Recognizing and Solving Interior Paint Problems

Posted on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 @ 01:05 PM

Odds are if you have owned a home, you have experienced one or two interior paint problems.  When I say paint problems, I’m not talking about a dilemma choosing between paint A and paint B (although I’m not doubting that is indeed a dilemma, just not the one we are focusing on today) or accidently rolling paint onto your ceiling when painting your walls (whoops).  I’m talking about waking up one day and noticing the paint on your wall is cracking, bubbling or peeling.  Now this may be due to many reasons.  Today I’d like to explore these reasons and learn a few easy methods to correct these problems and make your home look as good as new! I’d also like to present a few options to prevent such annoyances! When you use the right paint on the correctly prepared surface, there should be little reason for these problems to arise in the future.
