Paint for bathroom

I just discovered some peeling on my bathroom ceiling. Ironically, it’s around the exhaust fan. The paint is Sherwin Williams SuperPaint flat.

Can anyone recommend what to do for the re-paint. Should I use different paint? Is there a “best” primer to use?


Any suggestions are appreciated

If I had to guess the ceiling was painted with an oil based paint. Then you put the new stuff on. The new stuff is not going to adhere very well. You probably can rub the paint off with your fingers.

Go back to where you bought the paint. Find the old phart that has been working there forever and ask. The advice that you get is far better than anything that I can tell you.

I think that you are going to have to remove all the Sherwin Williams Super Paint flat that you put on. There is nothing wrong with the Sherwin Williams Super Paint flat but that the surface wasn't prepared properly. No matter what you put over the Sherwin Williams Super Paint flat the adhesion between the current two layers will fail.

I know. Sorry that it isn't what you wanted to hear.

“If I had to guess the ceiling was painted with an oil based paint”

It was new drywall about 10 years ago and has only been painted with latex primer and the super paint.

After some scraping, I discovered that the peeling is mostly occurring over the joint where there’s joint compound. Any thoughts on how to get more “bite” on the joint compound?
