Mechelle asked 7 years ago

My painter applied latex paint on top of oil based paint on the trim, which promptly began to peel as the new flooring was installed. I asked him to remove the latex and repaint with oil based paint. He did not remove the latex, but painted over it with oil based paint and now if I bump into a door, the paint chips through the oil and latex layers down to the original oil based layer. How do I prep the trim to repaint with an oil based paint. The doors are Masonite with faux wood grain.
