can i paint over this with a teak stain?
I am currently preparing my facias to paint, and plan to use this undercoat, will it be ok to then use a teak stain on top of this? DIY Novice, Thanks
Hello Gavinmc45. you cannot use this product prior to using a woodstain. firstly the product will reduce the absorbency of the wood, which the stain needs in order to grip and therefore dry properly. it will also dry opaque, whereas stains in comparison are translucent. Therefore using a primer will obliterate the wood surface and therefore affect the finish of the stain. Woodstains must be applied directly to bare wood in order to work effectively. Thanks

Smelly paint blocker
I have been advised that I need an alkali resistant sealer for my walls to cover a bad smell from defective paint. Would this be suitable and block odours from the previous paint on the wall?
Hello CHubbard. This product being water based will not be suitable to hold back odours from bad smelling paint. You must use an appropriate alkali resisting primer as you have been advised. Thanks
