Level 5 Primer-Surfacer from CGC


I am starting a wallpaper repair job for a painter friend of mine, (which I asked for help on how to repair earlier). He has told me of a product from CGC called "Tuff Hide". Has anyone used it? Will this replace the skim coat reqired for my walls? Is this snake oil? Im adding the link below.

Thanks.

Tuff Hide is a good product. It still won't allow you to skip the skim coat. Its a level5 product, not a "coat" of mud

Would it be a good finisher after I skim the walls?

Its a really good level5 finish. Not sure what your asking, but if after you finish and sand your job, and you want a level5 product to apply to the walls, yes Tuff Hide is a great product. It is applied with a a sprayer, so I am assume you are going to spray it on. You will need to sand again after the product is sprayed.

What's the final finish going to be? Smooth? Textured? What are the lighting conditions like? What kind of paint sheen?

A level 5 primer is only needed for smooth walls in which semi-gloss (or shinier) is going to be used, or in which the lighting conditions are....how you say......unfriendly to the finisher. Your painter buddy should be able to make level 4 work just fine. That's why God made 1-1/4 nap rollers!

HAHA!

Thanks, I just needed some amo not to use this. I had never heard of it and he wanted to spray it on instead of me skimming the walls.

Keep your stick on the ice!
