Bathroom ceiling primer and the paper peeling off
 
Hi All,

About a week ago I primed the bathroom ceiling with oilbased primer, after removing the mildew using vinegar in hotwater and laso water and clorox. A small portion of primer peeled off when I tried to remove the masking tape off the wall.

The guys at Home Depot advised me to scrap all the primer off the ceiling. I started to peel off the primer some places the primer does not come off, some place it did come off easily and some places it also peeled of the sheetrock paper.

Please assist me in how to proceed further. Shoule spackle the area where the paper came off and re apply the primer after the sanding the spackle or call a professional.

Please help.

Thanks,
Bee Dee

I would guess that th Kilz did not stick because of dust of some kind of contaminate on the surface,I would scrape off any loose primer clean, ditch the Kilz and apply Zinnser's oderless oil primer.

Thanks for your time and response.

So What I understand is I do not have to remove all the primer but only that which will come off easily.

Secondly what should I do about the drywall paper that came off in patches from the ceiling. Do I need to speckle it or just apply multiple coatings of primer in those pathces.

Thanks

Thanks, for your timely response, this has greatly helped me.

I will do the project in the following sequence you have advised:

1) Prime
2) Spackle
3) Sand
4) Prime Again
5) Paint

Just curious, what is the reason of priming and then spackling and then priming again.

Thanks again.

The primer will lock down the drywall paper and give a base to the mud, which could(would) make the paper bubble, which is not fun.Then you need to prime the whole mess to provide an even surface for your finish paint, which you will buy at a paint store, not Bloes or Homely Depot,RIGHT?:yes: right

Thanks again, I get it.

Paint I am using is from Sherwin Williams but the primer will be from HD.

Thanks buddy.

Do they sell Zinnser @ HD ?:huh:

Just remember the prep work is the single most important step in painting.

beedee 09-05-2009 01:35 PM

Yes, They do sell Zinsser at HD.

I spackled it and it is uneven at many places, because I just spackled the area where the paper came off and at the edges of all unpeeled primer.

I am not sure if I have to spakcle the whole area

I will sand it aacordingly. From what it looks I may have not done a good job.

Thanks,
