Ok, here's my problem. I help run a pharmacy from a building with a history dating back to the mid 1800's. The ceiling of the main floor is either worked copper or tin (quite beautiful). We think it's copper. The problem is that sometime in the past the metal was painted over and now the paint is cracking and falling. The square footage is in the thousands I assume as it's a rather large building and I have no clue as to what to do, or even who to contact about this. The fact that the building is so old and the nature of the ceiling is giving me reservations about calling a regular painting company.
Any advice would be appreciated.

I would suggest you call a paint store (not a home center) in your area and get a reccomendation on what to use on your ceiling and they should be able to give you names of painters that can handle your job.
Your prject can be done using a paint remover like PEEL AWAY I or 7. However, for the ize of your job I would certainly recommend a contractor do it for you. Stripping a ceiling is the most difficult because of the gravity situation but PEEL AWAY has done used to do this job on enumerable occasions. Visit the web site at www.peelaway.com for more info
