Tacky paint in bathroom.

Martha Cressy asked 10 years ago

Primed the bathroom wall. Used 2 coats of Benjamin Moore bathroom paint (pearl finish). After 1 month it still feels tacky to touch. What is the problem? How long will it take to dry.

Generally when a coating takes an inordinate amount of time to dry, there is an underlying problem of surface contamination prior to painting.

This situation is quite common in kitchens and baths. Given that Benjamin Moore is only available through local paint dealers, I suggest you return to the dealer for their recommendation as they will have more information with regard to primer and finish you used.
