Paint failures and remedies is one of the main headaches when it comes to home painting. Home painting services in Bangalore– ColourDrive makes sure that we reduce the intensity of paint failure.

Paint Failure can be caused by many reasons like Poor workmanship, lack of adhesion and incorrect type of paint. Due to this various like blistering and chalking of paints take place. In this blog we will be discussing about various versions of Paint Failure and it’s easy to do home remedies.

Blistering Of Paints

Blistering of paint is due to moisture which forces up the paint film into little bubbles and is a major paint failure. A rapid rise in temperature will cause the vapours to expand and produce blisters.

Paint Hack– Make sure the surface is clean and dry. Apply primer before painting and make sure to not paint the walls in hot temperature.

Bleeding Of Paints

Bleeding is the staining or seeping through of a soluble dye from the substrate through the top coat color.

Paint Hack– Before painting ensure all contamination, especially bitumen and tar deposits to be thoroughly removed. You can carry out a solvent test to check if a soluble dye exists.

Chalking Of Paint

Chalking is the powdering of the surface paint due to external exposure and lack of paint binder. It is caused by choice of the wrong hardener, poor aftercare of paint work, color coats applied too thick.

Paint Hack– To avoid chalking of paints, always use recommended hardener and mixing ratio. You should also make sure to do regular paintwork maintenance.

Flaking Of Paint

Paint flaking happen when the paint has inadequate adhesion and flexibility. Cracking and flaking can also result when paint is applied too thinly. Inadequate surface preparation can also cause these failures. Flaking happens because of high moisture content inside the house, especially in the bathroom.

Paint Hack– Proper ventilation can fix most interior moisture problems. High-moisture areas such as bathrooms with showers should have exhaust fans installed. Scrape sand or scrub with a wire brush to remove all loose and peeling paint.


Moisture is the main cause of blistering. To prevent blistering, avoid painting on a sunny day or under direct sunlight. When blistering goes down to the substrate level, remove the blister by scrapping, then sand the surface. surface preparation is an essential before priming and repainting.


Leaching occurs in a damn area due to moisture. To avoid leaching, painting should be done on a completely dry and prepped surface. If the leaching occurs in a first few days after painting is resin by water. It is a common problem and it doesn’t affect the durability of paint.


Improper drying of paint coating results into wrinkling. Thorough drying of a paint coating prevents wrinkling. Scraping of substrate removes wrinkling and sanding smooth up the then the surface. Priming is the next step after surface preparation. Repainting is later stepping when the primer dries down completely.


Yellowing occurs due to oxidation and oxidation in solvent based paints is a natural phenomenon. Choosing a water based acrylic paint is a better idea to prevent the yellowing. Yellowing takes place in damp areas or the areas without any exposure to sunlight. If the yellowed paint coating comes under direct sunlight again, the color changed back to previous overtime.


Poor color hiding

Poor color hiding is a problem related with quality of paint. Primer hides the underlying coating or original wall surface if it is darker than the paint color. Using better quality paint or quality painting tools are better for hiding underlying surface.

Poor sheen uniformity

Uneven spreading of paint results in poor uniformity of coating.Priming gives Homogeneity to wall surface before application of an upper layer of paint coating. Priming fills the uneven cracks or hole on the surface. Application of an additional coat is essential for unprimed surfaces.


Use of low-quality paint results into formation of small powder or chalky residue on a wall surface. A wire brush or a water wash is helpful in removing the chalky residue. If chalk residue is not present then priming is not necessary. Use of high-quality exterior paint avoids future chalking even on the surface without priming.


Use of interior paint on exterior walks or lower quality paint results in premature lightning o the paint color. Fading is a result of chalking. Removal of as much chalk residue as possible avoids fading. High-quality exterior paints should be used for repainting.
