Behr paint peeling off of fresh drywall in bathroom


I just want something that lasts and goes on good. I've spent a lot on this bathroom, it seems silly to get a middle of the road paint.

. cant say for sure what i'm looking at.blue board drywall is for veneer plaster application and not painting directly over. if its not, oh well just a thought.
The blue board is actually gypsum board for bathrooms, it's mold resistant. Sorry, I was calling it dry wall the whole time when I should have been calling it gypsum board.

Behr paint peeling off of fresh drywall in bathroom


It was mentioned they probably didn't wipe the ceiling and walls down with damp sponge to remove joint compound dust ,so keep that in mind when they spackle again when it dries and after they sand again they should wipe it down with damp sponge Benjamin Moore makes a primer called fresh start #02300 zinzer makes a primer called smart primer both very good smart primer dries in couple hours fresh start a little longer it doesn't hurt to have a fan blowing across primed surfaces after that's dry I would use Ben-Moore pearl finish on walls and ceiling or maybe a matte finish on ceiling . That decision shouldn't have been left up to you they should have told you what they were going to use as far as the product and the finish you pick the color but you can't go wrong with Benjamin Moore and the people in the paint store are knowledgeable enough to help you with questions you might have they are in the paint stores that I use in new York

Makes sense. That's the great thing about having choices!
