Why Should You Use Primer?

KD Painting

Using primer is often skipped or thought of as an unnecessary step in the painting process, however using primer provides many benefits. Here are a few:

  • Primer seals new or repaired drywall, masks imperfections, and provides a smoother finish.
  • Primer helps paint adhere better to the surface.
  • Primer increases the durability of the finish.
  • Primer can reduce overall paint cost because it generally cost less than paint. In case you’re making a drastic color change from a dark to a light color, you can paint a few coats of a tinted primer and reduce the number of paint coats you need.
