moisture resistant primer
 
just googled this and read that in BATHROOMS you should use a moisture resistant primer (which SW carries) followed by mildew resistant paint.

Do you pros use moisture resistant primer and is Zinnser Gardz moisture resistant?

Also read that "SICO" is recommended for bad spacklers. Personally I've never heard of it before.

brushjockey,

I planned to order Gardz, but then wasn't quite sure after googling.

almost ordered Gardz from a Grainger site, then checked your link and yours is 'problem sealer' and the Gardz I found is 'high preformance'.

Didn't realize Zinsser had different Gardzs ?

different label- same thing

Moisture-resistant primers or "Low-Perm" primers are designed for new drywall to keep moisture from the face paper. It is used alot in sealed buildings with an HVAC controlled environment that is not affected by the outside weather. If the room already has paint on it, then you will need a primer for repairs or intercoat adhesion.

I am very annoyed at the moment.

Bought the Zinsser Ceiling paint, no problem. Walmart carries it.

CANNOT find Zinsser Gardz. Went to the Pro desk at HD and they didn't know what I was talking about and then they found it, but only in a 5 gal size. I only want one gallon.

I couldn't really find a site online (but will look farther) where I could just order it.

Why is this so hard?

A store where the pros go, like Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin-Moore, PPG will have it in ones. Also, any wallcovering store will. Try to avoid the big boxes when you need a specialty product or advice. You usually come out empty-handed and mis-informed.

I think it has been said, repeatedly, that availability of Gardz changes from one region to the next. Why? I'm sure I don't know..

As brush pointed out, not necessarily, I cannot get it anywhere around me.

BIN is also moisture resistant, though I don't know to the degree of Gardz

Don't know about BM but SW at least around me does't carry any Zinnzer products.

None of my local paint stores carry Zinsser, the only place I can find them locally are the box stores.I understand why the paint stores don't carry it,they want to push their own products but I don't understand why ALL the box stores don't stock the same products.Local environmental regulations? IDK.

I have read and been told it is considered haz. mat. but if you read the safety sheet on it it really doesn't show anything.
