Why Does My Home’s Paint Peel?

Getting your house painted is such an exciting project. House painting revitalizes your home and makes it truly yours (not to mention it increases your property value). But the last thing you want is for your paint to start peeling. It doesn’t matter if it’s exterior paint or interior paint, having peely paint can really dampen the overall look of your interior design. Thankfully, this is a problem that our painters can help you with. You don’t have to stress about it alone.

Peeling paint can be caused by a variety of issues, but below are the most common problems and how Spectrum Painting can prevent them.

Moisture is a tricky thing, especially with exterior paint. Our team of painters won’t paint right after a storm or rain shower. You want to give the walls a chance to dry. In addition, the moisture in the air can cause the paint to stay unsettled. We want our projects to look fantastic, so we always do house painting when it is nice and dry outside.

Type of surface
This might seem like a no-brainer, but painting on hard and slick surfaces will surely make the paint peel, since the paint has nothing to stick to, making the adhesion hard to achieve when painting. This is true for all types of surfaces, including metal, glass and others. If you have a slick surface, we scrape or sand the area to dull it, making it easier for the paint to adhere to the surface. In addition, priming before adding your desired paint will keep it looking fresh for years to come.

Wrong paint
Another likely reason your paint might peel is poor quality paint. Rest assured that Spectrum uses only the best types of paints. In addition, peeling can also happen if you forgot to use a primer, or you paint over existing paint with a different type like water, oil or latex-based. This is a common mistake and should be avoided when doing DIY interior design. If you hire our painters to complete any painting projects for exterior or interior design, we complete research about what’s best for your walls. We determine what was used previously and find out what will work best this time around. We work with our clients directly to find the best kind of paint that fits your budget and will sustain a long-lasting finish.

There are a lot of factors for why your paint might peel, but why worry about it? Just hire a professional to take care of it. With years of experience, the Spectrum Painting professional team knows what paint and techniques work best, and we make sure each and every project is above and beyond quality.

From the estimate to final walk through, every aspect was done in a friendly and professional manner. Could not be more pleased with the final product, a beautifully stained bow and kitchen window. Jose' and his helper did an excellent job and went above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied with the work. Second time using Spectrum and I highly recommend them.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!
