Ok well in my parents house the main bathroom paint is peeling. They tried scraping it but that's as far as it goes. Well i was going to fix it for them but i need to know where to start and what to buy/get. Ive included pics also. It seems that the scraped paint doesn't have the same texture as whats below it so how would i redo that?
How old is the house?
Could be moisture if there is no exhaust fan or window.
Could be the fact the wrong paint was used as far as latex over oil.
As far as the texture goes, you can sand and lightly scrape off any peeling paint. Apply a coat of guards clear and then add a texture.
You can rent hoppers at the local hardware box store, but you have to really tape and plastic everything off tight before you tried to attempt this. In the long run just hire an experienced contractor to do this. You will save time and money in the long run as well as it lasting longer.
When hiring a contractor it is not just good enough to get 3 references. Get the last 3 do you can see they were working this week and not just 2 years ago.
Yeah thats a mess, definitely needs to be re taped. It looks pretty old, I would avoid sanding as much as possible because there could be a layer of lead based paint there. A chemical strip would be preffered, definitely see about hiring that job out.
Another option would be to just rip the drywall out and start over. It could end up being cheaper/easier in the end. Also, if its a moisture issue, that can be fixed with the drywall off and any mold/mildew removed ( chances are behind the wall is mold )
