    Hi Lily! First, I would contact the company who renovated the bathroom. If it wasn't long ago, they should correct any problems.

      Thank you for answering my question, it's 3 years ago, the cracks appeared on the painted area only.

    How long ago was this work done? Call whoever did this and explain the situation and ask them how they want to proceed on the matter.

      Thank you for answering my question, it's 3 years ago, the cracks appeared on the painted area only. It's not easy to have the contractors answer your questions when they clearly know that they might have made a mistake. But thank you for taking the trouble to answer my question.

  • From the information provided it just sounds like a bad tile job. Cracks appearing anywhere else in the house?

    Is it just the actual paint cracking or wall itself??? if it's paint you need to control humidity in bathroom leave fan on longer after shower bathing,actually dry off surfaces with towel that moisture is beaded up on,leave bathroom door & shower door/enclosed(?) open for more air flow
