Enlighten me Brushjockey
 
What are these wonderful benfits of using Gardz if not to repair damaged drywall?

Brushjockey 12-05-2011 09:17 PM

What makes Gardz work so good for ripped SR paper is that it soaks in and when dry- will not re wet. So it will do a film much like an oil - water barrier .
So it is ideal for sealing in paste residue.
It also seals walls great- so on new rock or one that has been skimmed or even lots of repair- will get a great even no porosity prime for any sheened paint to follow.
Excellent for priming before hanging paper for same reason.
I even use it as a clear to seal edges of tape so there is no bleed through.
And ready to recoat in less than an hour
There are probably more- but there is a start.

It also drys clear, so that if you slop it all over your trim, it won't show.:whistling2:

OK, I agree with you on what Gardz can be used for but remember I was responding to a particular situation, Her wallpaper removed easily meaning her walls are probably already sealed for the most part. Gardz has a very loose consistantcy so it is not the easiest material for a DIY to apply ; if it cannot soak it will run and drape on her. She is not rewallpapering so she needs no sizing and it can not be tinted to help facilitate topcoat finish. ChrisN says to let it slop all over the trim/mopboard/floor/carpet and when it dries you won't see it. Does it mimmick the sheen of the surface it is dried to and if so it is truly a magical substance.

No, Chrisn said IF you slop some on the trim, it'll be less likely to be seen, not "let it slop all over". :laughing:

She removed paper- easily or not there is going to be paste residue. That always needs to be cleaned and sealed. Gardz will do that.
I agree that Gardz is tricky to handle- but who said this painting thing was easy?
I will give the best advice I know of , and if you go through posts here we do explain (often ) the steps to work with products.
Oil is also a pain to work with if you have no experience.
And I am pretty sure that Chris was being a little offhanded-
I mask off before Gardz and then it is already there for the paint.

Exactly, and yes, a little off handed, I certainly was not being literal, I will in the future try to be specific and precise and correct and so on.

Touche fellas. You have all made good comments and suggestions. I just found this site a couple days ago I have not read enough of your comments to know your personalities so forgive me Chrisn, it was not my intention to rub your rhubarb. I have been painting and installing wc for 25 years between Dallas and now Mich but this is the first time I have interacted in this way with others in the trade. I will continue to read your posts and if this old dog can learn a few new tricks so much the better.

Ron - Glad to see you here- hang out, sit back and chime in when it suits you!
I have found talking shop online like this has upped my game in very many ways. There is a pro board- Paint Talk where Chris and i and others also hang out. That can be a real rough crowd- so go easy till you get a feel- but great info contractor to contractor.
This board is fun to compare notes on how to handle problems while helping the DIY'er.

Trust me my rhubarb has been rubbed harder than that and if you are as old as me than we can and will certainly learn new tricks. Give Paint Talk a go if you feel real adventurous, as Brush said it's a tough crowd but the knowledge is golden.

Is Paint Talk a part of this site or another location?
