Do it yourself ceiling repair
Any traditional ceiling with time begins to lose its appeal and therefore in need of repair. Consider how to do it according to all the rules of modern construction. First you need to clean the ceiling base of the peeling fragments of whitewash, putty and plaster. All bumps can be eliminated with spatulas or chisels, and the cracks can be cleaned with metal brushes.
Next, the ceiling must be well primed with a special primer with deep penetration. This composition will increase adhesion (setting of the solution to the surface of the ceiling).
At the next stage, you need to dot, with the help of spatulas, fill up the potholes with cracks. Then you need to apply starting putty to align large irregularities. All this mixture should be gradually spread over the base of the ceiling.
When developing the design of the cottage, ceilings also need to pay attention.
The thickness of the layer of putty should not exceed one centimeter. If it is necessary to apply another layer of putty, you need to wait until the first layer is completely dry. This layer must be applied in the opposite direction to the first.
If you are planning to paint the ceiling, then you need to level it with the help of finishing putty, which should be applied with a thin layer. After it dries, the base of the ceiling must be completely sanded with emery cloth. Before painting, the surface of the ceiling should be covered with a primer.
Of course, leveling the ceiling with a putty is a laborious and tedious business, so it is better to entrust it to specialists if possible.
