trouble painting stipled ceiling


I have a back porch. WE used green-backed moisture proof sheetrock. This was 15 years ago. The ceiling is stippled and has been painted 3 previous times before. This year I'm repainting again but when I roll the ceiling the previous coat of paint is coming off. Not the sheetrock mud just the paint is turning loose. Each time I painted I have used the same exact paint, Glidden ceiling white paint. Is there a trick to removing the last coat of paint without having to scrape the stipled ceiling back down to a smooth finish. Is there a primer, bonder that I can put on the ceiling that will prevent me from having to sand down the ceiling. One that I can applie over the old paint.

Art, what layer is the peel going down too? Is the stipple done with compound and is it going to down to that? You say ceiling white paint, so I'm assuming it's flat, correct? I don't see why a layer of flat paint would peel off another layer of flat paint. I can however see it if it's not flat, or it's all the flat layers peeling as one from the substrate surface.

trouble painting stipled ceiling


I studied my problem long and hard. My solution was to use a high pressure air gun with no medium used,just air. I want'd to prevent having to saturate my ceiling without using any kind of moisture. To answer your question, all the paint did not peel only the last coat that was applied, peeled off. All the paint as I said in my original question was flat ceiling paint. Long story short, the air nossle made short work of the problem it blew off the paint lickety split as if it never adhered to the ceiling at all.
I then used a primer sealer on the ceiling before painting. The only thing that comes to mind is I got ahold of some bad or old paint. But it seems My problem is solved. I'm not a professional painter but I have been painting for over 30 years and this has never happened to me before. Once again thanks for replieing.
