My peeling bathroom ceiling


Postby pinkfairy » Tue Jan 20, 2009 6:50 pm

[b]hope someone can help :(

My bathroom consists of a shower (large tray same size as old bath) and wash basin. The fan extracts the steam.

Have new plastered ceiling, painted in viynal silk paint, with in 1 year the paint is peeling off in large sections (it did blister first) of the ceiling and have a black mould problem as well.
The room is tiled all wall , floor to ceiling with a tiled floor.

Can anyone please recommend a paint to do the ceiling in, that will stay on!!! :?:

pinkfairy,
Your ceiling should have been painted with a 50/50 emulsion/water mix first then painted with neat emulsion. Suggest you strip off the existing paint and start again preferably with a breathable emulsion.

pinkfairy,
Since you've done the 50/50 thing and its still peeling suggest you have a look in the loft and see if the insulation is missing or thin in the peeling areas.
You are going to have to cure the peeling (and its cause) before re-painting.
Try one of the kitchen/bathroom paints which are designed not to react to damp.
