Forum Title: Prevent skim coat from peeling
Hey gang, I've got a job coming up that is to skim coat walls that have previously been painted or had wall paper on them. I'm nervous about my work peeling off down the road as I've been out on tons of repair jobs to fix this type of failure. My idea is to use something like GARDZ or Girpper to seal the walls first. Buuuut those products are kinda glossy (well not flat), and I'm worried that the mud is not gonna have a good purchase. Anyone have any knowledge about the proper procedure? Thanks!

It dries fast, will give you the rougher surface you want, and will seal in any water stains, or any other abnormalities that may come up. Make sure to use a good respirator too Sent from my SM-A520W using Tapatalk
