Paint peeling issue
 
Good day all!

The bathroom vent in my house does not suck out moist air like most do. I am not sure why, but it just doesn't. When I get done with the paint, I will be putting in a stronger bathroom vent, but that is another topic.

The paint on the bathroom ceiling has been peeling. Someone had put exterior house paint on it to stop the mildew growth. I am honestly not sure if the paint had been peeling before that happened, but it has been peeling since I have been living there. I finally got sick of looking at it, scraped, cleaned off mildew (bleach/detergent), sanded (80 grit), mudded (lightly), and sanded (120? grit) some more. The mud was actually not sticking in some areas and peeling off just like the paint was. I just now put some Kilz original on the ceiling to use as a barrier to keep whatever was causing the mud to fall off from doing so. My intention was to Kilz, finish mudding, sand some more, 2 more coats of Kilz, then add paint. Well, the Kilz is peeling off the ceiling. More specifially, the paint under the Kilz where the mud joins the painted areas is peeling. Do I need a longer drying oil primer or is there something else going on that is giving me these problems? It started peeling as soon as the Kilz was put on.

I greatly thank you.

This may shock you/others out there, but after all this time and physical effort (and who-knows what other crappy products have been used in there...),

...you could've EASILY taken-down that sheetrock (I'm assuming it is...?!), and installed/finished new.

>>> You'd then have a perfect surface to prime & paint. PLUS, you'll be able to inspect and install a good fan/ducting easier! In the long run, this is a much better way, and it doesn't cost much!!!!

Instead of tearing it down laminate 1/4" drywall over the top.

I agree but use atleast 1/2" or it will sag over time between the rafters or use glue.

Yeah, covering is OK too.

I was erring on the side of tear-out because you can then easily see any problems overhead...and mount the NEW ceiling-fan without the extra drywall depth.

Kinda "Mike Holmes"-style there!

I said "laminate" Don't tear the old down, just glue and screw the new over the top of it.


Sorry, I don't know whoMike Holmes is. Anything like "John Holmes"?
