    Talking Painting Manufactured Home Walls

    I am in the process of remodeling the interior of a Double Wide that has already been remodel on the exterior to give the illusion that it is not a double wide at all woo hoo!!

    But, I'm running into a problem!! I have started in my smallest bathroom!! I has proceeded to taking the wood strips off of the walls and put sheet rock puddy in the cracks to fill them in! Now What i need to know is this!

    What type of Paint would I need to use to paint the walls?!?!? How Many Coats? Any what brand of primer would be the best? (ie Kilz?... ect...) Please reply and let me know! I would like to finish ASAP! Thanks Sooo Much!!!

    I know exactly what you are talking about. First off those cracks that you put the joint compound on will probably rickrack in a short period of time what you need to do is use caulking compound on those cracks let that dry and then skim it with the joint compound, by doing it this way you can still keep the walls flat. If you were to use drywall tape on them, you would have to use too much joint compound and then every seem would show. The caulking should still help it to last for quite some time. After you've done that you would prime it wath Kilz and thin finish coat wath a latex low Sheen or gloss latex. I hope this helps.
