Ceiling Stain

by P. Schubert


I had a water leak on my ceiling which left a big stain which I have tried to paint over with a quality Matt emulsion but the stain keeps coming through as if I never painted it,is there a sealer I can use to stop this.

Regards Phil.

Water stain on the ceiling

Hi Phil.

What your looking for is an solvent based stain blocker primer such as Kilz or Zinsser (you can google either for more info).

The issue that your having is that your using a water based paint over a water type stain. Using a solvent or oil based product, that's especially made for removing such stains, should do the trick.
