Paint job took two years and everything peeled and cracked.

Kathleen Essman asked 5 years ago

Several years ago my husband painted our living room, dining room and hallway. With limited time to devote, he sanded, spackled and primed. However, he waited many months to apply the actual paint. In short order, we have peeling, chipping, crackling paint everywhere. I have not an idea as to how to proceed with a new paint job.

I recently started to scrape a small section in the hallway; I noticed that what came off easily revealed bare drywall. I think, with some of the surface not coming up as easily as others. Help! This is a disaster. I don’t know how to proceed.
