My house is approx 100 yrs.old. I live in Chicago, Il.
A couple of weeks ago my second floor bathroon sink over-
flowed (the water was running for about 2hrs!)and ruined
my living room ceiling. It has these hairline cracks and
some areas have started to peel. I've gotten 3 different
opinions as far as how to fix it. The ceiling is plaster
and has this beautiful molding trim that looks a little
droopy in certain sections. My question to you is this,
should I have the old plaster ceiling removed and replaced
with plaster board, or should we just fill in the cracks
and place the plaster board over the existing ceiling?
