Title of Question:

repairing ceiling after roof leak


Name: Nancy Childre  City:

Question: My ceiling is now stained where I had a roof leak. I wanted to fix myself now that the roof itself is repaired. How do I remove the stain and use the correct stippling. I am not sure what that stuff is that they spray on ceilings. This is now damaged and needs to look like the rest of the ceiling. Any suggestions?

Answer: The are stain blockers on the market but undercoat does the same job. As for the stipple cant help as only you know what is there.
