What is the best way to repair a ceiling that has water damage due to a leaky radiator in the room above? The drywall on the ceiling is wet and rotten, but isolated in a small spot. Do I need to hire a contractor? Do I need to replace the entire ceiling?
The drywall is 12x12 feet. Water damaged ceiling. It will required removal and replacement and painting.
We have drywall tape peeling off some of the ceilings/walls. What would be entailed when repairing this? I'd like to be prepared so I can be sure that the painter we hire will be doing what needs to be done and not a cover up job, nor creating more disruption to the walls than necessary. Thank you.
