocked down.
Benefits of a Spray Knockdown Finish
Of all decorative concrete solutions, a knockdown texture is one that provides a lot of special benefits that floor owners would surely love:
Slip-resistant – This is the key selling point for a spray texture finish. The stucco-like texture it has, as a product of spraying and troweling, provides enough traction to keep people or vehicles from slipping. This is one reason it is one of the most highly recommended pool deck resurfacing options.
Aesthetic – Being one of the top decorative concrete solutions, its ability to improve the look of any plain concrete surface is a given. The texture creates a unique look on the surface. It comes in a variety of colors and it can be customized with color stains and dyes if the homeowner decides to color it after installation.
Heat reflective – Home and commercial property owners have testified that this pool deck knock down finish has the ability to stay cooler to the touch than any other paving materials out there. The coating reflects light outwards instead of absorbing it. Any swimmer who wishes to walk barefoot will not have trouble doing so with this cool spray knock-down texture, perfect for the summer.
Cost-effective – Compared to tearing out the concrete slab and replacing it with a new concrete mix, a spray trowel finish is a lot more affordable. It restores the existing concrete slab and only ⅛ of an inch is needed to renew the surface of the concrete patio, pool deck, or driveway.
Durable – This thinly sprayed coating is durable enough to protect the concrete slab underneath. It provides a long-lasting surface that can survive most types of damages, such as scratches, holes, and more.

How to Install Knockdown Texture on Concrete
It is strongly recommended to leave the installation process to a licensed concrete contractor. However, it is also important for homeowners to have an idea of what the application process involves. Here is a rough look at how pool deck, patio & concrete driveway contractors install spray texture:
Step 1: First, the concrete surface is evaluated to check if it is structurally stable for a spray-down concrete resurfacing. If any damage is found, appropriate repairs are applied first.
Step 2: The concrete surface is cleaned and air-dried properly to ensure proper adhesion.
Step 3: The coating is mixed in accurate ratios to make sure that it cures effectively. It is important that the installer is trained for this as too much water can make the coating weaker when dry.
Step 4: The spray coating is then sprayed using a hopper gun. This is a gravity-fed equipment, powered by an air compressor, that makes it easier to lay down spray-down systems.
Step 5: Make sure that the surface of the concrete is between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The coating is then sprayed evenly and consistently for a more uniform finish.
Step 6: A trowel is then used to knock the sprayed coating down. Just enough to remove the point uneven tips of the sprayed material and creating a textured finish similar to a stucco drywall.
Step 7: A concrete sealing product is then applied on the surface of the cured coating to protect it from penetrating elements and to give it a bit of shine.
