Water Stain on Ceiling

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Flooded toilet (please don't ask how that happened) reulted in water leaking to the ceilingbelow in the basement. It is a sprayed ceiling and the water found a sheetrock seam and now there is a tinted spot about 3" wide and about 6' long. Any recommendations in covering it up? My dad mentioned that Kilz primer works good for it. BTW, the ceiling was sprayed about 6 months ago so it is new. Thanks guys!

Killz and binz are just sealers, you will have to paint over them to hide the stain. My recomendation is Prat and Lambert "Red Seal" flat oil white. It Sucks to use and you will have to paint the entire ceiling, but it will seal and hide in one step.

As said a sealer like Killz will be needed to stop it from bleeding through. By sprayed you might mean textured. You can get the Killz in a spray can, that would be the best way to apply it without damaging the texture. Now you'll need to add color to the area that has been sealed and blend that into the area around it. If color was added to the texture thats what you'll use. Again the best way to do that is by spraying. You can get a spray can that you add paint to and then pressurize.

I had the same problem kills covered it but it eventually bled through again,but now after the kills apply a coat of shellac,then paint.A 2 lb. cut of shellac is sanding sealer and I believe you can buy it in spray cans.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
