How to repaint very damaged ceilings?

Question from Sandrine

Design response: scrape, reseal, apply a glass cloth and repaint

Hello Sandrine, you have just bought an apartment whose ceilings are very damaged. To renovate them, I advise you to scrape off the flaking paint, to open the cracks in length and in depth and to fill them well with a filler. If it is an old structure, the walls are called to move: I strongly advise you to put a glass cloth on the blocked cracks to avoid seeing them reappear. You will then sand and coat the canvas with a smoothing coating. You will apply a print coat and two top coats of your choice. This glass cloth will be completely invisible after painting and will guarantee you a crack-free ceiling over time! You too, send us your decoration question
