HELP!!! Ceiling Paint

Posted by mollycats (My Page) on

My ceilings are typical mobile home ceilings, the long panels with strips and rosettes.

Could somebody tell me why they soak up paint so fast? Every time I paint them after a couple months it looks all splotchy. Seems like it absorbs the paint in places. Immediately after painting they look fine and I am sure they are well covered, but after a few weeks they look awful!!!

RE: HELP!!! Ceiling Paint

Is your roofing metal? Does the "splotchy" occur during the colder months? Condensation can occur on the underside of metal roofing and then drip off, wetting the ceiling panels. And there is no easy cure, if that is the case.
