Peeling - Mansonry/Metal

Back to exterior problems...
Paint adhesion is lost and the loose paint starts coming off in single to multiple coats.

Peeling probable causes - usually improper surface preparation and not identifying the conditions that need pre-painting attention. Uncontrolled moisture conditions, painting over rust, loose paint, chalking paint or dusty surfaces.

Masonry peeling solutions - remove all the loose paint with a wire brush. Power washing or sand blasting is recommended for large areas. Fill all cracks with a masonry patching compound. Use an alkali-resistant primer.

Metal peeling solutions - remove all loose paint and rust. Apply a rust conversion or rust inhibitive primer. Lightly sand factory primed metal and remove dust.

Primers and Exterior finishes - spot prime all bare areas for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Ask your Muralo dealer for the best Muralo exterior paint for your project, in the color and sheen of your choice.
