Forum Title: Peeling paint on new drywall
Any ideas what is causing our paint to peel? Construction of our home finished August 2015. It was primed in June and painted (3 coats of acrylic latex) in July. The home is 2400 sqf on two levels and and every singe square foot peels off. It has almost been a year and it's the same as when we moved in.... Not adhering at all. They've peeled away a lot of our first level to start over; however, re priming and painting does not stick even when trying a different latex primer. The primer And paint still come off. Oil based primer seems to work better, but would like to know why this is happening!! Thanks for your thoughts!

Normally, since this is a site for professionals we don't allow homeowners to post questions here. But this one is sort of intriguing - AND you are really experiencing a major issue here - so I will allow it to remain open for a limited amount of time. Anyone wishing to chime in, do it sooner rather than later. Also, I'm very curious, what does the company that originally painted it have to say?
