Default Painting old pine floors with knots.

Hi,

I am about to paint an attic floor. the floor is made of knotty pine boards, but the house was built in 1873, so the wood is 140 years old. My question is, can I assume that the wood knots have chemically stabilized with time and will not leach out through the paint, or should I prime with a primer such as Kilz?

Thanks for the advice.

If it is a diy project then thank you for taking the time to post on PT but this site is a pro site and while I can appreciate you wanting to seek out the advice of pros I will need to steer you towards a more non pro friendly site www.DIYChatroom.com Many of the members from PT myself included are members there and you should get plenty of good advice there.

Sorry for the inconvenience of the closed thread but please visit the site mentioned above.
