Summary of Steps for:
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.
Many Gulf South house painters today will merely spot-prime your home before painting it, neglecting much of the surface of the house. Some will even skip the second coat of paint after applying a thick first coat, telling you that it’s enough. Maybe it was enough with lead-based paints, but not anymore. 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.
