We have a combination of drywall and wallpaper on our bathroom that we are remodeling. Can this product be used on both the drywall and wallpaper as a primer because we are going to retexture over the entire surface?
Asked by: Karen
The GARDZ is designed to seal in the glue AFTER wallpaper is removed and it really does work. You may be successful applying the product over the drywall and wallpaper BUT you're risking having a mess on your hands. I would suggest you take the time to remove the wallpaper to ensure a proper "base" on your walls before you texture. But...that's just one person's opinion. Best wishes with your project.

I have a wallpaper disaster - original 1964 wallpaper was put up on drywall paper without primer, so taking down the wallpaper is destroying the drywall paper with every type of wallpaper removal method. I've resigned myself to thoroughly damaging the drywall and have huge areas (basically the whole wall) of revealed brown cardboard/paper in the drywall. I've been planning to use Gardz to seal that up after it's all down. My question is: after I use Gardz on the damaged/brown paper drywall, does it need a couple skim coats before primer/paint or can I prime/paint right over the Gardz?
Asked by: Jay
You can go right over the Gardz. We deal with this often in our wallpaper business. I would however recommend making sure that you get a good coat of the Gardz on the wall to make sure it is covered well. It is an excellent sealer!

Can I use this directly over a skim coated ceiling? Will I need a primer afterwards?
Asked by: tc909
Happy to help! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Gardz Problem Surface Sealer prevents bubbles that form when damaged drywall is skim coated with spackling or joint compound. Please keep in mind that since this is a sealer, a coat of primer may be needed to ensure full coverage. This sealer can be topcoated with either oil or water-based products! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

It seals and stabilizes torn drywall paper (in my case the result of removing wallpaper). I just wish I had stumbled across it sooner, or that the employees at the home improvement stores were aware of it to have directed me to it when I asked them. It would have saved me both time and money. Live and learn. I found out about it by stumbling across a random YouTube video at referred to it. Be sure to follow the instructions about peeling/cutting away all the loose paper. There were a couple of spots where I wasn't as conscientious about doing that that I needed to redo. But that was my fault, not the fault of the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Product We'd never heard of needing to seal "raw" sheetrock until having six rooms and two large closets done (two year remodel project!). I ordered the four pack (4-gal.) GARDZ Drywall primer/surfacer on-line (only way to buy it!). The on-line (Bing Search) information states the product is very thin.. watery thin, in fact, and care MUST be taken, least one make a HUGE mess. The GARDZ rolls on very easy, too easy in fact! (made the regular paint "feel" like mud ;-} ) Tho it states the product dries in three hours for top-coating, we allowed a full twenty-four hours. So far, we have used over three-quarters of one of the four gallons purchased... coverage area is stated to be between "350 to 450 sq ft.".. in our case over 3/4 of a gallon covered 250 square feet!! I do not believe the remainder of this gallon is going to cover another one hundred, much less two hundred, square feet!! I might note, I have NEVER had ANY paint cover the stated area!! GARDZ sealed the "raw" sheetrock (paper-covered areas), the "mudded" seams and areas very well. We are very pleased with the product. It is all it claims to be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GARDZ DRYWALL PRIMER - DID THE JOB Applied primer with roller/brush, covered new MR Drywall (green paper) well, one coat and waited overnight to paint - needed 2 coats of ceiling white paint, 1 coat of a light brown flat wall paint covered well and didn't apply a 2nd coat. My first time for installing new drywall, including the joint compound, and priming. Dry primer had a slight sheen when dry, the paint rolled smoothly over the 'sealed', smooth texture. Ordered a 4 gallon box of Gardz online from HD and received it within 2 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Pinnacle of Primer/Sealers Just finished removing 2800 sq. ft. of popcorn textured ceiling and refinishing it to a smooth surface. Used Gardz over old drywall, new drywall and skimmed surfaces. Followed with two coats of flat white latex ceiling paint. I have several rooms with many windows and I can detect absolutely no evidence of flashing or shadows anywhere. I have also used Gardz to seal walls after removing wallpaper and it worked perfectly as a primer/sealer in that application also.

We scraped ceiling, wiped down with damp sponge mop 3 times (drying between), put on 2 coats of Gardz, and painted. Absolutely no bubbling or peeling of paint like we experienced prior to discovering Gardz. Highly recommend!

My application was to cover many layers of old wallpaper -- this did the trick! After applying a very heavy layer, my drywall guy came in and "mudded" over everything. Now my walls look great and can be painted.
