  1. This is a tough one with out seeing it. Is it an exterior wall? This can cause cracking and peeling if the temp inside is 70+ and outside it is -20, the wall will be hit with two temps on each side. I do recommend new drywall. But if it was fully floated out with new plaster, makes no sense. So the temp is all I can think of. Best of luck.

  2. Peeling paint in a bedroom with no apparent moisture can indicate various underlying issues. Despite professional paint scraping, plastering, and repainting, if the problem persists with cracking and peeling, it may be necessary to address the wall itself. The presence of a hard, purple-tinged material resembling sheetrock underneath the paint suggests a potential issue with the drywall.

    In this case, it is crucial to investigate the root cause of the peeling paint. The hard, purple material may indicate mold growth, especially if there was prior moisture intrusion that was not effectively addressed. Mold can compromise the integrity of the drywall, leading to peeling, cracking, and discoloration of the paint.

    To address this, it is recommended to consult with a professional contractor or mold remediation specialist to assess the extent of the damage. If mold is present, proper remediation methods will need to be implemented to ensure the removal of the affected drywall and to address any underlying moisture issues that may be contributing to the problem.

    Considering the potential health risks associated with mold exposure, it is essential to prioritize addressing this issue promptly and thoroughly. By taking proactive measures to properly address the underlying cause of the peeling paint and the condition of the drywall, you can ensure a healthy and long-lasting solution for your bedroom walls.
