It's time to redecorate the kitchen, and I'm looking with a critical eye at
where water came through the ceiling last year. It's causes a small sag in
the ceiling about 12" x 2".
I've pic a picture here :-
What's the easiest least hassle way to cure this ?
When the water leaked, it found the seam in the sheetrock, and detached the
bedding tape from the rock. Just cut away the sagging parts with a razor,
re-nail the sheetrock to the rafter, if necessary, and get some taping
repair fabric and mud it in, using several layers of plaster mix, letting it
dry overnight and light sanding between coats. Finally, texture and prime it
and your ready to paint.
Make sure whatever leaked is fixed, first.
That texture is going to be difficult to match.
I would save that first layer of paper with the texture on it and glue it
back in place after the drywall is repaired. Send a pic when you are done
