Ceiling Repairs

Written by on April 19, 2014 in Transformations with 1 Comment

When the paint job on a ceiling gets to be 20 years old, usually things start to deteriorate. The paint has long outlived its useful lifespan in most cases. Sometimes mildew sets in, sometimes water finds its way to them, and sometimes both. Here was a case of such a ceiling – badly water stained.

It’s hard to walk into a room and not notice this sort of thing. And, this is one of those situations that isn’t well suited to do it yourself repair. There are several steps involved in the cosmetic repairs, and many products in multiple coats to make an old ceiling look new again. It is best to call in a professional.

Ceiling repairs are one of the most common interior painting calls we get at Topcoat. We keep the drywall repair kit handy and ready to mobilize at all times, and a well stocked inventory of stain killing primers. And of course, dead flat ceiling paints designed to be spread with 18″ rollers.

Look carefully at the before and after photos. Our client was pleasantly surprised that their lakeside porch ceiling could be brought back to new condition quickly and cleanly by the Topcoat crew and its careful protection and dustless sanding practices.

Don’t trust ceiling repairs to just any painter. Call in the pros at Topcoat.
