My garage was sheetrock covered and textured and previous owners used
gidden flat white paint on the ceiling and walls.
I am going to repaint with an enamel for better liquid resistance and
easy cleaning. I have bought the Behr eggshell Enamel. This will go
on the walls and the ceiling.
My question is that should I prime it with kilz 2 latex "primer"..
During my multiple visits to home depot one guy told me to use it, and
next time another person told me I don't need it because the existing
paint is flat, the enamel would seal and cover it just fine, and the
kilz would be wasting time and money.
Another question is that I have a water stain from a previous water
leak that has been fixed. If I paint over this spot with primer and
enamel and the leak re-occurs, am I not going to be able to see this
until the condition is very bad? The way it is now, water have no
problem forming a yellow mark over the existing flat latex paint.
