I have a client whose home is 12 years old. The paint has peeled in small patches in various rooms on ceilings and walls. I tested these areas with my moisture meter and thermal camera. Moisture doesn’t seem to be the issue. The client did most of the painting herself, but had a professional do the cathedral ceiling. That cathedral ceiling is also peeling. The only place the paint hasn’t peeled is the bathroom, where a different type of paint was used. She said all the paint applied in the home, including the bathroom, was Valspar. This paint job was completed about six years ago, when the family moved in. Also, the peeling paint is in a variety of colors. The peeling started within the last year.
I think it might be the original paint used by the builder or a primer. Any ideas?
