Some of the most common exterior paint failures are: Chalking  The formation of white powder on the surface of the paint  Occurs when there is a chemical breakdown in the paint caused by poor priming and overly thinned out paint

Blistering  Occurs when there is moisture trapped in the wall surface or when the exterior of the house is painted in excessive heat


Peeling  Occurs when the painting surface is not properly cleaned of dirt, dust and grease or when you apply new paint over old paint Cracking  Occurs when there is poor surface preparation such as applying paint without removing the previous layer of paint  Occurs if the paint is spread too thinly on a rough surface or painting without priming the wall


Mildew ďƒ˜ Occurs when using an inferior quality paint Mottling ďƒ˜ Occurs when the surface is painted in excessively cold or humid temperatures
