Priming and Painting

Most quality paints are now offered as “Paint and Primer in One.”  Even so, there are still times when you should use a primer before you paint, even when using top-quality paints.

Priming and Painting

Use a primer in these scenarios:

o  You’re painting fresh or repaired drywall

o  When the surface is raw or stained wood

o  When there are stains from water damage

o  When smoke odor has seeped into the walls and needs to be blocked

o  When there has been mold or mildew on the painted surface, even if it has been cleaned

o  When painting over a glossy sheen
