Paint Problems- Causes and Fixes

When paint lifts and creates a blister or bubble like effect it’s usually caused by the loss of good adhesion/application of the paint to the painted surface, as well as inexperienced painters.


Most often and most commonly this condition will lead to the paint peeling from the wall or other surface it was applied to.  If not properly taken care of it re-occurs.

Paint Problems The Causes

Some of the reasons why Paint bubbles, peeling occur

  • It can be caused by heat, moisture or both. Applying Paint on a damp, dirty or hot surface (such as an exterior porch, fence or deck) after being exposed to nature’s elements
  • Application of alkyd paint product over the latex paint product
  • Insufficient, inexperienced and improper surface prep
  • Extreme moisture, such as in bathrooms, where there is no fan or window to be opened to let out some of the hot water moisture.

Paint Problems and Fixes

How to stop, prevent and avoid Paint bubbling or peeling

  • Prepare the surface where the paint is to be applied by ensuring it is clean and dry and free from moisture.  For example for an exterior staining or painting of a deck or fence, we as professional Ottawa Painter would ensure the wood was dry for at least 3-5 solid days of sun and heat.  The sun will have soaked up all the moisture on the wood and the heat helps everything dry up, including the stain or paint that is to be applied 🙂
  • A paint primer or sealer is also a perfect product to apply onto wood, over stains
  • If we are painting a wall on the interior of your house we will ensure that any drywall joint compound is properly sanded, wiped and primed with a latex paint or primer
