We had our new house completely striped of all of the old wallpaper, all four layers of it, and had our painters apply 2 - 3 coats of Benjamin Moore Satin paint on our walls and Semi-gloss on the 6 paneled doors and door jambs. It is now 8 months later and we have noticed that the paint is cracking in every joint on every wooden 6 paneled door and their are cracks appearing in every joint on every door jamb and now spider cracks near alot of wall joints near the ceilings.
Our painter had the paint store come to inspect and they claim this is being caused by too much moisture in the house. This isn't possible because our house is in fact way to dry. Does anyone have any insight into this problem? Might this be caused by poor prep work or should I contact Benjamin Moore?
