paint bleeding


I have a new build Ryan home it is about 4 years old. They supposedly primmed and painted all walls. I have painted all rooms with 2 coats of behr paint. On all outside walls and ceilings the screw holes and joints are bleeding through making it look like a shadow or a dirty spots. What causes this and will repainting with another primer fix the problem for good?

They used latex paint which will not prevent bleed. You should re-prime with oil base and then re-coat with latex or oil. Good luck

You might want to check to see if they insulated the walls properly or at all. Just a hunch. The painters for Ryan Homes will typicly use the cheapest builders grade they can get thier hands on which will tend to suck up dirt in common places like that. I second the oil primer suggestion.

I definitely agree that you should prime with a stain blocking, solvent based, alkyd primer if allowed to use them in your area. Otherwise try latex equivalents. Benjamin Moore Fresh Start would be my choice but others on this site have other good faves.

The easy fix would be to prime with a stain killing oil/shellac base primer. But my concern is why is this happening at all. Generally when screws rust its because of condensation forms on the screw from a heat to cold transfer. If this is happening within the wall, insulation or not the problem could be bigger then simple screw bleed. If there is that much moisture in the walls there could be mold growth as well. You may want to get this checked by a professional just to make sure the issue isn't larger then the bleed.

Thanks for the help i will use a oil base primer. I am still not sure why it is only on extieror walls. it looks really funny on the ceiling in my livingroom cause half of the celing has a second story and there is no bleeding there.

You will eventually start seeing where the studs are. It is basicly the screws and wall studs being colder that the air in the room therefore transfering the cold to the drywall on the inside. There are 2 theories and both make sence. Those colder areas will have a slight amount of condensation which will attract dirt and or the colder areas are slower to bounce off common dust on the air.
