Water damaged ceiling redecorated after 3 years, one coat of Zinsser and two coats white matt did a perfect job. Quick and easy, just what you need for a client in a hurry!

Burst storage tank damage.
Used to cover up large watermarks on plasterboard ceiling and hole repair patches.
Finally got round to repairing after being left a few years.
A couple of tips, make sure room is cool before applying as it dries very quickly, if room warm you have trouble spreading over enough area end up reloading brush for every stroke.
I also had to cover full ceiling and full wall as you could see the patches treated with BIN with emulsion on top. (Looked better than parts not treated) also primed new skirting, gloss went on with one coat.
You need methylated spirit to clean up, turps is no good.
Will use for many more jobs as have more than half tin left.

The Zinsser BIN initially seemed expensive and so I was pleasantly surprised at how far a tin will spread. First time i have used it to seal in bleeding from mahogany. After 3 coats, it is well and truly sealed. Will buy again.

I was recommended this sealer by a professional decorator, because I was going to paint a room which had 24 years of nicotine staining and a water stain. 1 coat of Zinsser and it covered the lot.
This product far exceeded my expectations.
