I have lived in my vintage farmhouse for 17 years and have had my bedroom painted several times during that period. Each time the paint on one wall begins to peel after a year or two. I'm about to have it repainted and I would really like to solve this problem, if possible.
The room is painted white, the exterior is brick, and that wall faces north so gets no sun. Could this be caused by latex over oil? Improper curing each time? Excess moisture in the brick? And, most important of all, is there a solution? The painter that I called in for an estimate said that it would probably happen again. Do I have to be satisfied with that assessment??
Would appreciate any help.
