So, I met with the owner of the condo/rental and was told that the management told him that the insect infestation was from gnats. The owner had already primed a lot of dark green walls with Kilz 2 All-Purpose water based primer. Things looked okay to me, so I sent in a proposal and it was accepted. My partner and I started today doing prep work and such. I thought I saw some "gnat" spots bleeding thru the Kilz 2, so, since we wanted to get the ceilings done first, I rolled a few sections of ceiling paint over a few areas on the ceiling that looked like "spots" had blead through the Kilz 2. After the ceiling paint dried we could see spots bleeding through, so I rolled a few sections over with the Kilz 2. THey bled through.
I called the owner and said that I feared that the little spots might bleed thru the paint and that maybe the ceilings and walls should be primed with a non-water based primer like Cover Stain or BIN or whatever. The owner is aware of this problem and realizes that
My question here for all my friends on Paint Talk is what primer they would recommend to seal over "bug poop?" Coverseal? BIN?
