Covering water damage


I am painting a bedroom with minor water damage on the ceiling and walls. I'm going to use Sherwin Williams Duration, and need to know if Kilz primer is the way to go, or if the Muti Purpose Sherwiam Williams primer will be sufficient. Thanks in advance!

Covering water damage


Depending how much and how bad-
Neither are made for sealing water damage.
The sure fire primer would be oil cover stain or shellac ( alcohol ) based BIN.
There are some waterborne ones that may do it, perhaps with 2 coats ( dry in between) - Zinsser 123, Z Smart Prime. others.

It's very minimal, you have to be very close to even notice it. I'd like to use something water base if possible.

Smart prime will most likely do what you want, or 123

Covering water damage


I vote for the Cover Stain for this reason: It may look minor right now, but if you use a latex stain blocking primer you may reactivate the stains. The water in the latex lays on the surface & SOMETIMES wicks those stains back through the primer. Sometimes you luck out, but my experience has been to seal these stains with Cover Stain and be done with it.

If it is just a small spot, a couple sprays from a spray can of BIN, Coverstain or Kilz will do the trick.
