Mr. Contractor – You Know Better Than This!

This home is under construction, and the wall to be papered was not to be painted or textured. So the builder wrote “NO TEXTURE” across the wall, to remind the painters.

Only problem is HE USED INK! Bad, bad, BAD! Ink bleeds through wallpaper. Sometimes it does it quickly, sometimes it takes a few months. But rest assured, it WILL work its way through and expose its ugly head.

So, if any ink (or grease, or rust, or blood, smoke, or other substance likely to bleed through or stain) is on the wall, it has to be sealed. KILZ (oil based, only) is the best product for sealing stains. You can see on the right side of the photo that I have started to paint over the writing with the primer.
