Pint peeling


Peeling paint in a bathroom is usually preceeded by too much moisture. Is the current bath fan vent adaquate for the space. If not, scrape the paint clean, sand the edges smooth and give the wall behind the paint time to dry out. Then a good primer sealer then top coat.

Pint peeling


I have a fairly new vent that works real well. The problem I had a house full of company with all taking showers one right after another. This bathroom is small and the vent was not turn on, so over the tub/shower area the paint bubble and crack, where you now can peel lose paint just by pulling it off. Away from the tub/shower area the paint is very tight and seems like is going to be a problem to remove. Was wondering what product would help in getting the stubborn area off. ALSO if there is a stronger paint for bathroom ceilings. Thanks!

No need to remove the paint that is well bonded. Painting over the good paint to match it with the repair should be all you need to do. The area that is bubbling needs to be left alone- no showers for a few days so that the dry wall has a chance to dry out good. Otherwize you will trap that moisture in with the primer-sealer and it will peel again.

Benjamin Moore makes a good ceiling paint. I would use it.
