Why Priming is so Important

All indoor and outdoor paints contained lead until the late 1970s. The lead was used as a bonding agent to hold the paint to your home like glue. However, as lead-based paints are no longer used today, modern paints lack the ability to truly bond to the surface of your home. That’s why primer is so important. The primer acts as a glue, ensuring that the paint will bond to the home’s surface.

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.

Sometimes when you hire other Gulf South house painters, they will only apply primer to a few “needy” spots rather than to the entire surface. This happens much more often than you may think. These other Gulf South house painters will even tell you that priming the entire surface is not necessary and that one thick coat of paint is enough. That is why we apply a special primer to all surfaces to be coated to protect against bleed through and to provide a bonding surface for the coating to adhere to. This primer, when dry, is a sticky adhesive that acts as a bonding agent for the topcoat.
