“Help. My ceiling is peeling!”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten this call from clients who just don’t know what to do with their old damaged ceilings.
Why is ceiling paint peeling?There are several factors that can cause paint to peel on a ceiling. It could be because of a water leak, smoke, a fire, being exposed to high humidity, or simply wear and tear from old age. Luckily, no matter the cause the repairing process for peeling paint on ceiling is the similar. You will need to remove all of the flaking/peeling paint/paint blisters, fill and plaster the surface, sand it until smooth, prime seal the damaged areas, then apply a new coat of paint. And as always, we here at Home Painters Toronto are here to help with this process.
Before you get started, remove all of the furniture from the room. If you can’t do this, move it all to the middle of the room and spread drop sheets over them. Tape the drop sheets to the base of the furniture and tuck the corners under any legs to be sure that all surfaces are well protected. Use drop sheets on the floor as well – whether it’s hardwood, laminate, or carpet, no one likes cleaning up paint spills!
Now your ceiling is patched and ready! See our video on “How to Paint a Stucco Ceiling” for details on how to do this as well.
