Paint Peeling after two days

My contractor painted flat paint over semi gloss without priming the walls now after the first day we noticed you cannot touch the walls without the paint peeling off. Now what?

It's your contractors job to do it right.

General cont ( aka carpenter?) Should not act like a painter.

Call him up, explain your displeasure and get him over there to make it right. Be nice, be gentle it may have been an honest oversight. Make sure you have your signed contract in hand and point out what the expectations did have a signed contract, right?
