I just moved in my first house in August and I am noticed that one they used flat paint because when i tried to wipe the walls the painted started to come off but my issue is my fireplace mantel.
The paint on the fireplace mantel started to lift and crack. If i push the paint where it is lifting it will crack and i can start to pick it off. What would cause this? I don't know what type of paint was used or if they removed the existing paint prior to painting it again. How can i fix this problem and what type of paint can i use? :(
