A step-by-step DIY guide to repainting ceilings
STEP 1: Remove any peeling paint from the ceiling using a Hamilton’s scraper and sand back to a smooth surface.
STEP 2: If the ceiling has mould, use household bleach and scrub the ceiling well to remove and kill the mould. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
STEP 3: Cracks or imperfections on the ceiling can be filled with Polycell Ready Mixed Crack Filler. Patch prime the filler with Plascon Plaster Primer.
STEP 4: Any gaps between cornices and ceilings can be filled with Polycell Acrylic Filler. This filler is flexible and will allow some movement between the different surfaces.
STEP 5: Apply 1 coat of Plascon One Coat Ceiling Paint – now with a new whiter, brighter formulation.
TIP: For ease of painting, use a Hamilton’s roller extension. No need for ladders.
