Importance of Primer Before Painting 

Strong coverage and an even foundation provide the best canvas for your paint application.

The benefits of applying primer before painting are as follows: 

  • Conventionally, primers serve as base coats on timber surfaces, drywall, metallic surfaces, masonry, plastered surfaces, and worn-out surfaces. Complicated materials that are porous and difficult to varnish, like wood, concrete, etc., can also be furnished effortlessly after applying primers.
  • Primers cover those tiny holes, cracks, wooden blemishes, and natural pigments that would otherwise require numerous paint applications. Primers prevent these blemishes from reflecting after painting.
  • Primers provide a neutral base; thus, the vibrance of your selected paint color oozes out with perfection. You can also try pigmented primer options for lighter color themes.
  • Primers are aimed to be water-resistant to act as a seal against mold growth and rusting.

Primers can save that extra money you’ll spend on applying too much paint and getting it retouched now and then. Always apply primer before painting to make the paint last longer than ever!
