water stained ceiling

After one of our many hurricanes a couple of years ago, some of my ceilings were water stained. After awaiting the insurance issues, I have attempted to paint the ceiling, but the water stain refuses to go away. I have used a couple of coats of Kilz to no avail. Any suggestions that do work?

Re: water stained ceiling

Did you use oil based Kilz or latex? I find that latex is no where as good as the oil based.

You may still ahve a water leak, what needs to be done is take the water damage out and replace with new. putting stain kill on a water leak will not fix the problem, take the bad area out.
