Peeling from masonry and brick
(Detachment of a dried paint film in pieces, usually caused by moisture or grease under the painted surface). The cause of peeling of paint from concrete surfaces is most likely efflorescence. Soluble salts are contained in these materials. They will be carried to the surface when dissolved by water and remain there after the water evaporates. These salts (crystallized form) will push the paint away from the surface.
