Sap is leaking through the paint on our interior moulding. Can this moulding be saved by stripping and sealing, then painting or do we need to start with new moulding? If it can be saved, what product is used to seal the wood? Thank you.

Exclamation

I've always been told something like Bullseye primer or KILZ will prevent seepage. Of course, the woodwork would have to be painted then.....

Cool

Marcia,
Kilz, as suggested, is a good product to use for sealing out things like the sap you are having trouble with, although if there is a LOT of sap, it will probably push through whatever you put over it until it is all drained out. I don't think I would replace the mouldings because the new ones could have the same problem, however, if it was only a piece or two it might be less trouble. You might be able to force out the sap by heating the wood cautiously with a heat gun and then using the Kilz. Good luck.
