Which Primer?


I have a house here that has iron in the water/soil. I'm going to topcoat with Duration Satin, but I want to seal this staining first. I'm interested to hear what other people would use. I'm thinking about a fast dry oil primer, as it's still humid out here. Think I could use a latex sealer? Thanks!

Re: Which Primer?


You're taking a chance with latex. Even though I believe they are perfected now for many apps.

Its not a big area. I would use Cover Stain oil base. Then I will know I have done the best job I could.

You only need a couple hours in the PM to do it.

What kind of siding is that ? Masonite (no bead) ? Don't use latex.

I like Zinsser but the latex doesn't seem to be the best stain blocker. Judging by the looks of the stain I would want to use oil based for sure.

As bad as that stain looks. It won't bleed thru no where near the way it would if that same color water stain was on a drywall ceiling from a roof leak.

I think a latex will seal it just fine with no bleed thru.

If they can't come up with something to stop the splash up why bother at all. Exterior paint should be able to cover, not ceiling paint tho

Re: Which Primer?


I believe it is the sprinklers. HO said he was having it fixed/altered so that it won't happen anymore. Not sure what he's doing, but hired me to cover it anyway. It's cement board siding. I think I'm going to do the oil primer. I don't really want to mess around with acid. It's on all sides of the house. This is the worst though. Going to be painting the house all this week, so will post some pics later on. Thanks for all the input.

Or CLR. Its not that big an area, one quart applied with a garden sprayer and scrubbed should remove enough to allow a good water based primer to work, but why not use an oil based or shellac primer and forgo the cleaning part? (again, its not that big an area). You could use a Bullseye latex primer, but it might take 2 coats.
