Well, how you can fix at least one of your paint problems anyway.

Avoid painting interior or exterior surfaces when the temperatures are too cold.Interior Solutions

A true do-it-yourselfer knows that not every project goes according to plan. Painting is no exception. Coalescence void is a common problem occurring when paint doesn’t form a continuous film.

Coalescence void happens usually when a surface temperature is too cold, below 50 degrees. Don’t leave this problem unfixed. There are ways to avoid this unfortunate result.

Coalescence void can be avoided by NOT painting interior or exterior surfaces when the temperatures are too cold. Late afternoon painting in unheated areas are vulnerable because the temperature will continue to decrease during the night and prevent proper paint film formation.

Heating the freshly painted surface causes the paint to properly spread before it dries if paint coalescence has already occurred.

Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
