PVA vs. Latex primers
new int. drywall entire house. I painted/coated with Glidden PVA (sprayed on smooth walls). Question: should I use a Kilz II latez primer (or other latex, stain or mildew resistant primer) over the top of the PVA ?? possibly only in wet areas, or is PVA good to go and I can go right to paint.
I would recommend a primer coat of zinser 123 over the pva seal coat. You will ens up with much better paint coverage:thumbup1:
Go to your local paint store (as opposed to BigBoxCo.) select a paint from near or the top of their lines, and ask the folks behind the counter what to use.
Whatever you do, stay away from the evil KilzII
I'm surprised people are still using PVA primers
A 100% acrylic is much, much, better
Kilz2 is a stain blocker, not a primer
And it's a bad stain blocker also
...and it has a higher rate of failure than even PVAs
(huge failure rate on the Kilz2...many real Paint Stores won't carry it)
As it's already "primed" I hesitate to say it needs more, but in this case I would recommend using a real primer before painting
Zinsser's 123, Ben Moore's Fresh Start, Sherwin Williams Prep Rite, Pittsburgh Speed Hide Primer/Sealer...they are all pretty good
And yeah, you won't find them at a big box
Shop where the painters do
If they could find a quality product and a good price at the big boxes, they'd all shop there
They don't...and it's because the products don't even come close to Paint Store products
acrylic on top of the pva OK?
thank you guys for the input, since acrylic is much better, I would like to go over the pva (2 coats?) with it, any prob. with that combo? and of course any brand of choice? thanks again.
No reason for two coats acrylic, one will be fine
I've used all the ones I mentioned (including the bad ones...and some others), and would not hesitate to recommend the Z, BM, SW, or P primers I mentioned
