This is my first post on TOH. Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give.
We bought our house (in CT) 2.5 years ago. The exterior (clapboard) had been freshly painted when we bought it. Now there are many areas of the house where the paint is peeling/cracking in large sections. Primarily the sides that get the most sun. I've attempted to attach some pictures to this thread but that does not seem to work. Here's a link to see: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6oqfy1nyctk02iw/paintpeeling.JPG. Also, I can email pics directly to anyone willing to help. A few people have suggested there's a moisture problem and that is "pushing" the paint off, and that makes sense to me. How do I determine a) if this is moisture related b) the cause of the moisture and c) how to alleviate the problem before I spend a lot of time and money on repainting? I have soffit and gable vents in case you are wondering.
Also, assuming the cause is identified and dealt with, any recommendations on what to repaint with and the steps involved?
Thanks so much!
