Lori asked 4 weeks ago

We have a new home construction (1 yr old) and whenever I lightly hit a wall with my fingernail, etc. the paint comes off right down to the drywall.  I am concerned, as the paint seems very thin and the drywall seems soft after a full year.  What could cause this problem?  We have standard drywall, a thin, stucco type texture finish and Sherwin Williams paint that was airsprayed throughout the entire home.  If our texture crew thinned out the texture with too much water while applying, and then the paint went on too soon, could that be the problem?  There was a LARGE amount of texture product left over and the buckets of texture the crew was applying seemed thin?  Don’t know, but would like to have a better understanding before I talk to the builder.  Thanks so very much!
