I am alittle confused about your problem. When you say boards are you refering to drywall?

I am going to throw out a general answer until I hear more.

The paint chipping seems to be one of prep, lack of cleaning, putting oil paint on latex, or just bad paint.

If the surface that was painted was a bit wet, then there is your problem. If the area, acquires condensation, there is your problem, If you have had leaking in the past, then i would say that not replacing or not allowing the surface to dry is, I repeat IS your problem here.

Remember, in a real world, you cannot apply oil to latex, but latex to oil will work. Remember in areas that you are unsure of, be sure to prime and sand and prep.

Good Luck ,
