Bubbles


This is a weird one. SW Resilience repaint. I painted this in May. It was fine all summer. Then in the fall, bubbles explode out of it. Only on the bottom half of the door. I assume it has to do with the sun and the storm door trapping heat...

Re: Bubbles


Yes.

You need to replace the glass in the Spring and put in the screen. There isn't a paint in the world that will hold up to those peak temps.

Every door manufacturer has exclusions for that.

Re: Bubbles


Definitely has the look of HEAT BLISTERS. I have a customer that keeps their front door open all summer long just leaving the storm door as the only point of entry into the house. It gets so hot that it blisters the paint and WARPS the door if they leave the main door closed and trapping all that heat between the doors.

Yep, sun and a relatively dark color.

Re: Bubbles


Has to be a better answer or more to it because the blisters don't cover the entire door.

It is probably the angle of the sun though the glass.

There was a segment on some home show where the reflection of the sun from a nearby house actually browned some vinyl siding. It was seasonal.

Re: Bubbles


I think this is less a refraction or direct exposure issue as much as it is a trapped heat issue.

Vent the next storm door properly and you should be fine.

Storm doors aren't sealed that good or at least mine aren't. Still the blisters aren't all over the door meaning there is/was something else making certain areas worse.

Re: Bubbles


With direct exposure, even a poorly sealed storm door will trap tremendous heat in a matter of minutes. We have seen doors melt the foam right out of the door in the right conditions. It certainly will have enough heat to cook the paint right off.

Fix what? I ain't the OP.

You experts haven't fully answered yet. Bubbles, blisters or whatever are what, filled with what, from where?

Heat, yeah but what's it heating? You don't fill a balloon with a vacuum!

Where's that Rick Knows Paint guy??

Re: Bubbles


Not sure what that matters? They can be filled with any number of things but they are most likely some sort of volatilization byproduct.
