Repair and paint in Upper Arlington

How does a person repair damaged drywall on the ceiling above an indoor swimming pool?  Stiles of Ohio solved this problem by building a temporary platform over the swimming pool.

steps taken to build a platform or “dance floor”:

  • We first protected the swimming pool this thick protective plastic
  • Laid 2×6 studs perpendicular to the narrow width of the swimming pool 16 inches apart
  • Attached subfloor perpendicular to the framing with screws
  • We also staggered the seams to help with the stability

After the platform was built, we could move scaffold and ladders to reach necessary areas.
