Interior Painting Tips: Fixing Common Paint Problems

Posted by Tim Nazzaro on Nov 1, 2016 1:02:00 PM

Paint bubbles can form long after the paint has dried. Take steps to avoid this problem before it occurs.

Paint blisters or bubbles occur when the paint film lifts from the underlying surface. The loss of adhesion between the paint film and surface is usually caused by heat, moisture or a combination of both. This condition eventually leads to peeling. It can be corrected, but the underlying cause of the problem must be addressed or it will recur

The Audit :

A home energy checkup helps owners determine where their house is losing energy and money - and how such problems can be corrected to make the home more energy efficient. A professional technician - often called an energy auditor - can give your home a checkup. You can also do some of the steps yourself. Items shown here include checking for leaks, examining insulation, inspecting the furnace and ductwork, performing a blower door test and using an infrared camera.
