Bubbling, peeling chunks!

Cindy asked 9 years ago

I just put a second coat of latex paint on and it started to bubble only on one wall, then peeled off in big chunks! The house is 5 years old and it looks like just a flat paint was thrown on the walls. How do I quickly fix this problem? Help!

Scrape off the bubbles and any loose paint. Now prime the damaged areas with a shellack primer. Allow to dry for 2 hours then apply drywall mud to even out the damaged areas with the surrounding surfaces, use a setting mud like 20 or 45 minute. Sand the drywall mud when dry, texture if needed then prime and paint. All of the repairs should only take about 3-4 hours total.
