Types of Damage that Ceiling Repair Covers
There are many reasons why a ceiling might need a repair, but the most common reason is water damage. Roof leaks can drip onto the ceiling below, causing the ceiling to sag and eventually causing it to collapse. A constant drip from a leaking pipe above a ceiling will eventually cause a ceiling to collapse.
Properties with subsidence and other structural issues will most likely have cracked ceilings. Flood damaged properties in Wirral usually have to repair or replace a ceiling depending on the extent of the damage.
The Most Common Types of Ceiling Repairs
The most common types of ceiling repair in Wirral are cracks and small holes. Having to repair ceilings in Wirral is common because many of the properties were built over 100 years ago. A cracked ceiling is usually a symptom of aging.
If a ceiling has multiple long or wide cracks in the middle of the room, it is likely to be something much more serious. If the cracks in a ceiling are 1/16 (1.5mm) wide, you should call me right now on phone number to arrange to have it repaired.
Note: the usual cause of a cracked ceiling with dips is a structural beam collapsing. Subsidence could be the underlying issue that caused the beam to collapse in the first place.
The first step in ceiling repair is to find the original cause of the crack in the ceiling. Sometimes the cause of a cracked ceiling is blatantly obvious, and other times it can be not easy to detect.
Common Questions Related to Ceiling Repair in Wirral
How can I cover a stain on a water damaged ceiling?
Covering a stain on a water damaged ceiling will depend on the size of the stain. If it’s only a small ceiling stain, you should allow the area to dry out before applying a good stain block. Once the stain block has dried, you can apply paint. It’s possible to paint over minor ceiling stains, but many water-damaged ceilings require a ceiling repair before using paint.
How quickly can you repair a water damaged ceiling?
The time it takes to repair a water damaged ceiling depends on the source of the damage. If a leaking roof damaged the ceiling, it makes sense to repair it before attempting to repair it. We can fix the ceiling once the affected area is completely dry.
Which is the best type of ceiling to have? Plasterboard or lath and plaster?
A plasterboard ceiling and a lath and plaster ceiling both come with their own benefits. A lath and plaster ceiling is a much more breathable material and is better at regulating moisture. A plasterboard ceiling costs a lot less and is easier to install and repair.
Is a cracked ceiling a sign of subsidence?
Not necessarily. Shrinkage and settlement of the usual cause of ceiling cracks. It’s common for aging properties to have cracked ceilings, but it’s not necessarily caused by subsidence. If you have doors or windows that are difficult to open and close, these are typical warning signs of subsidence. If you suspect you have subsidence, you should contact a structural engineer.
How can I tell if my ceiling is safe?
The only way you can surely know if your ceiling is safe or not is by getting a professional opinion. We can assess your ceiling free of charge and let you know if it is safe or not. If the ceiling is hazardous, we can secure the ceiling to stop it from collapsing.
