Both of my bathrooms were painted prior to moving in. Months after moving in they have cracked and peeled. What can I do to?

Hello Tynetta,

I am lead to believe, that this is due to to much moisture. I would need more information on it. Although if my suspicions are correct. I think that your exhaust fans may not be adequate enough. Also if there is moisture coming in from the windows, this would cause the paint to peel and crack.

I would suggest removing the loose paint followed by sanding real well. Then Apply a coat of Primer I use Kilz Original Oil Based primer. then repaint with two coats of a good quality latex semi-gloss.
