Paint Problems


Wrinkling Exterior


Wrinkling: Improper paint application (usually too thick) can cause paint to have a crinkled surface.

Wrinkling probable causes: Usually occurs when there is interference with normal drying, such as: applying too much paint, applying second coat too soon, uncured paint exposure to excessive moisture conditions, painting when it is too hot or cold and painting over un-sanded glossy surfaces.

Wrinkling solutions: Remove wrinkled areas and other loose paint. Aged wrinkled areas may require chemical paint removers. Wear safety gear as directed. Sand until smooth. Remove dust. Apply at recommended spread rates. Avoid extreme temperatures: below 50°F and above 100°F.

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.
