Water Stain on Ceiling

6 posts in this topic

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.

As said a sealer. I'd then prime it with some Zinzer primer and then paint.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
