paint didn't adhere
The contractor who painted the interior of my house recently really goofed up the laundry room. Iím having difficulty getting him to come back and fix his mistake, and Iím not sure I even want him involved. So, I may be forced to fix this myself, but I need advise.
Hereís the problem: the paint did not adhere. Large patches of it could easily be peeled off; other areas have sort of adhered, but the paint is still soft (after more than a year) and can be easily scratched with a fingernail. I assume this problem was caused by improper surface preparation and that the new paint will all have to be removed. My question: how do I get this new paint off the walls and ceiling, without damaging the orange-peel texture?
All advice and suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.
