Funky Ceiling


Came across this the other day and before I try and fix it I think it would be best to understand what happened. I think it was a level 5 tape job and maybe it was painted before it was dry.
I just cant figure how they could have sanded it flat enough to paint and yet the mud didnt bond at all to the sheetrock

No tape on the seams? Looks like the mud didn't even stick to the nails?

Re: Funky Ceiling


I was thinking the same thing. It looks like a garage and may not have the same kind of heating. If it was just painted over damp mud it would mean most all the corners would fail as that is where it was most wet and if neither of those , then it is water damage that wasn't ever attended to,, because some people only fix stuff when it is really really obvious. It may still be leaking.

Re: Funky Ceiling


it is a garage there was no water damage from above, just complete seperation of the joint compound from the sheetrock. I guess it could have frozen

Re: Funky Ceiling


Wow!!

Looks like no drywall primer was used either. What a mess! When the paint comes off in sheets, it usually means no primer. Did the mud maybe dry too much before applying it to the substrate? Is the sheetrock old or new? If it's old, it may have needed a primer too.
