HOW TO FIX CRACKING AND FLAKING PAINT (WOODWORK)


Description

Paint lifting and coming away from the surface.

Possible causes

• Poor surface preparation: not sanding and undercoating before glossing = lack of key
• Not washing the surface, leaving it contaminated with dust and grease beneath the paint
• Ageing of paint system: old coatings underneath losing adhesion, going powdery
• Action of weather, such as heat and frost
• Shrinkage of wooden surface
• Dampness.

Remedy

Where possible, small affected areas can be scraped off, filled, sanded and ‘spot'-primed. However it is usually best to remove the paint, by either burning off or by using a solvent paint remover (see page 41). Always make sure that paint remover is rinsed off thoroughly and apply a good-guality primer before applying further coatings.
