Answer: 
Kate, we do not recommend using Zinsser Cover Stain for a subfloor. This product is not designed to withstand the wear and tear of foot traffic, even if applied underneath another flooring surface. Instead, use Zinsser B-I-N Primer and Sealer. This product is excellent for sealing odors and will withstand floor applications. Read More

Answer: 
In most cases Cover-Stain will dry to the touch in 30 minutes and can be recoated after 1 hour. The dry primer film develops full adhesion in 7 days. Lower temperatures, higher humidity and the addition of tint will prolong the dry and cure time.

Answer: 
Happy to help Bob. Both primers are a great option for sealing knotty pine surfaces. As the original, shellac-base primer-sealer, nothing is better at permanently blocking stains, odors and wood knots than Rust-Oleum Zinsser B-I-N Shellac- Base Primer. Please keep in mind B-I-N is for interior use and small spot priming in exterior use. If your surfaces are outside you will want to use Rust-Oleum Cover Read More

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by my paint job went into home depot and the sales person (mark) was very helpful. was going to use a water base primer and glad i didn't. thank you mark. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Product! A little pricey but seems to cover and dry well. Overall, a good product. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The pigmented wood sealer off the shelf No matter what what top coat you are using, this is the best exterior/interior wood sealer for general painting, that is off the shelf and, on the market today. If you need to seal interior wallboard as a surface vapor barrier, this product is the best value. Cuts in nice, rolls best with 3/8s nap or less and, dries very fast. You do require ventilation if used on the interior. It may be tinted as well.... On wall surfaces, it is best to keep a wet edge. As for sealing knot stains, it does an 80% job. Pigmented shellac is the only true knot sealer there is..... July 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Home improvement project The Cover Stain I purchased did the job I was looking for. And this store is the best. August 30, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked well! I used it on walls that had wallpaper backing and glue still and old wallpaper that I couldn't remove and it worked nicely. I applied joint compound over all of it and it adhered just fine. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best cover up! I am currently painting all my windows white and this paint makes the long process 10x's easier. Highly recommended. June 21, 2016
