Top 5 Reasons for peeling paint on drywall
First, Peeling paint is not just ugly, messy, and necessary to fix, it can be a sign of something more going on behind your walls or ceiling. If you have to peel paint and how your painting contractor will fix it so it doesn’t happen again.
There are many reasons why the paint could be peeling in your bathroom and here are some of the most common causes to consider. Knowing the root of the problem is an important first
step to fixing the issue.
Reason #1 for peeling paint on drywall: Water Leak
Your peeling paint may be trying to tell you something — that there may be a leak in your roof or water pipes that needs to be fixed. Determine whether this is the case by inspecting all possible areas of your home that could be causing moisture in the bathroom. Look on the roof for missing shingles and indoors, look at baseboards and flooring for water stains.
Reason #2 Improper surface preparation
If the walls that have peeling paint were dirty, damp, had old paint or other residues on them, and the surface wasn’t properly dried and primed before painting, the result will be peeling paint.
Reason #3 Wrong paint type
Bathrooms are a tough customer for paint. Whenever your bathroom sees a lot of shower traffic the paint will peel. In addition, using oil paint over the top of latex paint, or oil an latex paint were mixed together in error, it can also peel.
Reason #4 The paint didn’t dry between coats
Painting requires patience and can be tedious. If the first coat of paint didn’t completely dry before the second coat of paint applied, then the peeling paint might have been caused by the trapped moisture underneath.
Reason #5 High Humidity
Who doesn’t like a long, hot shower most days? A bathroom will get steamy and if there isn’t proper ventilation from windows or a fan, the walls and ceiling are going to feel the effects of this excessive moisture and the paint will peel. Ensure your bathroom has good ventilation and a fan that’s powerful enough for the space to protect ward off moisture. If the exhaust fan is the right size for the room, clean it to improve its effectiveness.
