We recently bought a home, under construction. The weather was very cold (in the 20's) when it was time for it to be painted, on the interior...with no furnace. They painted it anyway, and the builder said it wouldn't be a problem. Well, we have now moved in and have discovered that the paint peels right off, with just the slightest amount of pressure. I use the blue painters tape to mark a spot to put up a picture hanger (just barely touching to the wall-enough to lightly stick) but when I carefully peel it off, off comes the paint! Is this because they painted it when it was too cold? Or is it due to something else?
Regardless of the cause it needs to be redone. When we had our house built it was also painted in cold weather but they also put in huge heaters for several hours after painting. I don't know whether or not they had turned on the heat in the house. We had no problems with the paint.
May be the cold but in new construction shouldn't you use a primer first....I know you should with wallpaper.
I would like to suggest you to hire painting contractors, as they are having the ideas on how to paint in new home, they have there concepts on how to paint on various season. Well cool environment never shows any effect but yes sometime due to cool environment, paint spoils and not worked properly in the wall.
