Cracking and Bubbling Paint


There are many ways of renovating your house. You will note
that once you have renovated your home, it normally looks new and attractive.
This can actually make you have some prestige as a homeowner. One way of
renovating your home is by painting. You can choose an interior painting or exterior painting. However, painting is not an easy undertaking. There
are several things that you need in order to paint your house. You need the
paint itself, a brush and perhaps a professional to help you out. There are
several painting problems that you can encounter when painting your house. Your paint can
bubble and so on. Your paint can even crack on your walls. This can be detrimental.
This is a common phenomenon in many homes.

Paint Cracks on Your Surfaces

Paint cracks is a common problem in many households. Itbubbling paint
normally looks like a flattened spider web of cracks in the paint. Cracked
paint can have a number of causes. If you spot mud cracks, this is an indication
that too many layers of paint were applied on the surface of the wall. In addition,
if the wall is dirty, you are likely to experience paint cracks. This is the
reason why you need to clean your wall before painting it. If your paint was
cheap and has low adhesion, you are likely to see these paint cracks on your wall.
Such cracks are known as hairline cracks.


Other types of paint crack that you are likely to encounter
include alligator cracks. These are normally caused when a second or third
coat of paint is applied before the previous coat has dried. Some of these
cracks normally start off small. However, with time, they can worsen. This can
lead to flaking. Paint cracks can be caused by paint drying too fast. Aging paint
that has failed to expand and contract as a result of humidity changes can also lead to
paint cracks. Your wall can have paint cracks if you fail to prepare your wall well.
This includes applying primer prior to painting.

Paint Bubbles On Your Surfaces

Paint bubbles is another phenomenon that is experienced by
many homeowners. This normally happens as a result of the loss of adhesion between
the paint and the underlying surface of the wall. Lack of adhesion can be
caused by many factors. Some of them include moisture, heat or a combination
of the two. If you fail to make the necessary repairs, your paint can start to peel.
If you notice this problem, you should not only repair the area but also deal
with the underlying problem. If your wall normally gets direct sunlight, your
paint is likely to bubble. Presence of excessive moisture can lead to paint bubbling.
Improper preparation of the surface can make your paint to bubble. Painting on a
a dirty wall can make your paint to bubble.


It is important that you prepare your wall properly in order
to prevent the above-mentioned problems. In addition, you should ensure that
you use quality paint so that you can end up with good results. If this problem
persists, you can consider getting the services of a professional house painter in order to
get helped.
