Summary of Steps on:
Until 1978, all paints contained lead based chemicals that acted as a glue to hold paints onto your home. Since then, new laws have taken everything out of paint except water, latex (acrylic or vinyl), and pigments. As there are no bonding agents in paints today, you must use a primer specially designed for each different type of surface to ensure the paint will bond to the underlying surface.
Priming is a crucial step in the painting process. In fact, most paints are only guaranteed if primer was applied to all surfaces being painted AND two coats of paint are applied. You can read this on any can of paint.
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. 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.
