Is this acceptable? Pics

I lightly scuffed the moulding before spraying to knock off anything in the primer. As I am sure you are aware it is much harder to see defects in primer then a semi-gloss. You can feel the joints but they are not real obvious until you get some gloss on them.

In all of my years I never needed to sand a finger joint. I personally find it unacceptable that I would need to sand even a finger joint every foot on moulding with that much detail. It would take a tremendous amount of time and would never look perfect by hand sanding. Again this was not the cheap stuff.

Spoke to lumber yard today and then received a call from a rep from the actual moulding producer. He looked at the pics and apologized. He said sometimes they prime to soon without the glue in the finger joints fully curing and it causes this.

He offered to replace the moulding and even offered to try to reimburse me for my time and paint which I declined. I am just happy they are working to resolve the problem. They could have easily tried to put the blame on me. Thanks for the feedback

It's good to hear that there are still some stand-up companies out there.
