Blistering and peeling of exterior house paints down to the bare wood is usually caused by moisture behind the paint film. Moisture pressure forces the paint away from the surface. Sources of excess moisture in the wood must be eliminated prior to repainting. Old, unsound multiple coat paint systems may be subject to peeling when repainted due to the added weight and stress created by paint layers. In such cases, all old paint layers must be removed back to bare wood before repainting.

The contents of this can should be well stirred or boxed by pouring from one can to another to assure color uniformity. More than one can of the same color should be mixed together as you progress with your work. Check color before painting, not responsible for application of wrong shade. Custom colors are not returnable.
