Peeling paint is one of the most common problems every homeowner encounters at one point in time. However, the blistering and curling paint, the messy tangle of cracks and the flakes littering the floor are unsightly, affecting the aesthetic appearance of your home. While you can save money and spend a few hours doing it by yourself, it is advisable to let the professional painters in Sydney fix the peeling paint. Certain jobs need professional intervention and house painting is one of them.

There are several reasons why paint peel from the wall, and you can prevent it if you know it. So, what causes peeling paint? Here are the most common causes of peeling shared by our residential painters Sydney:-


Moisture is one of the most common causes of many issues in a house, and peeling paint is one of them. In fact, moisture and water are big enemies of a building as they can lead to a lot of issues that lead to structural damages. Paint starts to peel from the wall when water gets under the paint. Hence, the most common areas of peeling paint to occur are in the wettest areas in your house, including bathroom, laundry, and kitchen.

Excess humidity and leaky roofs can also cause the paint to peel from the walls. Even if there is no water damage, moisture could do all the damage. Ensure to fix the water leaks as soon as you notice.

Lack of Surface Preparation

The preparation of the wall is the key to a successful painting job. Before painting the walls, it is essential to ensure the area is cleaned and allowed to dry completely. If a coat of paint is applied on the dirty wall, it will crack or peel over time. Besides, it is of utmost importance to use a good primer while preparing the wall to assure the paint’s adhesion. When it comes to the residential painting job, it is best to hire house painters in Sydney rather than a DIY painting job.

Wrong Choice of Paint

You should choose the same type of paint when you are painting over existing paint. Water, oil-based, and latex paints don’t blend well together and can cause cracking and peeling paint over time. Choosing the right paint is the key to the longevity of the paint job.

Building Age

A paint job doesn’t last forever, especially if the building is very old. The age of the building is also a common cause of peeling paint.
