Peeling Paint


I've got paint peeling on the door frame in one of my rooms. It's peeling on about 40% of the frame. No other damage is noticeable. Any idea on why this happens? Finally, what is the best way to remedy the situation?

Thanks

Steve

Peeling Paint


Possibly woodwork that had polyurethane on it and was painted over with paint. They likely skipped the step of applying a bonding primer. Scrape, prime with a bonding primer, and repaint.

New paint? New board? What paint? What was there already?

Peeling Paint


20 year old house...I've peeled back some of the peeling paint and have determined its the first coat.interesting because it's only in one room...no water damage that I know of...I guess I'm more interested in knowing how to fix it than the history

They probably ran short on new trim and reused something that had varnish or something on it.

No primer or someone painted over oil based paint is what it looks like.
If there was no primer then all the paint will come off with nothing left on the wood.

In cases like this I like to use a RAZOR blade scraper. You can remove nearly all the peeling paint with it........it takes more time, but you can get nice clean edges without breaking out the sander.......sometimes.

It looks like latex paint over an old alkyd, which has become very brittle.

That could also be a problem with the wood. Is the wood sound underneath?

Not sure on the type of wood. I thought it could have been moisture, but its on the other side of the room as well...the wood looks like its in great condition. Not sure on the type of wood.
