What You Need To Know About Primers Being Used in Florida

Priming the walls before painting is a crucial step in any interior painters or repair project. Priming the surface before painting helps prepare, seal, and preserve it, leading to superior results on both the interior and outside. Priming properly will provide better adhesion between the top coat and surface, help seal in stains, and produce a smoother, more even finish.

Why Should You Consider Using Primer?

There are a few scenarios in which a primer would be useful. It prevents stains from penetrating, makes the surface smoother, and improves paint adhesion. Raw, unpainted wood, drywall, masonry, all naked surfaces that are not porous, uncoated metal or plastic, water stains, and other sorts of stains are issue surfaces that will not handle paint well and should be primed before painting. If you want to prevent a deeper color from leaking through, you need to prime the surface. Glossy spots, grease, and other impediments to paint adhesion also require priming.

When Priming Is Not Necessary

If the surface is clean, dry, and has a low porosity, priming might not be required. Common rooms that don’t require priming include the dining room and the bedroom. If there are no stains or markings on the walls, if the old and new colors are quite similar, or if you are painting over an already painted surface, priming is not required.

Don’t Trust Paint and Primer Combos

Branding paint as “paint and primer in one” is a common marketing ploy used by paint companies. You can’t compare these paint and primer combos to regular priming and painting. The only difference is in the labeling, most of the time. This is a shrewd strategy, as most do-it-yourselfers prefer to minimize extra work. Don’t buy into this falsehood. If you want a work that looks great and lasts, use a professional painting company like Halls Painting to do it for you.

Hall's Painting completed the inside of our home last week. We could not be happier with the results. The work was professional. The company was very committed to customer service. Heather could not have been more willing to assure our satisfaction. Hadley was an exceptionally talented painter! Mindy was a very efficient office coordinator. Any issues/concerns that we had were resolved courteously, immediately and efficiently.It was a leap of faith, and one that we were thrilled to have taken, to have our home painted while we were not even living here yet! This business exemplifies integrity, honesty and trust. Therefore, we highly recommend them to anyone in need of quality painting. Our thanks to all of the staff at Hall's Quality Painting!read more

Knowing what I know now, HQP will be my only call. I tried other painting contractors and half didn't even bother to call back. Since HQP maintains an office, Heather will probably answer the phone and set something up. During the walk-through, Ben pointed out things other contractors had missed. When the crew arrived, they were very professional and courteous, plus being excellent painters. We're very pleased with the whole experience. Highly recommend.read more

We recently used Halls to do an entire interior repaint of our beach place. They were very professional, reliable and the quality of workmanship was excellent. As a family run business, Hall's offers a wonderful balance of personal, caring service along with an exceptional level of workmanship that one might expect from a larger contractor. Although we were out of town while the work was being done, we could count on the crew to be respectful of our property and belongings. Their communication was excellent and they stand behind their work.read more
