Valspar Paint Problem


I have a customer who did their own painting in a hallway. Normally, I do most of his painting, but, he did this particular hallway in the summer when I was too busy to get to it. Anyway, he used Valspar paint (their middle of the road version of Satin at about $25 per gallon) and it looks great for the most part. It has been about 6 months since he painted it. It had a few marks on the wall and he tried to wash them off with a damp washcloth (damp with water only). It now has a hazy look to it almost as if he rubbed drywall dust into the paint finish. Anyone have a similar problem?

Valspar Paint Problem


Valspar is cheap, both in cost and makeup

That would most likely be the resin system breaking down and burnishing. You could try to paint over it again with the same paint, but it may not be able to match the wall around it. You may want to try to spot prime. If all else fails, you'll probably need to do the whole wall over.
