Default Newly Painted Door Chipping?

So I painted an exterior door 2 weeks ago and 2 days later, it began chipping on edges/corners of the frame and door.

My procedure included removing door and temporarily installing plywood in the opening.

I sanded nearly all of the previously stained surfaces to bare wood, vacuumed, and primed with 123 plus latex primer. I use this primer frequently over oil based surfaces and top coat with latex paints.

I spot sanded much of the surfaces and painted three coats of Snap Dry semigloss following the recommended drying times.

Any guesses why it would be doing this??

I don't know why the pics aren't oriented uprightly. Sorry.

Being well under a month, it would still be tender, did HO try to move large item in and bump the fresh work? It should not of chipped in that fashion without being banged, I would think. Did you do any kind of testing after seeing this. (like a tape & pull)

Older couple who don't use front door much.

I told them to let it cure a little longer and I'd check it out. Maybe sand a few places and see what happens.

I used an fflp 312 tip and did three coats (not too heavy) and wondered if millage had an effect.

Here's another door I did a month ago with no issues. It was also previously finished.

Snapdry with too much colorant in it. Simple.

Those chips are happening in some pretty odd places. Referring to the second pic in the up high places.

I'd say ditch the snap dry.

A customer of mine said he had all kinds of issues with Snap Dry adhesion issues. I gave him a gallon of Sierra High Performance Beyond and solved his problem. It dries fast so a door can be rehung in a day. Give it a try.

The chips are happening above the door & window without any assistance (its just falling off)?

It seems more likely something was bumped into it or they ran a fingernail over the area before it was fully cured ya?

[QUOTE=Theoriginalpacman;1663343]Snapdry with too much colorant in it. Simple.[/QUm

I've had the same issue with All-Surface enamel (reds) from SW. PAC is right. SW reds rely on SOOOOOOOOOO much colorant that there isn't much in the way of solids in the can. You basically did a color wash and not really a paint job on that door. A leaf blowing in the wind can knock the color off.......

Default You ain't gonna believe this...

After much careful observation, the HO figured out the problem and even bore witness to the perpetrator.
Power washing? No.
Hitting, bumping, scratching? No.
Red colorant in SnapDry? Possibly?
Adhesion? Definitely not a problem.
Crazy hungry grass hopper? Yes.

We even found info on the web of bugs eating house trim, especially newly painted wood. Weird.

Has anyone ever heard of this? It really makes sense.

I had a house one time where a woodpecker kept attacking it as we were painting it. They put holes in everything. I'm not sure if bugs were underneath the fascia and siding or if it was a territory marking thing but he was drilling holes every evening as fast as we could fill them.

Never ever heard of that before. Glad you figured it out. Might do something to that grasshopper, (humanely, of course), to make an example out of him. That way, his friends won't gravitate to the buffet which is your finish work.

Evidently, some summers have larger quantities of grasshoppers and in these times, they consume unconventional food sources in the frenzy.

I'm hoping the door will be less edible once cured and will spot sand and touch up then. The customers are really amused by the whole thing.

Wow, that's a new one on me. Years ago, we were painting trim on a brick house and every day at about 3 p.m. these little black bugs (small beetle like creatures) would swarm the newly painted areas and some would drop into our paint buckets. All we could figure out was that the latex paint smell was attracting them somehow. You can't make this stuff up.
