CRACKING/FLAKING
Description:
The splitting of a dry paint film through at least one coat, which will lead to complete failure of the paint

Cause(s):
Over-thinning paint or spreading it too thin
Poor surface preparation, especially when the paint is applied to bare wood without priming
Painting under cool or windy conditions that make latex paint dry too quickly

Solution(s):
Remove all of the paint by scraping, sanding and/or use of a heat gun, then prime and repaint with a quality exterior latex paint
