The typical types of damage requiring repair usually result from a leaky roof where water drips down and settles above your ceiling. If there is a considerable amount of water sitting for a while, the water will eventually seep through and cause the ceiling to leak. Ultimately, this water damage results in a rust or dark colored stain that is unmistakable from view. The other type of damage requiring ceiling repair is due to the house “settling,” which all homes experience. Weather and temperature changes can cause the house materials to either contract or expand and this can result in serious cracks in your ceiling. The house may also shift slightly on soil when it’s extremely wet or dry. It’s a very common thing to see an older home with cracks from one end of the room to another. It is normal for a house to settle but unfortunately, the result is oftentimes cracks. These cracks can be very narrow, almost spider-like cracks in numerous areas in the rooms especially in corners, or you can get very large, thick cracks from one end of the room to the other.
When ceilings need repair due to water damage or cracking, it’s important to address these issues before they get worse. Tackling a ceiling repair project is recommended sooner than later as putting if off can lead to far more costly repairs or eventual structural damage.

One of the things few property owners think about is their ceiling. That is, not until it’s hard to ignore due to damage or it looks terrible. If you’ve ever seen how bad water damage stains and cracks can look on a ceiling, you will understand. Typical ceilings are constructed of lath and plaster, or drywall. Each type of ceiling requires a different approach for repair.
Ceiling Cork - Materials
Ceilings vary from home to home. The type of ceiling material used depends primarily on the age of the home. Ceilings can be made of drywall or more than likely in older homes, plaster. To make proper repairs, it usually requires a professional to do the work for long-lasting results. Special equipment and care need to be applied so the ceiling won’t re-crack. Cracks are tricky and require a professional eye and touch to blend seamlessly and for long term results. The JM Renovation Company is an expert source for any needed ceiling repair.
Ceiling Cork Procedure
The method to repair drywall ceilings is straightforward and requires removing and replacing the damaged drywall portion of the ceiling. For plaster ceilings and depending on the extent of damage, it can take 1 to 2 days for ceiling repair, with about 3 days for the plaster repair to dry well enough for sanding and painting. With any type of repair, there will be a fair amount of dust because of tearing out the damaged ceiling portion for repair. Once the repair has been made and the ceiling has been allowed to dry, a coat of primer and paint is required to complete the project. It’s amazing how a seemingly simple ceiling repair can make such an incredible difference in a room!
As true with any type of repair you make to a property, a ceiling repair increases the property’s value. In most cases, this type of repair requires a professional company with the proper tools and know-how to make the repair properly, it’s an investment that will result in increased value and pay dividends well worth the cost and time of making the repairs. When you enter a room and the walls and ceiling are in pristine condition, it says a lot about how the property has been maintained and sets the backdrop for everything else that goes into the room. By starting with a perfectly smooth ceiling, it’s a matter of paint and décor to complete the room.
