This house is down the road from mine. The paint job was new a couple of years ago. Before that the paint was in pretty good shape on all walls of the houses except this one: this wall looked like it does now. I suspected then that there was some sort of moisture problem going on. After they re-painted, and the wall re-peeled so quickly (within six months), I was sure that it wasn't poor prep or cheap primer.
This is the north side of the house (sunlight is visible because the sun is setting).
What do you think? Why is this paint coming off in sheets?
