Pool Patio Ceiling Repair – Tape Joints Coming Down – Merritt Island

This Project Blog is about a exterior pool patio ceiling repair on a home in the Indian Bay sub division Merritt Island, FL.
This type of problem is very common on exterior ceilings. Over time the paper drywall tape begins to fail. The heat and humidity from the Florida climate and the added moisture in the air around a pool cause the tape to crack and start falling down.
Over the years I have perfected the technique and best materials to use on these types of exterior ceilings.
1) Cover and protect the pool/patio deck.
2) We removed all of the paper tape from all of the drywall seams.
3) I like to re secure the drywall at all of the seams, just in case the drywall wasn’t secured properly during the drywall installation phase when the home was built.
4) Install fiberglass mesh drywall tape to all of the exposed seams (much more exterior friendly than the drywall paper tape).
5) Apply two coats of a setting type joint compound (hot mud).
6) Apply final coat with all purpose joint compound or light weight compound
7) Install a knockdown texture at the repaired areas, feathering into the existing knockdown texture to match.

Here’s a few Before and After photos of this pool patio ceiling repair with a knockdown texture:
