I've just have professional painters and decorated paint my wall. The wall was in good condition before painting.

They applied a primer and then two coats of Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt Rock Salt - Product code:100245

They are at a lost to explain the cratering phenomena pictured.

They suggest that I may need to replaster my wall to prevent this and that this could be a reaction to previous paint underneath.

Have anyone seen this before?

What primer did they use, do you know? What was on the walls before they primed them?

DO NOT GET a plasterer in. It sounds like they ficked up, and charged you more for something that may not have been necessary, the primer. What you got is cissing which is a possibility when the paint does not want to adhere to the previous coat. Cissing is unusual with emulsion paints though, there again I am a DIYer. I guess they have been paid in full by now.

Maybe some of the professionals here should have a look at your photo ...

It looks like they have used the wrong type of roller...It just need sanding back then re-painted with a better roller...It's not cissing.

I suspect they’ve not sanded the wall down? I’m guessing due to them using a primer before the emulsion they half expected something to react in the first place?

Was it a paint or wallpaper before, and what primer did they use? And did they primer and paint in the same day?

And a professional decorator wouldn’t suggest you re-plaster your walls because of a paint problem.

Thank you all. I’ve realised that I might not have got all my facts right.

The wall was previously painted.

I’m not sure that they did use any primer before applying the paint but they did sand it down.

I have not paid them yet.

The suggestion about replastering was for another room which experienced the same problem. We did actually proceed to do that but when this problem reoccurred in this room I was not prepared to do so as I felt that they must be a better way.

After discussion with the main contractor who sub contracts the painting. We have decided to call in the Dulux rep to assess and comment.

I will update this thread once I get some feedback.
