Flaking paint is the result of a lack of adhesion between current layers of paint and previous coats. This can be caused by previous products loosing their ability to hold together or water damage from leaking roofs or pipes. Either way, all of the paint that is flaking, must be removed and if the substrate is powdery it will need to be washed with clean water until this is removed. Once the substrate is clean then, if there is no water stains, the substrate can be undercoated with a premium undercoat sealer like Solver P.S.U. and finished with a couple of coats of Solver Maxiwash Semi Gloss.
