Is that what is called "ensolite"? We are wanting to repaint the foam/insulation on the roof of our Boler. Should we use a base coat of "Kilz" first since there is some old mildew issue? And after that should we sue a bathroom paint or?...
Thanks!

sarah,

I just painted my ensolite. A good primer and then a kitchen bath paint that is anti-mildew. It's easy.

Did you use a brush or roller to paint it?
And you use the same paint on the walls and cupboards?
Thanks again!

I used a foam roller and a brush for the tight corner areas. The wood i lightly sanded first. Same paint for everything.

I used a regular roller, but a shorter version. I did not sand the cabinetry, just primed it. Same paint all over.
