Hey my name is Scott. I own a small company here in central ms. I recently come across a problem that has stumped me. I refinished drywall in a unheated garage. The mud looked great until I started rolling the walls with paint. Almost immediately it started bubbling and then pilling off. Even the paper is coming of the drywall. Two sides are exterior walls with massonite , no vapor barrior and no insulation. what do I need to do

What do you mean by ''Refinished Drywall'' ? And what type of drywall mud and primer was it ? Something does not sound right. :blink:

Glad I'm not in your shoes.

What did you do for Prep?

Did you sand? Each coat? what did the walls look like before?

Need more info!

could be the manufacturer. Or, it may be moisture related, i.e. too much water in your mud. If you bought the material from a supply house, take pics and send them to your salesman.

Made that mistake before. The walls are too cold ! Even if you used premixed mud, when you work it the temp goes up. Certainly will go up for dry mix because of the water temp. Give it a little time, it may dry in ok. If not , you may have some work to do. Good luck !

The wallboard Itself Is soaked with moisture ! That's whats causing the paint to bubble and the paper to come loose.
