Is Paint Bubbling on a Ceiling Bad?

Yes, bubbling paint on a ceiling is bad. Bubbling paint is typically an indicator of water, either from a failing roof, leaking pipe, backed up toilet, leaking washing machine, or overflowing shower/bathtub. Bubbling paint shouldn’t be ignored. Remember, water damage will only get worse over time! When water is dripping or leaking it will continue running down to the lowest point of your home, which means that if left unaddressed, today’s water problem will become tomorrow’s wall and flooring problem as well. It’s not unusual to see home damage that starts on the top floor of a home, continues through the main floor, and extends down into the basement. Get help right away if you find signs of water damage anywhere in your home to avoid a costlier fix later on and the possibility of mold growth as well. When you have ceiling water damage, call a local professional to come and take a look to figure out how to fix it.
