Crack filling for decorating
Could someone please tell me why after opening ceiling cracks to fill them and then painting it after its dry, does the filler reappear but ridged like the cracks are pushing the filler out ?
if both edges of boads have movement ,then they will need more fixings along joints . if problem is up stairs check loft is vented so heat and condensation do not build up causing plaster board to bend

Hello. The crack need to clean it and fill it. After it's dry, sanding. Sticking the plasterboard mesh on top where was a crack. filling , drying, sanding. Second time filling and sanding. Your ceilings is ready for painting. Usually to sort crack on the ceilings with filling, repainting need 2 days.
