To Prime or Not to Prime: When A Two-In-One Isn’t Enough


While our range of two-in-one paint and primer products will do for many projects, sometimes a special situation calls for a coat of a stand-alone primer first, such as:
  • Sealing new or bare surfaces, such as new drywall
  • Preventing smoke, water, grease and mildew stains from consistently bleeding through to the surface
  • Making a major colour change (A tinted primer may be needed for deeper, more intense colours)
  • Painting over a glossy surface
  • Ensuring the topcoat will not be absorbed into the surface such as untreated wood surfaces
  • Transitioning from oil to latex.
