Question on Gardz


Just finished applying Gardz on all the walls of my family room after stripping all the wallpaper and patching the walls - which were a mess under the paper.

Do I need any other primer over the Gardz? I'm worried that I won't get a consistent sheen to the paint given all the spot repairs on the walls. Will any of the repairs show through the Gardz or am I all set for my finish coat?

Question on Gardz


As long as all the patches have a coat of Gardz on them then you will be fine with 2 finish coats and paint sticks to Gardz with no problems.

Question on Gardz


Gardz is a great primer. But because it's clear, it obviously wont help with coverage, but it does a great job in evening out the porosity of the patches, and kind of "resetting" the whole surface.
Paint ready, expect 2 coats.

Since you brought it up, technically it might help with coverage. Here's just one example. You're repainting the walls the same color as before, but you need a primer for whatever reason. In this case you're better off with a clear primer than a white primer, or even a beige tinted primer. (Assuming the clear primer does everything else you want it to do.)

Question on Gardz


You need to lighten up, Francis. I'm not "nit picking" someone else's answer, I'm pointing out what can be an advantage to using a clear primer.

From Kilz Klear's ad page: "Particularly effective for ‘same color painting’, KILZ KLEAR will bond and seal porous and chalky surfaces with little change to current color."

Question on Gardz


So what? That's not the point. At all. Use your noggin man. We're talking about clear primers, where sometimes clarity is actually desirable from a color standpoint.
