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.

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.
