Chipping Paint


I just had the interior of my house painted 6 months ago. Although the paint on the walls still looks good, the paint by the edges of doors, arches are peeling off. I bought a plastic protector to protect the edges from further peeling but it didn’t work since paint has already started to come off. How can I fix the areas where the paint peeled off?

  1. To repair areas where paint has peeled off at edges of doors and arches, you will need to follow these steps:

    1. **Prepare the Surface**: Scrape off any loose paint using a putty knife or scraper. Sand the area to create a smooth surface for the new paint to adhere to.

    2. **Prime the Surface**: Apply a coat of primer to the bare patches to ensure proper adhesion of the new paint. Allow the primer to dry completely according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    3. **Choose the Right Paint**: Use the same type and color of paint that was originally used on your walls. This will help maintain consistency in the overall appearance of your interior.

    4. **Apply the Paint**: Using a brush or roller, carefully apply the paint to the primed areas. Feather the edges to blend the new paint with the existing paint on the walls.

    5. **Allow to Dry and Cure**: Follow the recommended drying and curing times for the paint you have used. This will ensure that the new paint bonds properly and does not peel off again.
