New Paint Job...Blistering, Cracking, Peeling...


I appreciate everyone's feedback regarding the spackling; that does appear to be the majority of my problem. I believe the isolated blisters at seemingly random spots across the front of the house are all caused by a failure of the spackling (as you can see in the 1st picture below), which I will address with the painter. However, I still have one or two isolated areas with definite moisture issues; this is where the bare wood is being exposed by the cracking/blistering (see picture 2 below). Any specific thoughts on what is causing this particular condition?

Thanks again for the feedback.

From the top photo, it looks like some white powdery substance which almost looks like drywall powder after it is sanded. I am wanting to know if there was something else done that you have not mentioned because we did not know about the spackling until later?

Moisture is a problem and I am still thinking it may have been damp before the coatings were put down.

Did he back brush all the claps during the priming stage?

Did he properly clean the house(redundant, but still an option if he does not know how to properly clean)

I always like to use breathable paints to allow moisture to not get in, but allows it to come out.

The problem could originate from warm air (inside) moving to the outside and condensing underneath the boards. These bubbles then appear at random and keep on appearing .
Did have this problem and painted for six years to no avail. Was told that the boards were cedar . This apparently contributed to the problem as that material not suitable for painting.
In colder climates the lack of vapour barrier and insufficient insulation adds its two cents to the problem as well.

Cedar isn't suitable for painting?
