Decorating not my thing, leave it her who must be obeyed!
Problem is that it seems the new paint work is flaking away from wall. This area is about 7 foot from finished floor level and about 2 foot square area. There is no signs of damp cold or spots. The room above has no problems. I did remove an extractor fan and brick up both skins render and plaster. But this hole was about a meter away and lower down the wall. Nearest pipe work that is above this area is over 4 meters to the side, so non behind or directly above.
Have removed paint and repainted it and happened again within days.
Anyone got and idea?
It's not new plaster, it was covered by them hidious, 8ftx4ft ply wood panels, the wall had the old green paint that must have been popular when the vikings where marroding and left over from the longboats! But the wall seemed in good condition.
It was emulson that was used.
I moved into a 1960's ex council property last year. Painted the entire house only for the paint to start flaking off almost immediately. There doesn't appear to be any damp.
Everywhere I look there seems to be patches of paint coming off, internal walls included - it's driving me mad.
I'm going to have to start from scratch and either remove the paint from all walls myself (which is going to take forever) or have the walls skimmed (which is going to cost the earth as really all rooms need doing).
