Bathroom Ceiling
« on: December 28, 2018, 11:03:40 PM »
Hi,
We're having our bathroom remodeled. The new walls will be plastered. I'm considering using oil paint on the ceiling to prevent any possible
peeling especially in the shower area. Does this make sense, or is there latex paint out there that would do the job ?

I would be more concerned about proper ventilation in the bathroom.  Also make dam sure the plaster is dry before coating.  Oil does not breath.  If it were me I'd use a good primer and a quality paint like PPG Manor Hall or one of the better Benjamin Moore paints.  Not sure what's available in your area.

Also, if you go to a real paint store, not big box they usually offer excellent advise.

Thanks for the reply.  How long should I wait before painting regarding the plaster drying. 

My contractor said 24 hours, should it be longer ?
