I'm ready to burn my front door on the fire and fit a PVC one....

ok slight exaggeration but i'm really at the end of my tether here....

I've spent the past 2 weeks on this s*dding door.

Stripped completely and sanded/cleaned... prepped like there was no tomorrow!

2 coats of FB resin blocker
2 coats of FB exterior undercoat
3 coats of FB top coat colour

The door has been back on its hinges TWO DAYS (had left it indoors to set for about a week whilst I did the rear of it.

Small bit of sun this afternoon and this monstrosity happens! pics below.... TWO DAYS!!

P*ssed off is an understatement. Im going to have to strip it and start again.

Can anyone recommend please a proper primer/treatment to help combat this bubbling as clearly the FB resin blocker can't handle it! The door is in the sun all afternoon to sunset so I need something hardcore to seal the door.....

So so so annoyed! argghhhh

all and any advice welcomed please thank you, we are selling the house so need a decent front door finish! Would like to keep the same colour.

Is it a lost cause, and am I going to have to get the door stripped and just kept as treated wood!?

(some of the bubbles were huge... i put small slits in them with a stanley blade and pressed the air out. No liquid or sap came out... it was just air in them. Lifted back to the bare door so def a primer / resin block fail)

Do I strip and use an aluminum wood primer to start again with?

or perhaps Linseed oil paint?

What did you use to strip the paint, and what was the door cleaned off with? It looks like there may have been residual chemical stripper in the grain, but given the level of preparation you mention, it seems odd.

Sanded it all back when I prepped.

It was exhausting!

Not quite enough - Nightmare!!!

Do you just clean off the stripper or is there a neutraliser?

No chemicals were used to strip the door. I used 60/80/120 grit paper.

Cleaned off with turps.

I really don't have the energy to take the thing off again and strip it!

You said you cleaned it off with "Turps", Turps is an oily substance and it could have soaked into the wood, when the sun came out perhaps the heat lifted the turps out of the wood hence blotches :dunno: just a thought, I would have cleaned it with a solvent, which would have evaporated before having chance to soak into the wood.

:dunno: I had a door to re-dec about 6 years ago now. Post 2010 Voc oil based gloss , full sun (south facing)

Similar issue.

Sanded back and used Zinsser 1-2-3 followed by undercoat and 2 x topcoat. Still looks (almost) as good as the day I did it.

That's to be expected when you travel by Tardis. :roll: :wink:

You'll need to strip (or at least sand back to sound) either way. You are also getting towards the time of year when exterior decorating can be problematic

ie. too damp/cold
