Holes in ceiling

Holes in ceiling

IMG_20200408_154603.jpg

I have recently noticed small screw holes appear in the ceiling  ofmy house. They aren't random but in a straight line. The holes look like screw holes. Please can someone advice what might be the cause, should i get someone to inspect the roof asap  (I am scared if I don't pay attention now it might lead to further damage) or can  I wait till the situation  gets back to normal.

Can you please tell us a little more about your house? Do you know when it was built? Have the ceilings been replaced recently?

Re: Holes in ceiling

picture doesnt come up to well on my phone, it's probs the studs holding the gyprock over time they can move or shrink alittle causing the screws to break the surface 

 

alittle patch filler over the holes will normally remedy this easily :smile:

Re: Holes in ceiling

I have no plastering experience.

But...

You describe them as "holes" = cavitys?

Therefore the gyprock is coming away from the ceiling - in a newish house.

Every room?

Re: Holes in ceiling

Yes it's in every room. The holes aren't deep but a little paint coming out from the ceiling.
