I remodeled my bathroom and used green board on the walls. I primed with latex primer and used Sherwin Williams paint for bathrooms. Within 2 months the paint was peeling in various spots (not everywhere). Sherwin Williams send a rep. out and he said I painted it on too think. SO, I scraped and cleaned, re-primed with Latex and painted with a new gallon of paint. Sure enough, it peeled again in the same places. SO, my boyfriend decided he would try. He scraped and sanded, cleaned with TSP, and used an oil base primer (suggested by Pittsburg Paint guy) and painted. Peeled again in the same spots. He just tried for the 4th time to paint the bathroom, it's only a couple weeks old, and it's peeling again in the same exact spots.

It seems that the drywall had some chemical or something on the surface that is causing the problem. Question is, how to fix it??? Does anyone know?????????????

Is the paint peeling on the drywall or the mud?

It's on the wall not the mud (or joints)

I would prime the peeling spots with Zinsser BIN pigmented shellac as this product sticks and seals in almost anything that would be on your drywall.
