Do I need to buy primer?

Paint Question from: Daniel Yeung, Richmond (British Columbia) Posted: May 28, 2012

Is primer needed before starting to paint?


In most cases, yes.

Answer from: Trish Elgin Posted: May 28, 2012

Primer has many advantages. It can be used to cover dark colours, block stains, and help paint adhere and last longer.

Always use primer on new drywall and on drywall patches on previously-painted walls.


Do I need to wash my walls first?

Paint Question from: Esther Yu, Toronto (Ontario) Posted: May 28, 2012

Is it really necessary?



Answer from: Trish Elgin Posted: May 28, 2012

Washing your wall surfaces first is always a good idea, especially in kitchens and bathrooms where moisture and mildew can build up on painted surfaces. A quick wash with TSP and a rinse with clean water will prep your wall surface for painting.
