How do I repair peeling paint above the fiberglass shower shell? We just noticed it this week. It is peeling heavliy just above the shower head. We recently had this painted (six months ago) and have never had damage like this before.
How do I go about fixing this area and insuring it does not ahppen again.
In an older house we lived in, I got rid of all the loose paint, then used some plain white tileboard, gluing it into place with liquid nails. Never had a peeling problem after that! To repaint, I think you'd have to make sure your shower area is completely dry, and you might even have to strip the paint (if it's plaster). Then prime it with a good primer like Kilz (so your new paint sticks to the wall), and paint it. I've also heard that in rooms that are a bit damp, it's better to apply a paint that has more gloss to it, or get a paint made specifically for bathrooms. (It must evaporate the water quicker.)
