We had contractors paint a LARGE amount of trim in our house. A week later we noticed the peeling when touched (we have 3 kids.) The contractor just came back and realized that he painted latex over oil and it is not adhering. My husband painted latex over oil 2 years ago with no problem (the rest of the trim in the house.) The contractor said he is going to try to paint a different paint to see if the trim "hardens up." Does anyone know of any product that does that? Or does anyone have a suggestion for what else to do besides scrape it all off and start over or move? Thanks for your input!
There is nothing I know of that will make a layer underneath adhere. Anything that you put over it may hold it in place for a while but it will be a floating finish. You really need to scrape off all the latex and prime it with oil based primer. Then you can paint it with latex.
