paint cracking and flaking

Cracking and Flaking

Over time paint can crack and flake revealing the surface underneath. It starts as hairline cracks and eventually flakes off as chips.

Cracking and flaking can be caused by a number of things. The two leading causes are low quality paint and applying the paint too thinly. Low quality paints just don't adhere well and are not flexible enough to change with the temperature. Thin paint will have weak areas which will also have flexibility problems.

Another cause is poor surface preparation. Not cleaning the surface or skipping the primer on bare wood will lead to cracking and flaking.
