How Do You Fix Peeling Drywall On A Bathroom Ceiling?
Bathrooms are humid environments that can cause low-quality paint to peel. The peeling usually occurs high in the corners and on the ceiling where moisture collects. You can limit the repair to the peeling areas, but it’s better to repaint the entire ceiling. Peel off any loose paint. Use a scraper to remove large chips. Fill the exposed areas with joint compound. Use a trowel to smooth the compound to make it flush with the rest of the ceiling. Sand the joint compound. Get the surface as smooth as possible. Wipe the surface with a dry towel to remove dust and particles that remain from sanding. Apply the latex primer to the ceiling. Use thin coats to prevent dripping. Allow the primer to dry for at least six hours. Apply the bathroom paint. Allow it to dry for at least 24 hours, then apply a second coat.
