Hi all, just after some advice.

Last room to decorate is the living room of an old cottage and just above the skirting boards the original paint is peeling / flaking off.

I've bought some peel stop and just wondered on the recommended procedure to repair these walls before final coats of fresh paint.

Do I scrape back the flaky paint, then sand... and then apply the peel stop to the affected areas. THEN use a smooth filler (jointing compound?) over the dried peelstop.

THEN paint?


thanks
Dave

You named it on one. Exact procedure there. :thumbright:

Exactly as you said. A small amount of Peel Stop goes a long way so it's worth painting the Peel Stop over more than just the affected area as if there is any loose paint that you can't yet see, the tackiness of the emulsion is likely to pull it off.

Hi guys thank you.

OK so it looks like the previous owners of the house did NOT mist coat to seal the plastered walls and (only on the lower 1/4 of the walls I can litterally strip the paint off the plaster.

Im getting to the parts where the paint seems to have adhered. Now do I....

1) painstakingly strip ALL the paint from the affected walls?

2) reach the adhered sections and then sand the edges of the paint, peel stop the edges then easy fill the expanse of exposed plaster to flush up against the adhered paint

Im thinking 2!

What a pain in the backside!

Given what you describe, I'd be for trying to get it all off, provided your sanity can handle it. :mrgreen:

You might be able to remove small stubborn areas with an orbital and some P60-ish grade abrasive. In reality, it may be a case of getting as much off as a scraper will shift, and Peelstop the bad areas, then flush, but............any potential high spots this technique creates, may show up in strong directional light - hence trying to get it all off.

See what the light in the room is like. It may be OK to flush off any bad bits and they won't be noticeable.

I would be tempted to do what you said in number 2 and then put a coat of Peel Stop over the whole wall, just in case there's another area that hasn't shown up yet.
