Primer / Sealer question for new drywall


Getting ready to paint in my basement soon. We used 1/2" mold resistant purple board through out. (some green board under the stairs too)

I am getting mixed opinions on what I should start out with... a drywall sealer or just a primer. Any help is appreciated.

I moved this to 'painting' for you---

I'll leave this for a painter to answer---I believe I would use a good primer rather than PVA---but listen to the painters----Mike----

Zinsser 123 is all you'll need.
Looks like you still have a lot of sanding to do. Once you prime you'll see it. Fix and prime again before moving on to painting two coats.
(Screw patches are not hazy enough, tape lines are not mudded out wide enough.)
If you can feel it with your hand it's going to show.
Could have saved a whole lot of money skipping the green and purple board. It's only moisture resistant on the front side not the back side.

Thanks for the info. That pic is not the finished drywall. (I noted that under the pic). I just didn't have a more recent photo yet. All the joints are feather out properly and sanded now.

I will check out that stuff. Latex based?? Thanks

ya any of that green board, blue board, purple board,etc. is a joke. i've pulled out lots of board with mold on it after floods. not worth the extra money.
Different companies make new drywall primer.

Although 123 will work just fine, this MIGHT save you some $$

That board is not WATERPROOF it is only moisture resistant. That is why it is approved for moist areas but not wet areas. You can use it in bathrooms but not in showers.

I bought it because I like purple and green.

For real though, it was on sale and cheaper than regular rock at the time, plus I had some discounts applied. I bought 80 sheets of 1/2" on the first order at a $9.80 a sheet. The bottom side of the soffit we used 1/4" to save a little bit more of head room.

That was a mistake. Should have been at a minimum 1/2 light weight or your going to get sagging and screw pops.

I do not think it will sag. There is a center support. Everything is screwed and glued with PL 400. The butt joint has a nailer also. (not pictured)
