Paint Problems


Peeling: Masonry / Metal


Peeling: Paint adhesion is lost and the loose paint starts coming off in single to multiple coats.

Peeling probable causes: Usually improper surface prep and not identifying the conditions that need pre-painting attention. Uncontrolled moisture conditions, painting over rust, loose paint, chalking paint or dusty surfaces.

Masonry peeling solutions: Remove all the loose paint with a wire brush. Power washing or sand blasting is recommended for large surfaces. Fill all cracks with a masonry patching compound. Use an alkali-resistant primer.

Metal peeling solutions: Remove all loose paint and rust. Apply a rust conversion or rust inhibitive primer. Lightly sand factory primed metal and remove dust.

Primers & exterior finishes: Spot prime all bare areas for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality exterior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
