Wall paints give your wall a beautiful and clean finish. And with good colour and type of paint, you can give a room more personality. That explains why commercial painting is done in almost every building, with the walls, ceilings, sheds and other building elements covered in high-quality paint. Wall paint also plays a big role in improving the interior and exterior design. However, commercial painting isn’t always perfect. Some issues arise when you do not get help from a painting professional; lucky for you, experienced painting companies like us are here to help. For starters, here are some wall painting problems you should watch out for when you have commercial painting projects.
Cracks along the wall paint mean that the layer of paint you have applied may be too thin or the first coat of paint has not dried enough before applying the second coat. Repainting over the surface of these cracks will only give the same cracked and uneven wall paint. If this happened to your wall paint, you would need to remove the paint, sand the surface down, apply primer, and finally, repaint.
This issue is much more common in exterior painting compared to interior painting due to the nature of the problem being caused by outside elements such as dampness, mould or rust that all contribute to the deterioration of the paint. Another reason this occurs is the loss of adhesion between a coating and moisture or application on a dirty wall. You can restore this by sanding down and repainting the small areas. However, if a large area experiences this, the entire area would need to be treated and repainted.
Excess moisture getting underneath the paint is the cause of blistering. These can be observed as bubbles forming under the coat of your wall paint. These usually occur when the wall is painted during high humidity, on a damp surface or re-coating the paint too quickly. The lack of surface preparation increases the frequency of these blisters. To counter this issue, avoid painting during days with high humidity and be certain that the surface you are painting on is dry. Proper ventilation is a remedy to this situation for areas that are affected. Selecting proper undercoats are also important to lessen the chances of this reoccurring.
4. Wrinkling or Shriveling
Wall paints form wrinkles if the base coat of the paint is not entirely dried before the application of the final coat or due to heavy application of paint on a surface. Uncured paint exposed to the elements such as rain, dew and high humidity can also contribute to wrinkling. As stated earlier, not giving the wall paint sufficient time to dry is a big issue, so patience must be practised. And you should distribute the paint evenly across the surface; too much paint will never lead to a good outcome.
These are four of many wall painting problems that can occur in both interior and exterior painting. Painting requires patience; the time it takes to dry is very consuming. Many of these problems arise due to failure to let the paint fully dry or natural factors like humidity. Remember that these problems only occur if you misapply the wall paint. Furthermore, plenty of people lack diligence or knowledge in the world of wall painting, so be sure to contact a professional painting company or hire a paint expert to ensure that your walls will be painted with the best quality.
