prepare and paint a water stained ceiling


What's the best way to prepare and paint over a ceiling water stain on a knock down drywall surface?

Thanks for your reply, but should I attempt to lighten the stain and clean the are first with a watered/bleach solution or other cleaning agent?

Have you resolved whatever caused the stain? I don't think bleaching it is going to accomplish much. Just use the stain blocking primer as suggested, two coats if you want. If the drywall was compromised in this you should probably cut out the damaged sections and replace.

I'm going to get reprimanded for this, but, I must do what I must do.



Easy to use for small spots. No need to clean out a brush or roller. available at your favorite big box store.

ChrisN - have you tried SMart Prime from zinsser yet?? It claims it is the best of both worlds, property of water but seals like a solvent based - specifically says good for water stains. Haven't tried it yet but tempted

If I could get it I would, but it is not around my thriving metropolis as of yet.
