Vectra Ceiling Repair

We experienced delamination of our ceiling from humidity over the years and quite possibly lack of care. Our solution was to remove as much air as possible and re-staple the fabric at the joints. We also added additional support to the ceiling fabric by adding light-weight plastic lattice framed by oak to match our existing interior. The lattice was screwed to the ceiling and then the frame added. We also added a couple of decorative strips of oak and black walnut to dress up our repair and make it eye pleasing. Total cost of our repair was less than $150. We hope this will help anyone with similar problems.
