And this is why primer is important!

Detroit, MI house.

Admittedly, paint was one of the smaller problems for this vacant house.:slight_smile:





Seems to be a lot bigger issues than primer. High humidity, moisture? Don’t think primer would have helped with what I see. Hope it wasn’t lead paint :shock:

I’ve seen that so many times out in the city. Usually it’s the result of excessive condensation on the walls from flooding in the home.

Latex over oil base paint is my guess.

Looks like mold froming on the ceiling in the first picture.

Never know what you’ll find behind a plywood front “door”…


Was she built prior to '78? Could be fun for someone to clean that up.
