Paint

how do you repair peeling ceiling paint

Had my kitchen painted about 5 years ago and over the years the paint has peeled away from the ceiling above the stove. Am I going to have to peel the entire ceiling?

postalkb,

 

I doubt that the whole ceiling will continue to peel. The fact that it is over the stove area indicates that poor adhesion is occuring, probably because the ceiling had surface contaminants such as oily cooking vapors in that area.

 

You will want to scrape the paint to the point where it appears to be tight. Wash and scuff sand the area which had pealed. "Feather" the edge of the pealed area with spackling compound and sand it smooth. Prime the entire area where it had pealed. Finally, paint the entire ceiling.

 

Hope this has helped.
