Had the walls painted with latex over latex and the paint can be washed off or peels off like a skin. Painter wants to prime and repaint. Should it be completely removed? The walls were clean but he didn’t use a primer.

This was due, not because of no primer, but because of either bad quality paint and or poor application…

Prime all with a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer, then finish coat with Sherwin Williams Classic-99 Latex…
