BLISTERING
Description:
The formation of bubbles resulting from localized loss of adhesion and lifting of the paint film from the underlying surface

Cause(s):
Painting in direct sunlight or on a surface that is too warm, especially when applying a dark-colored solvent-based coating
Applying an oil-based or alkyd paint over a damp or wet surface
Excess moisture escaping from inside through the exterior walls
Exposure of a latex paint film to excessive moisture in the form of dew, high humidity or rain shortly after the paint has dried

Solution(s):
Caulk or re-caulk open joints, check for roof leaks
Apply paint only within recommended environmental ranges
