2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, November 11, 2008 Problems on the surface This week we continue to look at solving painting problems. Blistering exterior paint Why is paint blistering and peeling on recently painted eaves? Answer The most common reasons for blistering or peeling paint are either an improperly-prepared surface or the presence of moisture. This can often occur around the roofline as a result of water seepage and pooling around the roof and eaves. Blocked gutters or stormwater drains can also cause water to back up and overflow, resulting in moisture in the roof and around the eaves. It may also occur because of improper paint application, selecting the wrong paint for the job, or using poor-quality paint. Droplets forming on acrylic paint Why would droplets appear on a recently-painted weatherboard home? It was painted with acrylic paint. Answer During the drying process, acrylic paints sometimes develop small, light-coloured droplets on the surface. This can happen if the weatherboards are exposed to subsurface moisture. These droplets are known as surfactant and are drawn to the surface by moisture. Don't be concerned, though, as the droplets should not damage the durability of the paint. There can be an effect on the surface appearance. You'll need to wash the surface with sugar soap and then rinse with plenty of water. You may need to continue to wipe the droplets clean over a couple of weeks until they are completely cleared away.
