Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this to protect drywall?

I have an enclosed back patio that has finished drywall walls and ceiling that I plan on opening up and making a screened in patio. Can I apply this to the walls and ceiling to make the drywall not hold moisture and rot? Trying to find another solution besides ripping it all out and putting up green board. Thanks!

How can I remove a section of Perma-guard that was applied too thick and dried white instead of clear?

The last section of the bare wood wall we painted ended up drying white, in stark contrast to the rest that dried properly clear. Not sure if we applied it to thick, or if it had something to do with that section being painted with the very last bit in the can, but we'd like to remove the white part and redo it properly so it'll be clear like everything else. What is the best way to do this? The surface in question is natural stained wood, and it's been about two years since the second coat was applied. Will some kind of liquid paint stripper be best, or should we try to sand it off, or is there some other method/substance that we should use to remove it?

​Rust-Oleum Perma-Guard Mold and Mildew Proof Clear Primer and Sealer should dry crystal clear. It does seem like this one spot may have been applied a little thick, hazing can happen with clear coats when they are on the thick side. We suggest first lightly sanding the area with a 180-220 grit sandpaper to remove the build up. It is a good idea to lightly recoat the area to bring back the sheen.

My Perma-guard isn't drying crystal clear the way previous applications did, what am I doing wrong?

The first two rooms I painted finished up perfectly, the walls are all natural wood and the perma-guard dried crystal clear with a glossiness that made the wood look spectacular. But with my last room (the walls are identical to previous ones) no matter what I try I can't achieve the same crystal clear finish, instead when dry they maintain the subtlest milky opaqueness. They still look good, just not as great as first rooms. I've tried applying it as thinly as possible, I've tried slightly diluting with water, the temp and humidity is the same, I'm using the same brand of brush, and even bought a brand new can. What could I be doing differently/wrong or what outside factors are keeping my recent painting from coming out the way the first walls I painted came out?

That doesn't sound right, and we may need to know more to get to the bottom of this. Hazing or blushing in a clear coating usually denotes moisture entrapment of some kind. Please give us a call at 888-855-1774, and let's see what we can figure out.

Can this product be tinted to white?

need a white coating for interior over flagstone/rubble foundation for mold protection
Asked by: vwman
We do not recommend tinting Zinsser Perma-Guard Primer and Sealer. Doing so may affect the properties of the paint. Instead, use Zinsser Perma-White Mold and Mildew Proof Paint. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-5-gal-Perma-White-Mold-and-Mildew-Proof-Eggshell-Interior-Paint-2770/203950973

5-gal. Perma-Guard Mold and Mildew Proof Acrylic Clear Interior Primer and Sealer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as Advertised The product worked as described, and it took two coats to seal the old wood panel in my basement. Some areas are still a little chalky, but I am hopeful they will continue to dry clear as did most of the panels. I painted one day and waited until the next day to apply a second coat.
