Forum Title: School Paint Problems - NEED ADVICE!
We just finished a job repainting cinderblock hallways in a school. The product we used is from Cloverdale paints(A Canadian company) called EcoLogic. They market that its designed for institutional use over old oil and to replace oil coatings. Supposed to be self-priming as long as you sand glossy surfaces - which we did sand things out fairly thoroughly. So anyhow, some kid pushing a cart scraped the wall a few days after we finished and it took off some paint. The school principle has been going around scratching at the walls and thinks its coming off too easily. The reality is its not really bad, but after a week it is coming off a little easier than I would like. I talked to my paint rep and he says give it 24 days cure time. I am a little concerned though this still won't cut it. Mainly because the principle thinks its a big issue. (a little exaggerated in my opinion)The budgets are sensitive with the school, and since they have limited funds, they are really not pleased if they think they are getting a substandard job. How would you go about fixing this and handling it so you can get paid?

You need to get past the 30 day cure time to know for sure. Tell the principal to keep his hand off and let it cure. Now if it's still adhering like it should after 30 days your kinda out of luck and really the only way to fix it would mean removal which I can't imagine would be fun on block walls.
