Trim Problem ?


Contracted painters to paint existing wood trim.

Existing trim had white gloss paint on it. Applied gloss latex.

New paint has been applied and drying for 2-3 days now. Paint is still "sticky". It appears to peal off in places as well.

Question-- Was this applied improperly ? If so, how should the contractors have approached this ?

If improper, what is the fix ?

Trim Problem ?

It sounds like there was gloss oil originaly and that latex was applied for the top coat? Is this possible? There are a couple other possibilities.
The paint should of dried days ago.
Need more info to help.

Interior, exterior?
Exact type (brand & line) of paint?
Humidity, temp, other climate/weather conditions?
