What do you think when you see this photo - still a job like you describe, or would the whole ceiling need to be replaced. The actual hole is about the size I described, but the entire affected area shown below is about 5' in length - from the area just left of the hole, all the way to the right (where you hopefully can see that it's not yet cracked open, but seems to be damaged; there's a line). On the other side of the room, 15' across from this, is another damaged area; no hole, but you can see there's about 1.5 s.f. of water damage.
