65% of house owners complain of peeling wall paints in the first 6 months. Peeling significantly lowers the attractiveness of a building and can turn a classy building into a dump trashy outpost. Today we are going to evaluate the twelve known causes of peeling and how to solve them so you can enjoy your new building for a longer time.

Why is my Paint Peeling:

expert analysis has shown that the number one reason why paints peel is as a result of lack of adhesion between the Paint and the surface It is on. you can read up my expert analysis on Preparing wall surfaces before painting. A “to be painted surface” needs to go through preparative processes to make it fit to be painted. These preparative processes when done well help eliminate surface-related issues and subsequently peel when the painting is done.

Peeling occurs as a result of these twelve factors below:

Extreme Temperatures:

According to expert research, high temperatures can result in paint peeling. In Areas with intense sunlight and intense low temperatures. The optimum temperature needed for the adhesive bond of the paint to act on the paint and the surface painted does not occur, therefore there is a high probability of peeling.

Poor surface Preparation:

As stated earlier this is a major cause of peel in new paintings. when the surface is ill-prepared there will be coagulation or incompatibility between the surface and the coating which invariably results in peeling, flaking, and chalking.

High Humidity and exposure to lots of Moisture or water:

When Surfaces are exposed to high Humidity or Moisture, there is a tendency for the paints to begin peeling, this is because moisture and humidity inactivate the binding power of these paints to the surface manifesting as peeling. The water can originate from a leaking roof, gutter, flashing, or soffit. It can also be the result of a permeable wall allowing water to penetrate to the inner surface, or even from splashes of water in the washroom.

Double or More Paint Layers:

Sometimes during repainting, house painters make the mistake of painting a new coat on an already existing coat. This may look innocent but in the long run, it tends towards peeling of wall paints and in a magnificently astonishing manner. The best way to avoid this is to scrape off the first coat of the wall paint before applying a new one. The scrapping can be done with a metal scraper.

The Surface Is Exposed to Corrosive Substances

There are many substances that can corrode a painted surface. If a corrosive substance comes into contact with a painted surface, it causes the coat to blister, crack, and finally peel off. Corrosive substances usually contain strong acid or base. This is why you should not clean the walls of your home with bleach or another highly acidic product—make sure to dilute it so that it doesn’t ruin the paint.
