Can I Paint Over A Peeling Ceiling?
Yes, you can paint over a peeling ceiling. However, it’s important that you understand the peeling paint on the ceiling causes before you decide to paint over it.

If you don’t address the underlying issue, it’ll just come back and will require more work in the future.
Luckily, no matter the cause, the repairing process for peeling paint on a ceiling is similar. You will need to remove all of the flaking or peeling paint and fill and plaster the surface.
