My son just purchased a new home and it has heating in ceiling in this all electric home.It has a big crack in one section of ceiling about 4 or 5 foot long.He said the seller of the home told him they have fixed it several times but it continues to come back.
My question to you is what needs to happen to fix it so it won't come back?Also what precautions needs to be taken ,because of electrical wiring in ceiling that radiates the heat.In repairing this how much compound can you use in repairing crack so as not to compromise the heating effects?
I have an idea that durabond and tape needs to be used ,but it's the final coat that's in question.I don't think you can coat it several times like you would a normal joint.I do believe that the coats of compound must be very thin.Your input on this would be greatly appreciated on this and I know you wouldn't send Tom to Pennsylvania to fix it for him or would you?..........Dave
