Hi All,

the ceiling of my midcentury ranch has two problems:

1. hairline cracks; and

2. what appears to be a delamination of the plaster/drywall hybrid material (my house dates to the early 50s when both plaster and drywall were layered together in wall and ceiling construction).

Since the ceiling has a sandy perlite texture, I'm wary of digging out the cracks to re-tape since I will never be able to achieve the same texture. For the delamination, I'm wondering if installing plaster washers along the delaminated areas would pull the ceiling back flush to the surrounding plaster/drywall.

Any and all advice very welcome!

Thanks in advance...

pnwdiy, welcome to Paint Talk. What is your paint related field or trade? Also, is "pnwdiy" an acronym for something?
