Why Does Bubbling and Peeling Occur?
When paint starts to bubble or peel, it's commonly the result of shifts in
temperature. As the seasons change and warm weather sets in, added heat and moisture causes paint to lift from drywall. At first, you'll see
minor bubbling. Over time, the adhesion between the two materials becomes so weak that the paint peels off entirely.
In more serious scenarios, bubbling might be a sign of leaking. Conduct some due diligence to ensure the source of a potential leak is
properly taken care of.
Here’s How to Fix It
Bubbling and peeling isn't pretty, but there's a simple fix! First, remove all
blistering paint from your wall. Then, grab some
to smooth over the affected area. Sand and re-paint if necessary, and you're done!
Looking Forward: Your Ideal Preventative Measure
While an instance of peeling paint has a quick fix, it's important to ensure you won't
have to deal with the same problem spot again. The best way to avoid repeat blemishes? Use a
weather-resistant, waterproof, and heat-resistant mending agent so changes in
temperature and moisture levels — or the presence of harsher weather when dealing with exterior paint — have no effect on the longevity of
your repair job. (Good news:
