Re: Peeling paint from ceiling
Many factors can make paint peel, high moisture/humidity, poor prep, incompatible paints (latex over oil is the most common one ). If the original paint is sound, then you can go ahead and repaint it, however, you'll want to wash it down with a TSP solution to etch and clean the surface, then you'll want to use a good primer, I'd suggest either Zinsser BIN or Kilz original (not Kilz 2 ). Once you apply two coats of primer, then follow up with two coats of your paint of choice, I'm partial to Kelly Moore and good quality name brands, over the offerings of a big box, but your mileage may vary.
