Hi guys,

Kind of stupid question here but I was hanging a drywall sheet overhead yesterday. In order to hold it up while getting my drill i balanced the sheet on my bald noggin. When I got it up I noticed the sheet had a oil stain on it.

Do I need to fix this pre primer and paint? If so how would one go about it?

Thanks it's my first time hanging drywall. I am a tradesman just not so much in this particular trade but some things do transfer and that helped with measurements and other things.

Thanks in advance.

Oil stain will seep through latex paint....need to prime with a stain blocker. Most famous is kilz but every store has their own brand that works just as good.

You can test for discoloration prior though, just brush a test patch overtop and see if covers.
