Paintmywalls recommends having primers to have good paint finishing on the wall and it revokes that Primers inevitable part of the painting.
We all have come across the term “PRIMER” when we decide to get our house painted. But the majority of people are totally unaware of its property. If you are among them, here is a detailed blog on
What primers and what role it plays during painting?
A Primer is a layer of coating that is applied to materials that need to be painted. Primers are acknowledged to increase the life of paint and its look. Let us throw some light on its uses, importance, and types of primers that are available in the market.
What are Primers used for?
Primer can be used for:
a) Proper adhesion of paint to the painted surface.
b) When primers are applied prior to painting, the surface will tend to be long-lasting.
c) It seals the pores and small openings and gives a shiny touch post-painting.
d) It can to some extent reduce the peeling and cracking of paint.
Different Types of Primers
a) Drywall primer:
The new drywalls will be soaking paint and there will be unevenness in the painted surface as some areas may soak more and others may soak less. To get an even look for the walls, one can by all means use Dry Wall Primers.
b) Wood Primers:
Wood Primers increase the life span of wooden materials and help in proper adhesion.
c) Stain Blocking Primer:
Satin blocking primers are applied when the walls are either greasy or dark colour. They can also be used overtop of crayon markers.
Why is primer necessary for pre-painting?
Applying primer over new surfaces might reduce the amount of paint being absorbed by the surface. You don’t have to prime the previously painted surfaces if the walls are in good condition. Moreover, interior repainting doesn’t need priming except where there are stains or the colour you are applying mismatches the existing colour.
Options are available where you can get the paint and the primer in one product and it will be suited for previously painted interior surfaces that are in good condition. But in most other situations, especially on exterior projects, it requires a separate coat of primer.
