A damaged ceiling is often the first sign something might be wrong in your house. Soft sheetrock or visible water spots warn you about a potential plumbing problem. Cracks around the door frames and windows are a sign of potential foundation damage. Thin, straight cracks or separation in the corners of the room are also a sign of age. But once you diagnose the problem, don't let cracks and stains linger. Find a local ceiling repair company that can repair the damage.

Local ceiling contractors can be onsite quickly and remove damaged drywall before the problem spreads.
