    Bit of a long story, I'll try to make it as short as possible. I moved into my house 3 years ago. The previous owner had re-painted the bathroom ceiling with who-knows-what. No idea what condition the ceiling was in before that. A year or so later, the paint started to peel/chip in spots...

    I am using a contractor to renovate my bathroom (my house was built in 1937). He installed cement board in the tub/shower area for the walls and didn't use a vapor barrier.

    I have been having bathroom celing moisture problems in two bathrooms for the past couple months. The house was built in 2007 and we've lived there for almost a year before it started happening. We originally noticed it when after taking a shower each spot where a nail was just beneath the...
