Alligatoring Paint

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

Hi, My husband recently painted the surface of our stone cast house and the paint has crackling (alligatoring) on the final finish. This is only noticeable if you look closely. Will this have to be rubbed back or will it be OK? The house has been previously painted and has two good coats which have been on for a few years. Just worried that this may leave the wall susceptible to moisture getting in.

It should be OK…

Keep an eye on the paint. If peeling starts in the future you will have to repaint. Sounds like there might some kind on surface contamination that is affecting the new paint. Was the stone washed and rinsed before painting?
