Textured drywall patches in a flash—and the cleanup is even faster
Held each May in Las Vegas, The National Hardware Show is where buyers from hardware stores, lumber yards, and home centers go to see the latest and greatest tools and products being pitched by the companies that make them.
The EZ-Pro Texture Sprayer is fast becoming the GO-TO sprayer for your smaller patch and repair texture jobs. It also happens to be one of the easiest texture sprayers on the market to clean, hands down. Spray perfect Orange Peel and Knockdown Texture from the same tip, with 2 simple PSI settings and with virtually zero set-up or clean-up. EZ Pro Texture is ideal for interior drywall texturing on your patch, repair and smaller remodels, and the subsequent texturing. With this system you can spray the lightest Orange Peel, as well as a heavy Knockdown, all from the same tip/sprayer and bag of texture. The Wagner electric texture gun and a hopper gun setup that construction guys use to spray rooms. These failed, I returned both. I saw this Ez-Pro on Amazon and took a gamble and bought it and am happy with it. The EZ-PRO TEXTURE spray gun operates with a compressed air hose that can be any length. Best of all, it only takes an ounce of water to clean the gun when you finish your project. The Hottest New Texturing System for Patch and Repair on the Planet!
Ez Texture Pro Drywall Tool
The 2016 show was particularly good, with more interesting new tools and products than I have seen in years past. Some recently came out, some are scheduled for release later this year, and some are concepts in search of buyers—years away from being produced or fated to never be produced at all.
Here is another sneak peek at what you would have seen if you had been able to go to the show, which is open only to members of the NRHA (North American Retail Hardware Association) and select media.
EZ-Pro Texture System
I know from experience what a pain it is to make small repairs to textured drywall. Do you use a hard-to- clean hopper gun or that expensive texture-in-a-can that rarely produces a perfect match? The EZ-Pro System is an alternative to both; it’s an air gun that connects to a premixed bag of texture.
Compressed air blows the material and the operator controls flow by squeezing the bag. Partially used bags can be removed, capped, and saved for later use.
Results are on par with those from a hopper gun but cleanup is easier; spray an ounce or two of water through the gun and you’re done.
The gun goes for $80; texture for orange peel or knockdown is $8 per bag.
