Drywall Repair - Need Gardz?
We just had some drywall in our family room repaired as there were some seams popping. The repairs are more extensive than I expected and I am now worried about getting an even sheen on the paint.
I planned on hiring painters for the first time to do the painting but I am worried they won't prime correctly or be as methodical as my husband and I are when we paint. In fact, the first guy to give a quote was resistant to priming at all (patches weren't up yet though).
Will 2 goats of something like Zinsser 123 be enough for priming or do I need to use Gardz to be sure? We used that on other walls where we had damage after removing wallpaper and it worked well. Not sure if I can get a painter to use Gardz and whether the entire wall should be covered or just the patches? Could we just put Gardz over the patches (ourselves) and then do 2 coats of regular primer (by the painter)?
I just feel uncomfortable trusting painters on this. Thanks.
