Things to note before Repainting the Ceiling
If your existing concrete slab ceiling has issue like spalling concrete, peeling off paint, damaged ceiling board, you may need to get it fix prior to apply any new coat of paint. Treat the root cause of formwork before new paint work.
For the spalling concrete issue, you may need to get a specialist that know how to treat the problem instead of just get your painter cover up with any cement/ putty.
Surface preparation is crucial to ensure good bonding of the finishing paint and undercoat paint. Scrap off all the loose plaster/ paint coat and select a suitable sealer ( Oil base or water base) depend on the location. It is recommend to use oil pail seal ( moisture resistance primer) on the high moisture location like bathroom and kitchen or before the RC flat roof ( for the top floor owner).
Finishing Coat for the Ceiling
Most commonly in Singapore, the ceiling is painted in matt emulsion paint where it can be served well to reduce the reflection for the ceiling light. White emulsion paint eg. Nippon Matex or choose the anti-mould paint like ICI- Mouldguard paint to minimise of growing of fungus especially on the poor ventilation rooms and high moisture with air-conditioning.
White colour is perfectly fine and easy to blend with any kind of wall colour or themes.
