Is It The Paints Fault, Or The Painter?

High Pressure Washing Fail


The picture above shows loose paint removal by high pressure washing. We are not knocking pressure washers, they have their place. But we would like to point out something. The dark wood has not been cleaned of all damaged surface fibers. See the green mold? See the new wood? That is the only spot the new Paint won’t fail. Why?


Or Did the paint fail?


Maybe, maybe not? These are the undersides of debris after high pressure washing.  Look closely, all the paint is intact but why did it peel? See all the black wood fibers? The paint adhered fine, but not to good wood fibers. The damaged wood fibers that were not previously removed separated from themselves. The paint was not the fault. Vapor abrasive media blasting will remove all damaged wood fibers With black mold so that paint can adhere to the good wood and do the job it is designed to do.

Peeling paint, black mold and UV damaged wood fibers were never removed. So the surface preparation method was the problem, Vapor Abrasive Blasting is the solution.
