BENEFITS OF PRIMING BEFORE YOU PAINT
Primer is a preparatory coating that you use onto the wall before painting it. It seals the surface, so the paint adheres to the surface instead of soaking into the wall.
Priming ensures a uniform paint finish, blocks tannin, water, grease and smoke stains that can bleed through your topcoat and improves adhesion of the topcoat so your paint will last longer and look better.
– Save Time and Money:
Primers seal the surface, and when the surface is sealed, you use less paint. You do not need multiple coats of paint to get an even, consistent finish.
If you use a quality primer, one coat of primer and one coat of paint is enough for a great-looking paint job.
– Make Paint Colors Richer:
Primers hide previous colors, preventing them from showing through and changing the color of your paint. The final will result will be more vibrant and beautiful colors if you prime first.
– Block Stains:
Most stains will bleed right through paint. Primers seal in stains and prevent them from ruining your paint job. New water-based primers block all stains (even water stains), so you start your paint job with a clean canvas.
– Paint Anything:
When you use a primer as your first coat you can paint anything – even ceramic tile and formica cabinets. Primers are formulated for tenacious paint adhesion to all surfaces.
– Make Your Paint Job Last Longer:
Primers prevent common paint problems like cracking, peeling and blistering and your paint will retain its original color longer.
