Painting garage walls
Q. As our painted drywalled garage walls are peeling, our neighbor said the previous owners painted the drywall but did not prime them first. How can we solve the peeling problem?
Can we repaint the inside garage walls with latex after sanding the peeling areas? Thank you.
A. A garage is subject to moisture and considerable temperature fluctuation. If the previous owners didn’t use green board, they should have. The drywall should have been primed and painted with two coats of a quality exterior latex paint.
You can sand the peeling areas, prime the walls with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Gray Primer and paint them as mentioned above, but there is the strong possibility that peeling will continue and be aggravated by the additional weight of the new coats.by
