Mr. Johnson had called a plumber to repair a leaking copper pipe. The damaged pipe had been leaking for a long time and the entire ceiling was soggy. The local plumber punctured the ceiling just enough to repair the copper tee pipe was replaced and soldered. Mr. Johnson called my repair service to repair and paint his dining room ceiling. The catch was the job had to be done in one day because the family was leaving to New Mexico the next day.
This post shows the seven steps to prime and paint the dining room ceiling.
