Just a quick inquiry. I recently rebuilt my patio and installed new posts. They are pressure treated 4x4's w/ radiused corners. I primed them with Kilz, then painted them with an oil based (alkyd?) paint. Now the paint is bubbling up somewhat in places, like 2"x2" bubbles. The paint is very pliable, which I guess is a characteristic of oil based paints. What do I do? Will the bubbling go away on it's own?

how long between the coats of paint and did you use water base or oil base kilz?

moisture got to it. i think it comes with the territory. oh make sure wood isnt on the ground and that you put those iron raisers under it b/c it wll rot if you didnt.

nope, none of the above.. you said PRESSURE TREATED.

you have to wait till the pressure treating dries out of it, then paint it.
just strip it, let it sit a month or so, repaint.
