The answer is… In some situations a paint may not require a primer. (Like when repainting a previously painted surface in sound condition)
Primer and paint have very separate and distinct purposes and in the right situations you will need two separate products. Paints are formulated to give you rich colors and duarbility. Primers are formulated to solve problems (sealing porous surfaces, water stains, smoke damage, etc.) and enhance the properties of paints (color,finish & washability).
To find out if you need a primer or if a self priming paint will work for your situation call us at one of our stores. Primerless Paints.
