Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a drywall primer?

Can this be used as a drywall primer?
Asked by: Painter
Yes, although there are better options out there. Basic cheap PVA primer is cheaper and easier to work with and clean up than this primer. But this primer will prime almost anything.

Will this work on vinyl shutters?
Asked by: Angela
Rust-Oleum Zinsser Cover Stain works great on vinyl surfaces, Angela. We recommend making sure the surface is cleaned, dry, and sound before applying the product. You can allow it to dry for 45 minutes and then apply a water or oil based top coat to finish the application. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1

Can I use for basement walls?
Asked by: tt
Thank you for reaching out! Yes, our Zinsser Cover Stain Primer may be applied to basement walls prior to painting. Please keep in mind that this primer is not designed to repel hydrostatic pressure. If there is a moisture or hydrostatic pressure issue on this surface, we recommend applying our Zinsser WaterTite Mold & Mildew-Proof Waterproofing Paint directly to the concrete walls: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-WaterTite-Mold-and-Mildew-Proof-White-Oil-Based-Waterproofing-Interior-Exterior-Paint-Case-of-2-5001/204068078 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

you could, it would stick but you'd get a finer finish if you strip and prep the wall first.

Cover Stain 1 gal. White Oil-Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Primer/Sealer for cat urine & cigarette smoke I've used Zinsser Bin Oil-based primer on 2 separate occassions and both times it has performed beautifully!! The first was a complete remodel of a 2500 sq ft house that had about 9 cats living there. We had to cut out some of the subfloor it was so badly saturated with cat urine. However, we coated the baseboards, walls and pretty much everything else with 2 coats of oil-based zinsser (1 coat probably would have done the trick, but we wanted to make sure the smell was gone). No more cat urine smell - it was amazing. The other occassion was repainting several rooms in a home that was occupied by a heavy smoker (ie. heavy deposits on the walls). We tried to clean the gunk off the walls the best we could with several cleaners because we didn't believe that zinsser would seal it and it would bleed through. However, much to our amazement, 1 coat of zinsser sealed it right up and we painted over it and the smoke smell was gone too. I would use Kilz 2 for basic priming/sealing but if you need a really good sealant - zinsser bin is the way to go!

Fixing up our 90 year old house I have tried every combination of sanding, liquid sand paper, kilz, oil base and latex primers with all kind of pitches and my above recipe has saved me so much time.

I had a problem with paint not adhering to the wall in a bedroom and bath I was painting, after scraping all the paint off I used the primer and it worked as advertised. The smell was the only negative, but my final product was a beautiful job that pleased the customer.
