We have half log siding and bead board on interior of 3 season porch which has been painted a light color with an interior semi-gloss latex. Porch also has hot tub and has been very humid at times. The knots in the wood have "popped" through the paint. What is the best way to cover? Have tried heavy-duty Kilz and they are coming through that.


not sure what to tell you. You might have to fill them with Energy Seal when the fall out.

Sorry I wasn't clear about "popping". What I meant was the color of the knots is coming through the paint and after putting on the Kilz, they still are coming through. It is worst on the bead board. Any further suggestions? Thanks.
