New SheetRock -- Quality Sealer\Primer
I just finished gutting a "soon-to-be" dining room and have hung\mudded\sanded new drywall on the walls, but was lucky (or depending upon your viewpoint unlucky) to save\keep the ceiling intact.
Anyway, my questions:
speedhide is well known and used a lot. It's popular and acceptable for your applications. (ceiling too).
I have used, continue to use, and can strongly recommend that product for both your applications
Although the Speed Hide is technically a "contractor grade" line (less than premium), the Interior Latex Sealer performs as well as, or better than other premium line products for similar applications (new drywall)
It performs well enough for me to use and recommend to use on even high-end projects
Although SHILS works best on new drywall, and technically there may be better primer/sealers for the ceiling, unless the ceiling has other issues, it will work just fine there too
Personally I would not buy a separate primer for the ceiling in this case, whether for a job or for my own home
I had heard that this stuff was really good for its sealing and "hiding" qualities, and since the new drywall was put up by me, I can certainly stand to benefit from both.
Hey SlickShift while I have you, I had always been a bargain shopper when painting in the past, but since this room has been gutted and is all new construction I really want it to come out looking great. What is your recoomendation for paint on top of this? I have learned that spending extra on paint truly saves you in the long run.
Thanks Again fellas...
The better quality paints generally save you money in the short run too
That is, especially if you value your time
Many DIYers don't count that, and it's a shame
Personally I'd much rather spend one weekend morning painting my bathroom, then the whole weekend and save $10, if you know what I mean
(ironic because most DIYers that say they hate painting and want to do it as little as possible generally buy the cheaper paints and cheap themselves into more time painting more often...thus hating painting even more)
The better paints will generally go up quicker, better looking, take less coats, last longer, more dirt resistant and cleanable...etc...
Ben Moore's Regal line, Pittsburgh's Manor Hall line, or Sherwin Williams premium lines (though I find the Super Paint line very runny) are all good choices I can recommend
They all have "contractor" lines too, but the premium lines are better as described above and I'd stick with them
ha, ha.... anyhow, that's a good way to put in...
