We have a room where the ceiling has had some water damage and had made the paint in that area bubble and flake. We have taken a majority of the flakes off, however now we are stuck with a ridge between the painted surface and the unpainted surface. Sanding doesnt seem to be working, and painting over it doesnt hide it. I've been told you need to take off all the paint before you plaster.
Any suggestions for a quick and easy fix to this problem?Do you know how to take flakey paint off a ceiling?
If you've scraped off all the loose paint, just spackle it. Let dry, sand down till it's smooth then repaint it. You can buy spackle at any hardware, home improvement store, Wal-Mart or K-Mart.Do you know how to take flakey paint off a ceiling?
I hope you took the time to fix the leak in the roof!, or if the room is under a bath room. You may have to make a dry wall plug. then Spackle, sand paint. Water maybe coming in and flowing along your ceiling from another area. check your insulation for wetness. good luck
Paint remover and a brush and a scraper will do the trick quite quickly
No its not true to taking off the paint., sand it lightly, then take sheet rock mud, and apply the mud over the present area %26amp; let dry. If you have a bad whole or cracks, take tape and then apply sheet rock mud over the tape, let dry, roughly sand, then paint it. There is a new gauze type tape that is great for this., patching made simple. You just keep working with it, until you get the desired look you want.
