Questions & Answers

Can this be used to cover water stained moldy basement block walls?

We have painted cement block basement walls and due to some flooding mold started to grow. Looking for a way to cover and seal the damage.
Asked by: CB
Yes, but be sure to ventilate well and wear a properly fitted respirator, designed for volatile organic solvent fumes. If you can't do that, use a No-VOC primer.

can latex be used over this as top coat

Asked by: red
Absolutely. It can be used under either latex or oil finish. Be sure to let it dry thoroughly before top-coating.

will this product adhere to exterior siding that was previously top coated with varnish?

Asked by: jimmy
I used it on rough sawn cedar siding that was coated with varnish. Some but not all of the varnish had weathered away so there were some glossy areas left. Power washing dulled those shinny areas,

I added an addition to my home in 2004 and had to remove a window which was plastered over in the process. I used a K!(Z latex primer after letting the plaster dry for 3 months the top coated it with latex paint. Two weeks later the paint pealed off. I put a painting over it. 13 years later I decided to redo the wall and striped it by pealing sheets of paint off the plastered area and reapplying the K!(Z. The next day it pealed off just like before and I striped the wall again. After researching everything I found Zinsser Cover Stain as being the recommended oil sealer and next price point higher and tried it. It applied easily and was tested after 24 hours drying time and IT STUCK!!!! I sealed the wall and next day resurfaced it to remove gouges made from removing the previous primer coats and on the third day gave it a second coat of the Cover Stain. WOW, what a nice looking wall now. It was a lot of work but very well satisfied with this product so far. If it fails during my life time which I hope last several more years I will certainly post another review.
