Paint Problems

Question

Hi, i live in a fairly new build house (its coming up to 4 years old) i painted my sons room around 2 years ago using a silk paint from the b&q colour range. the problem is the paint is peeling off the wall. its peeling in huge sheets! i know i didnt use the best make paint, but iv used it before with no bother. i have asked various people why they think its happened and iv heard a wide range of answers. from the fact it was new plaster to i should of sanded the walls first. the walls were painted in a matte magnolia when i moved in. i have peeled off as much paint as i can, which to be honest is the majority. i obviously want to combat this and dont want it to happen again once i redecorate. i have bought dulux matte paint this time, as a few friends have told me its a common problem with matte paint. im wondering if anyone knows why this has happened and if there is anyway i can prevent it?

thankyou

  1. WOW, well the first thing that comes to mind, do people smoke in the room? How high is the humidity? Because to me, it looks like humidity is the issue.
