Question

Zinsser BIN over latex paint?


My contractor today painted my subfloor with latex paint intended for the walls instead of the Zinsser BIN shellac sealant I told him to use . Now what do I do?

I ripped out the carpet to get rid of dog smell and wanted the Zinsser BIN as sealant on the subfloor before putting in the new laminate.

Can I apply the BIN directly over the latex paint? If so, how long should I wait before applying it? I'm a bit concerned because it is shellac and don't know what it might do to the latex.

Or, do I have to strip the latex off the plywood subfloor and start over? Please not!

Thanks,

Carl

You can go over it but I do not see where it would do any good now.
Was it bare wood he painted over?

Re: BIN over latex


Yes, he painted over bare subfloor that had adsorbed dog urine over several years.
