Bathroom ceiling paint peeling

Bathroom ceiling paint peeling



 Hi, This is a bathroom ceiling. All of the ceiling is in the same condition. You can literally peel it off with your hands. I think it will all just peel off. What should I do in this instance? Just peel it all off?

Re: Bathroom ceiling

Hi @gloriavee,


Anything that can easily be peeled off needs to be removed. I'd suggest using a UNi-PRO 75mm Angled Heavy Duty Paint Scraper on an extension pole. If you manage to reach a section that is still well adhered, you can use Zinsser 0.95L Peel Stop Clear Binding Primer over it. However, it's best to remove as much of the delaminated paint as possible because anything that hasn't peeled off is likely to in the future.


You should find this step-by-step guide useful: How to paint a ceiling.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
