Why Priming is so Important

Modern paints contain only water, latex, and pigment; however, paint once contained lead-based chemicals. These chemicals acted as a glue to hold the paint to the surface being painted. Since modern paints lack the bonding agent, we must use primer before paint application. The primer acts as the glue to bond the paint to the surface of your home.

Proof of the importance of primer can be found on any can of paint. The paint’s guarantee is valid only if primer is applied to all surfaces before painting them, and if 2 coats of paint are applied.

All too often, other Gulf South house painters only-spot prime on raw wood surfaces and then shoot one thick final coat. They will even tell you this is enough. And it WAS enough with old school paint jobs. At Rhino Shield, our house painters will carefully apply a special primer to ALL surfaces of your home that will be coated. This will act to bond the ceramic product to your home’s exterior and to create a protective seal.
