Types of Ceiling Damage
There are a variety of indicators that can be a sign of water damage
Ceiling stains: Ceiling stains are always a sign that something is wrong. They can range is size and colouration but luckily they are often quite noticeable, especially when contrasted with a bright, white ceiling.
Bowed ceilings: Dipping ceilings can often be an indicator of a buildup of water on you in the ceiling which should demand immediate attention.
Soft/damp drywall: If your plasterboard ceiling has a spongy texture and if you can easily use your fingers to push it in then that’s a clear sign of water damage.
Peeling paint: Paint will begin to peel eventually but unless you haven’t painted your ceiling in decades then any peeling, cracking and flaking could be an indicator that something is wrong.
Ceiling Water Damage Issues to Consider
One reason why DIY is not the optimal solution is that there are many factors to consider when dealing with water damaged ceilings besides the ceiling itself. Here are some of the other considerations that might need to be made.
Water source: Before beginning repair work it’s important that the initial source of the water damage is fixed. Failing to this will lead to further water damage later on.
Flooding/ standing water: From minor patches to large scale flooding, standing water is another thing that will need to be taken care of.
Wet and damaged joists: If the leak had the capability to damage the ceiling, it may also have caused damage to the wooden joists as well. If this is the case, they will need to be repaired before the ceiling.
Mould: Wet areas are hotspots for mould growth. If the area had remained wet for a long time there may be significant buildup of mould which should be cleared before starting ceiling repairs.
